Who Is The Best Male R&B Artist?

Submitted by on November 19, 2009 – 11:20 am15 Comments


Dear Twitter, what have I started? It all started when I saw a tweet from @ClifSoulo to @InternetGoon that said, “Trey Songz > Kevin Cossom“. So I got in on the conversation and told them about a wild and reckless comment my friend said that was, “Robin Thicke > Maxwell.”

Do you see how innocent this was? I didn’t even make the controversial statement. But it led to a great debate. It got pretty heated. Robin Thicke > Maxwell might be one of the most controversial statements of the year. OK not the year, the month. At least the day. Anyway, some agreed and some thought the originator of that comment should be slapped silly for even putting Robin Thicke in a class with Maxwell. Some of the replies are below.

For the non-twitter users, the person who made the comment is the name under the comment. The first highlighted name is the person they responded to which is why they all start with @MichelleHux. Follow me on twitter.




With all the replies, Maxwell definitely won amongst my twitter family. However, then somebody had to be difficult and add in more artists to an already difficult argument.

gavtweetSo due to Gavin’s tweet and others I had to rephrase my question to include, Raheem Devaughn, Raphael Saadiq, Bilal, Dwele, and D’Angelo. I asked people to rate them from best to worst (or least best really). Three of the results are below.

Once again Gavin adds some more to the crowd. This led to others asking: What about Anthony Hamilton, R. Kelly, Musiq, Eric Roberson, Prince, Stokley Williams from Mint Condition, Sam Cook, The Temptations, and Michael Jackson? Just to name a few.

So, good people of Dr. Jays Live, Who are the best Male R&B artists? Either currently in the game or of all time. We took it back with Prince, Sam Cook, and the Temptations but definitely include current artists.

Speak your mind!
