Top 10 R&B Singers

Whether it's a soulful story about real-life trouble or an ultra-romantic ballad, R&B's silky smooth sound is a pop music staple. So which R&B singers are the best when it comes to getting us in touch with our emotions? Find out Kidzworld's Top 10 R&B Singers!

No.10: Frank Ocean

He may be the kid on the block, but new Orleans-native Frank Ocean is definitely making waves in the R&B world with his fresh new take on the genre in both sound and lyrics.

No.9: Rihanna

No.8: Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys was a singing prodigy with her roots firmly in soul and jazz, and soon her talent was recognized by audiences everywhere.

Alicia always sings in the right "key"
 

No.7: Cee Lo Green

Southern singer Cee Lo made a name for himself in the underground at a young age, but won over audiences as the new king of soul with his hit song "Forget You" and his partnership with DJ Dangermouse as Gnarls Barkley. You can catch him on TV every week as a judge on The Voice.

You won't forget Cee Lo Green once you hear him sing.
 

No.6: Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is in a class of her own when it comes to R&B divas, with a stunning nearly unparalled 5 octave vocal range and the ability to move effortlessly between octaves in a single lyric.

Mariah Carey
Mariah's still on fire!
 

No.5: Trey Songz

Up-and-comer Trey Songz has been putting out albums for years, and slowly climbing up the charts, he's quickly risen as one the foremost young R&B singers on the scene - and guess what, he's a pretty good rapper as well!

Trey Songz has produced tons of R and B tracks
 

No.4: Usher

Usher has dominated the charts as one of the best male R&B singers since '90s, with no sign of stopping. From slow jams to club hits, Usher does it all.

No.3: Beyonce

Starting out as part of the girl group Destiny's Child Beyonce's talent became too much to be contained in the group and when she struck out as a solo artist she also struck musical gold, arguably unparalled in beauty and likability and a set of pipes that set her apart from the rest.

Beyonce
Beyonce's been at the top the charts time and again
 

No.2: Mary J. Blige

The original R&B diva Mary J. Blige has seen it all (and sung it all) over the course of her career, finally coming to the conclusion that she was ready for "no more drama in her life!"

Mary J. Blige
Mary J. Blige worked her way up from humble beginnings
 

No.1: R. Kelly

Churning out album after album R. Kelly has been the reigning king of R&B for nearly two decades.

R. Kelly
There's no denying that R.Kelly is the R and B King
