Singing ability has NEVER been more optional for singers than in today’s gimmick-polluted music industry. For every R&B/Pop artist with actual talent are 50 vocally-worthless audio terrorists with obsessive fanbases. In 2013, hype sells, talent don’t.
Here are the ten worst R&B singers in the game. Take a look.
Alicia “Off” Keys
This filth-hearted agent of darkness has unleashed her wrath upon us all with “Girl On Fire”—the single worst thing to ever happen to post-slavery America (other than George W. Bush, chicken & waffle flavored-chips and the ‘new’ Harlem Shake).
The lovable trainwreck’s voice is 95% tortured tropical bird – 5% shattered hopes and dreams. To her fans, it’s “Angelic.” To everyone else, it’s audio AIDs.
The 100% talentless beauty is like Kaylin from “Love & Hip-Hop: NY”—A young, dumb, love-drunk hostage who doesn’t care that she’s being held captive.
We love the gold-hearted singer/actress but hearing her scream like someone poured hot grits in her weave is pure torture that no innocent person deserves.
Mary J. Blige
There’s no doubting the crispy chicken Goddess’ impact on Hip-Hop/Soul but we all know she can’t sing worth a deep-fried damn. Timeless albums? Absolutely, but that won’t make her wayward squawks and squeals any more tolerable.
All Tremaine Neverson ever wanted was to “make it.” And when he did, he yodeled with the passion of a 1000 billy goats until his own fans hated him. Tragic.
Like MJB, the Ramen noodle princess is 92% raw emotion – 8% actual singing ability on records but we’d never say this to her face for obvious reasons. Sh*t, would you?
Cut from the same clearance rack fabrics as Britney, CiCi just exists in R&B/Pop—struggle-whispering over tracks for the few (17 to be exact) who still care about her career.
You would think the visually-stunning songbird who sounds like kittens in the microwave would be widely-ignored but she’s actually quite popular. Life’s never fair.
