Top 12 Male R&B Singers Of All Time

The Top 12 male R&B singers of all time is an overwhelming and very debatable task to undermine. We at Urban Music 2000 compile a list that we think is fair and justifiable. One of these men is the actual King Of R&B, but that’s another topic for another day.

Almost every person has achieved insurmountable success as far as hits compiled, legacy songs, voice accuracy, and renowned worldwide.

Freddie Jackson Teddy Pendergrass Al Green Luther Vandross Al Green Smokey Robinson Stevie Wonder Usher Keith Sweat Babyface Donny Hathaway Barry White

It would be very hard for an artist in the 21st century to occupy the top spot. None of the artists beyond 2000 have had enough time to create a legacy, build a catalog, or rise in the ranks.
