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.

What Would R. Kelly Say About Jacqees Naming His Album King of R&B?


Jacquees is teasing at R. Kelly and the rest of the R&B singers as he has just released a new album titled 'King of R&B.' I'm just imagining what R. Kelly things about this while he is still locked up behind bars.

Jacquees had boldly claimed he was the 'King Of R&B', but R Kelly, John Legend and more had a few things to say last year. 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.

The battle of the King Of R&B has been the topic of discussion since last year. The most popular form of R&B with globally recognized artists is Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Mary J Blige, Usher, R Kelly and Whitney Houston.

R&B was an African-American urban sound that evolved from blues and jazz. In the late 1940′s R&B was described as rocking and jazz based with a heavy and insistent beat. R&B was becoming popular because of it dance ability.

So now that we have learned more about the history of R&B, does this still make Jacquees qualified? I bet R. Kelly would say no to this. If you haven't heard Jacquees new album, then hear it below. Leave a comment on what you think of the music below!

Micah Willis (@iammicahwillis) - "Forget"

Sensational R&B singer and songwriter Micah Willis drops a brand new R&B single titled "Forget." "Forget" is a moderate tempo elevating R&B track with lyrics and theme leaning towards dance and "having a good time." "Forget" is a "feel-good" song somewhat written in response to the most recent world upsets and crises - especially the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020. According to Micah Willis, “Forget,” just as the song title suggests, is about “forgetting all the terrible times we had in 2020.” Micah believes it is time everyone goes out to have fun. Instrumentally, “Forget” is rooted in very solid R&B influences as it also taps some minor [but not insignificant] elements from genres like rap, trap, soul, and blues. The tranquilizing, fluid, and subtle piano harmonies/melodies meddled with rudimentary but thumping R&B drum grooves, trap percussions, cinematic sound effects, 808s, and the sensuous vocals of Micah Willis create not just an elevating atmosphere but also quite a calming and reassuring one. Willis as a musician is known to always push musical and overall creative boundaries in his compositions and writing. With a voice as soothing as water, Willis passes for both an R&B story-teller and a therapeutic singer. Talking about therapy, “therapeutic” is another perfect word to describe the single “Forget.” With naturally fluid and melismatic vocals, Willis manages to bring together influences from diverse and “not-exactly related” musical styles and genres to create a unique blend of a familiar genre like R&B - a special R&B blend typical of only Micah Willis. “Forget” is available on all music streaming platforms. You can also follow Micah Willis on all social media platforms to keep up with his ever-dynamic lifestyle.

R. Kelly Named King Of R&B


Jacquees says he's the King of R&B for this generation, but reports say otherwise. There has been no other R&B artist with more controversy or hits than the main man R. Kelly.

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.

A 'Kings of R&B' tour would be the perfect way to settle the debate. Put all the R&B stars together to perform and see who come out on top. We want to see record sales, crowd movement, and someone named the King.

Although R. Kelly has had problems in most of his music career fondling with kids, fans have come to overlook that due to his creation of hits. Women have always endure the star and loved the videos he has put forth.

With more than 38 million albums sold over the past 20 years, R. Kelly's provocative style and tender ballads have helped to define the sound.

The top 10 best R. Kelly songs. 8. “ It Seems Like You're Ready” 7. “ Feelin' On Yo Booty” 6. “ Ignition (Remix)” 5. “ Down Low” 4. “ I Believe I Can Fly” 3. “ Step In The Name Of Love” 2. “ Bump N' Grind” 1. “ Trapped In The Closet”

Understanding The Greatest Beef In R&B History


Not only do the Wrap-Up Magazine feel R. Kelly should be crowned the King of R&B, he also should go down as being part of R&B's greatest beef of all time!

Is R. Kelly King Of R&B Or Usher?


R. Kelly has been doing an amazing job lately at dodging court appearances and doing interviews like the one with Mrs. King.

Bobby Brown confidently proclaimed the title of King of R&B as well did Jacquees. Although Usher carry the lead in most hits created, fans seems to love R. Kelly music more.

R. Kelly's first solo album, 12 Play, was released on November 9, 1993, and yielded the singer's first number-one hit, "Bump N' Grind", which spent a record-breaking 12 weeks at number one on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart.

Usher has been fearless with his music. These are the two great rnb legends who have been singing for decades, though one, the younger, is more relevant up to present.
