2 Joe

He's underrated and better than R. Kelly - DaWyteNight

3 Dave Hollister

Criminally underrated. One of the best voices of all time and he actually puts meaining into almost all of his songs unlike some people on here...not saying any names Robert, Raymond, Chris, Trey! - DaWyteNight

4 R Kelly

He makes great songs and has a unique legendary voice

One of the best r&b artists of all time isn't first and is under bruno mars the mainstream pop artist, trey songz who is good but not better, craig David who isn't as legendary as r kelly and jay sean the pretentious mainstream artist. Smh
