Best R&B SingersThese are the most amazing RnB singers ever... take a look.
I was blown away when I first listened tobMichael Jackson Butterflies acappella. His range, pitch, delivery as a singer is perfect. Not only that Michael can sing all kinds of styles such as Broadway, Rock, Soul and classical. Did you know Michael Jackson was also an incredible beatboxer?
Putting a woman beater above the King of Pop is a crime.
The greatest of all time
The best singer ever
Amir Tataloo is the best R&B singer in the world.
Iranian best r&b singers
The best in the world.
For ever Amir tataloo
I think he's good, Confessions is one of my favorite r&b albums of all time and Here I Stand is great too, but he's definitely not better than Joe, Brian McKnight, Johnny Gill, Luther, Teddy, Marvin etc.
No way is ugly overrated beyonce higher ranked than this legend. Luther has more talent and worth than beyonce's entire career!
Beyonce above Luther is an insult to music. Beyonce not even r&b, pop is not r&b!
Beyoncé and chris brown above Luther? Wow. They shouldn't even be in the top 50, there are so many better singers than overrated beyonce and chris brown!
Luther should be number one. He's the master of vocal notes.
I'm kinda okay with Luther Vandross or Michael Jackson (who let's be honest, inspired Brian himself in some way) being above him but I wouldn't put Usher, Akon or Nicole Scherzinger (who are good but not as legendary as Brian) above him, and I definitely would not put Chris Brown or Beyonce (who are very overrated) even near him!
Love McKnight! His voice takes me to another dimension.
Half of the people above him shouldn't even be here.
No r&b without him
She has an amazing voice, enough said. Her songs don't always show it but just listen to her live and just know she has an amazing voice that rivals and even trumps that of Beyoncé's. I do wish that she'd stick more to the r&b genre though, since that that is where she excels the most. Leave the pop to katy perry, Britney spears, lady gaga and rihanna.
Shes good and deserves to be on the list but she definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass, Johnny Gill, etc.
She has a great voice and I wish she had more true r&b songs to show it off. Plus, don't forget she fine!
Nicole Scherzinger! No doubt about this chick!
He has one of the best voices I've ever heard! It's upsetting that people with so little talent are more famous than him.
He needs to be higher! He should be above Beyoncé the pretentious mainstream artist and Chris Brown who is no where as good as Johnny is and uses auto-tune on every song!
He has amazing vocals. Listen to "Wicked Games." "Starboy" is awesome and sincere. Just like Beyonce's "Hold Up", his "The Hills" and "Party Monster" reveals his darker persona. He should be at least 10 on the list
This man set the bar for modern R&B. His trilogy is still one of the best albums ever.
Listen to his old stuff (trilogy, kissland) and you understand that he should be higher on this list.
He should be somewhere near MJ he is too good!
I miss the days of Akon! He was everywhere and it was great. Now we have wack singers like ty dolla $ign, Bryson tiller, tory lanez, chris brown and august alsina who mostly sing about stupid crap and can't sing that well. THey will never replace Akon and T-Pain! The only one who comes close is the Weeknd but still his voice is very weak and girly!
He's good but definitely shouldn't be higher than Brian McKnight, Teddy Pendergrass etc.
He has one of the most best lyrical and flowing songs. Konvict, and Koncrete are the two of his albums that reached platinum.
We love you so much akon
Love me some Teddy P! Even if the production of the song is not that good, anything Teddy sings is magical! Luther too! He can make any song good, even if the production is meh. Wish we still had him today. If it wasn't for him we might not have Johnny Gill. Wish it was chris brown or b. smith who died and not Teddy or Luther.
This list is just sad. How is the man who inspired all of these people not even in the top five, let alone the top 10! And to make it worse, he is under beyonce, chris brown, rihanna, drake, Eminem and the weekend as well as some singers who are good but are not as legendary as than Teddy.
Best singer of all time
He's much better than the weeknd and frank ocean, him and BJ the Chicago Kid are the best doing it right now!
For a 2010's artist, he's one of the few good ones.
He has some r&b songs here and there, but he's more of a rapper to be honest. But I do think he's a better r&b singer than he is as a rapper. As an r&b singer he's kind of like a better version of The-Dream.
Given a lot of his new music isn't really R&B anymore. His older works are definitely worthy of some recognition. From 'With You' to 'No Air' with Jordan Sparks. Chris definitely has it in him if he ever chooses to go back to it.
To say this guy is talented is an understatement. He isn't even my favourite rnb artist. People will hate on him because of his previous problems, and he's not quite the role model but this list isn't about that! He is definitely one of the best voices in rnb now.
To me r&b is about uplifting music that speaks to lovers, not objectifying women. Therefore, this guy doesn't deserve to be on the list.
The best no matter what.
She's the queen, nobody can top her. Beyonce; take notes.
She is the breast singer!
One of the greatest r&b singers of all time is not number 1 and is below chris brown the mainstream pop artist, Akon who is good but not as legendary as R. Kelly is, and beyonce the pretentious mainstream artist?
This is just insulting. How is she not at least in the top 3? And she is under beyonce and rihanna? Those girls are nowhere near Whitney and never could dream of being half as great as she was. "Saving All My Love" is better than beyonce's entire career.
It's an insult to have her listed so low. Easily one of the greatest inspiration for a lot of R&B artists (especially women)
No one can sing better than Whitney!
How is she not at least in the top 5?
With his incorporation of K-pop elements he's somewhat strayed from his R&B roots. However, every now and then he releases a song that'll remind you he is an R&B artist.
The only guy in the whole list with creative writing and a perfect album.
Frank has no bad songs and all great albums, easily the best on this list
She's not as good as she once was but he set a high standard for female R&B artists.
This girl's on fire!
Maybe people have heard an Al Green song, they just didn't know the song was his. Another trailblazer for R&B artists.
