Who Will Be Named The Official King Of R&B?

R&B is far from dead. In 2019, Jacquees anointed himself the undisputed ruler of R&B and fans did not agree. Commenters mentioned Chris Brown and said he's today's true King of R&B.

R. Kelly has been named by fans consistently as they engaged in the debate over which male artist is the King of R&B. Known as "The King of Soul," Otis Redding was one of the greatest R&B singers of all time.

R. Kelly, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Mariah Carey help to make R&B more popular today than what it ever has been. 90's R&B performances felt more intimate. The music was so great that the artist could literally just coast their performance and the crowd would still feel it.

For some people, their favorite type of R&B are the beautiful soul/r&b songs. You can feel the emotion in the lyrics. One song, full of soul/r&b can change the way you feel. Soul/R&B music speaks out to the public with it's strong vocals and touching lyrics.

Recording for over 50 years, Johnny Mathis is one of the best-selling artists of all time with over 350 million records sold—including 16 gold and six platinum albums.

Tyrese and Tank took to social media to firmly assert R.Kelly is the king of R&B and that Jacquees is a new artist who still has work to do. Whatever the outcome of his trial on charges of making child pornography, R. Kelly is overdue to relinquish the crown that he's worn as the king of R&B since the beginning of his music career.

Honestly I don't think there is a king of r&b right now, but we all have our own opinion. So what's yours? Comment below who you feel is the best R&B singer and should be crowned king.
