Aaliyah should be higher on this list. I love Aaliyah, It's just so sad we never got to hear more of her beautiful voice as she was taken from us, Her voice is like silk, so smooth and soft, I could kick back and Listen to Aaliyah every day, We miss You Princess Rest In Peace.x

I would just like to point out the fact that one of the most beautiful voices that has ever graced this planet is under Justin BEIBER on this list, this list is a joke...

I've always thought Aaliyah was amazing! Beyonce's cool, but I prefer Aaliyah any day. But sadley her life was taken August 25, 2001 in Marsh Harbor, The Bahamas. REST IN PARADISE AALIYAH. WE STILL LOVE YOU!

Rihanna is R&B, stop saying she is pop, how is anti pop? The Old singers on this list are mainly rock artists. Don't be stupid. Rihanna is a great singer and anyone who thinks otherwise is deformed in their ears.

Accidentally voted for him. I hate him as person but his rnb is alright. - SelfDestruct

He's grown from a boy into one of the sexiest men alive. I love his maturity and his sex appeal. I know he is amazing and will continue being the best at what he does. Love JB

His pop is garbage but his R&B is decent. I have to admit that. In rnb, he is not as bad as Aaliyah who was a slut. - SelfDestruct

I agree, aaliyah music is generic and overrated and lacks soul - DaWyteNight
