I Think Usher is still the King Of R&B And Chris Brown is the Prince of R&B !
I second that. Trey is a prince too! But Usher is definitely the king of R&B.
says the pedafile who likes lil girls YE ITS TRUE he just dont like trey songz, chris brown dont write his shit usher dont write his shit but usher gets my respect cause he been doing it since a kid and him and jd got to many classics. trey songz way better than a woman beater.
Chris Brown has also been doing it since he was 15, just like Usher. He has had some ups and downs and his career but none of that matters. A loyal fanbase has forgiven him, and obviously Kelly sees a bright future for him. Agreed that Usher is the King of R&B but he is starting to fall off. Here I Stand was horrible, and Raymond Vs. Raymond was decent, but it will never be Confessions. Chris brown has had 3 out of 4 GREAT albums along with 3 mixtapes. What’s that called? The ability to be versatile. Trey Songz as well.
The Weeknd. Nuff said. @JuiceBellamy
Chris is easily the most talented out of the 3 though…..
All this talk about Chris Brown, Trey Songz, Usher, Yes they are all talented and have great song’s, but what about Ne-yo I think he deserves to be nominated for King Of R&B, not to mention he’s probably written or co-written your favorite singer’s song
@focus “Most Talented” ??????????????? In What Usher Has A Way Better Vocal Range And Did Everythhing That Chris Is DOing Now Way Before Chris Even Started Flips Stage Show And All
Hahaha what about Ne-yo he said. Who? Man Usher been making some hot trash for the last few years. Can’t give the knock out king anything. I’d give it to Mister-steal-yo-girlfriend. Hell i might give it to Lloyd or Dream. These dudes made some good stuff though. But damn there are a lot of good rnb artist who could easily take that title. R.kelly needs to sit his ass down.
The Weeknd is gonna takeover soon though…dude music is addictive…
I think Frank Ocean is better than Chris Brown and Trey Songz. But R. Kelly will always be the king of r&b. Usher should stop he sucks now. He could barely sing anymore and I NEVER heard an album better than Love Letter
Usher…did a lot of things before chris but chris by far dances better than usher…usher’s dancing only looked amazing because he probably the best at his time but whatever usher can do chris can do and probably better..and just because you have a good vocal range doesn’t make a difference….chris can produce a hit easily…and most of his music has substance!! as well…* If you have chris on your hook…instant radio play !!!
Who the fuck is R Kelly to be giving out crowns??? His got took a long time ago. Usher been the King of R&B since 2004 with that Confessions album. Until Chris Brown can come out with classic album like THAT (instead of all that pop shit) he will only be but a prince….just like Trey Songz (who can only manage to come out with 1 or 2 good songs per album).
@Focus….it aint about dancing, its about quality singing and making great songs. By your logic, Ciara is better than Aaliyah because she could dance better….but we all know Ciara can’t hold a candle to Aaliyah.
Chris Brown definitely has the potential to be the King of R&B….but he aint there yet. Not even close.
Chris has the complete package….and I don’t even think ciara is that good of a dancer…i don’t see the hype…all she does is pelvic thrusts….
Aaliyah had the it factor…. someone who could sing the song better than aaliyah …cant sell it like aaliyah could have (Though talent is important…its also how you yourself can appeal to the widest range of fans).
Chris has that it factor too…chris was well on his way to take over until he fucked up and hit rihanna….but he’s back on track…
Trey Songz iz the king of R&B MUSIC wise…I ainta dancey nigga but dat shyt CB b doin is kinda ill…Usher is almost fuckin irrelevant in my opinion at this point…Trey Songz dat nigga…Kellz musta heard that diss on dat Jayz beat that autotune bullshit lol
usher is pop these days and has been for a minute, Kellz is still king imo. n i dont seen anyone taken that away soon
Migule is the future of rnb…for all the reasons you picked everyone eles…hes a rookie in the game…doesnt have the most swag…not a huge fanbase…and fame wasnt handed 2 him so with hard work,his lyrics and the abilty 2 be very different he will be the next biggest recording artis next 2 M Jackson and lil wayne let alone the king of rnd…till then who ever was king still is
Just on different subject brothers gotta start showing more love and respect to the motherland, you ignoramuses talk about Africa like it ‘s 1911, South Africa, and Nigeria, just to name a few countries are very cosmopolitan and progressive places and R(apist) Kelly ought to know better. Now I’ll breathe!!!
Usher is the king, Chris is good but no way he can sing better or hit a note better than Usher (or Trey Songz). Look @ Me Now got people thining he’s better at R&B than Usher? Usher’s There Goes My Baby was one of the best straight R&B songs in the past years. She Aint You is hot but we’re talking about singing here…R&B=singing not dancing! Miguel is great too, the future IMO, but he needs better promotion.
R. Kelly has lost his damn mind! By far, Chris Brown is the best. Trey Songz is just as good as Chris Brown but a little better. Trey Songz albums have strings of single hits from Just Gotta Make It, Gotta Go, my favorite I Can’t Help But Wait to Can’t Be Friends- he got strings of hits. Ne-Yo is already known as one the best song writers and the best talented/best R&B artist in the game!!! Don’t forget the talented Dwele and do not sleep on the most underrated R&B artist- RAHEEM DEVAUGHN !!! He will if not, be right there with the upper echelon. I like Omarion, coulda be the best now, but he went through record label trouble, he shouldn’t gone to Young Money in the first if he knew he gonna get release by Weezy. I hope he find the right record label so that he O can get support. As of now, Trey Songz, Ne-Yo, and Chris Brown all three in the same class, different style.
Waaaaat u guys are sayin usher is the king of r nb are on drugs ma nigga kells has too many classics he da reason y everybody havin kids nowadays and back in the 90′s n don’t forget about da trapped in thhe closet serious I mean come on who can do that shit.he is not perfect though he has that situation that happen wit dat little girl but my opinion is that regular people do way worse things than that and that little girl was tryna be grown n be fast n den she tried to get money for dat n r kelly got off it so I been forgave him n he still givin me those hits his last 2 albums are way better than all of ushers albums don’t get me wrong usher is nice but r kelly takes it and r kelly don’t like trey songs cuz trey is arrogant and he really is jus like r kelly but chris brown is the prince cuz he is the most talented
Y’all can’t b serious I like chriz trey neyo and usher.but chriz I by far the better dancer hez had a bunch of omg performaces he can hang with singing..example crawl takeyou down younglove..he got da hitz prolly more hitz den all of dem with you look at me now wall 2 wall deuces da only 1 I ay can make better mainstream music den him iz loyd singingg trey I tprolly usher but 4 eveyr thing al of the artist did I seen and heard chriz do it b4 and better I thing all around chris got it by far..hiz hitz are not only big but dey last and hooz performanceses are awesome chris iz da king of rnb
u guys have lost it….chris brown has been using autotune since he first came out..so has drake. Know ur facts about R&B people..because some of ya are not making any sense..In the industry of R&B.. R.kelly has been holding down…R&B cats from kelly’s time “keithSweat” “JOE” “CASE” and “Aaron hall” ain’t doing much lately compare to r.kelly… Usher on the other hand is very talented..In fact he’s better than Chris brown.. so what if Chris is a better dancer wtf lol who cares, he cant sing the high note compare to usher..and Trey songz (yupppppppppppp) are u serious is that R&B or gibberish. Trey songz should be humble…i remember he crazy just because someone compare him to r.kelly…thats a compliment u fool.. but the new cats like the weeknd and frank ocean and even Miguel, my hat goes of to them because there new and humble.
Trey Songz is the new king of R&B……….. Alot of people like CB because he can dance and not because of his music……… Me and Chris became friends at 12 or 13 years old, I havent seen him since he got famous but I am a fan of his music ( not because I was cool with him ) but I dont think he got Trey. I do think when Trey is done with the game Chris will take his spot, but Trey been the KING of this shit since the Anticipation mixtape……. and he is the first person in the R&B game to do a mixtape. ( that I know of ) Hey but they both are from VA so its all good at the end of the day -VA to NYC
The Weeknd and Frank Ocean are the future of R&B and are better singers than trey songz and chris brown
Honestly the throne I think is still with R.Kelly. His last album was really really good. Now the candidates that can dethrone him are: The Weeknd, Frank Ocean and, Chris Brown.
Trey King Now!!! R.Kelly just hating on Trey cuz he dissed him
Mr Steal your girl sucks with that yodeling he calls singing!!! R. Kelly & CB all day.
HAHAHA, whay ya’ll all forgeting is what makes you kind or prince is your ability to write & produce hits by yourself without relying on 3rd party producers & song writes which what Trey Songs, Usher & Chris Brown do…so after R Kelly, the next talented man is, “The Dream”
i only know 3 most talented R&B music writers & producers that can churn out hits after hits after hits
R Kelly, The Dream & Babyface….Usher & Chris Brown are just dancers
HAHAHA, whay ya’ll all forgeting is what makes you Kind or Prince, is your ability to write & produce hits by yourself without relying on 3rd party producers & song writers which what Trey Songs, Usher & Chris Brown do…so after R Kelly, the next talented man is, “The Dream”
Lol yu guys r funny..r.kelly will always be tha king..once ur tha king yu stay tha king..he has hits for days..he even wrote songs for tha most talented ppl..Mj to name a few..lol soo don’t go there about him in his past..smh..and usher could never be tha king..lol with that omg song..smh sounds suspect to me..trey songz is good..but he do need to humble his self..hahaha neyo haha funny..he’s more of a pop guy..chris brown is good.but king noo..
USHER is POP not R&B that nigga is not a nigga
Hello There. I found your blog using msn. That is an extremely smartly written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to learn more of your helpful info. Thank you for the post. I will certainly comeback.
As said earlier by most p’ple, Kellz z by far d most respectable “King” of RnB. Buh i’d disagree with him crowning Chris Brown(assumably). Chris z only get’n d acknowledgement jez b’cos of d gud number of Hit tracks he had done ( most of whc r nt PURE RnB, sum r nt even written by him) n’ his acrobatic dance routines. He jez very versatile; he cud blend with difrnt genres buh dat shudn’t b mistaken 4 being compared 2 d likes of Trey, Ne-Yo or even Usher(Usher z obviously b’comin a Pop Act). Trey Songz vocal ability z enof 4 him 2 withstand d comparison btw he n’ Chris. Songz can go on a hiher pitch 4 a some seconds than Chris who z jez being assisted with auto-tune( most times). Trey cud emote, far beta in d Game of Pure RnB dan Breezy. P’ple don’t even remember my man Ginuwine anymore!
Maybe you all could agree on qualities that a rnb king should have before crowning anybody….even of Usher has some horrible albums but i can feel he does it for and from his heart and he enjoys what he does, another one i see on that is Frank Ocean, he is not just talented but also blessed with a unique passion. Neyo could be a genius but the songs he does for other do better than those he keeps for himself, i can say Trey is the next usher and Brown is good but i am not sure if good enough to be crowned. he needs some more time to prove that
