“Talent” is optional for singers in today’s auto-tune-diseased, gimmick-polluted music industry. After weeks of heated debates, wig snatches and touchscreen warfare over Pt. 1, it was only right that we drop a Pt. 2. Here are ten more of the worst R&B (and Pop) singers in the game. Take a look.

Janet Jackson Janet is a living legend. Music icon. Queen of the Whispersetto. But let’s be real, she can’t sing worth a clearance rack of damns. Whisper passionately? No artist greater. SING…well? Never in her 46 years on Earth. Photo credit: Instagram
T-Boz TLC’s cigarette smoky-voiced lead singer sounded like an old raggedy lawn mower on 99% of the popular group’s hits. For reasons unknown, people LOVE her when they should really want to fight her for ruining perfectly good songs.
J. Lo Jenny Cakes is one of the worst “singers” in the history of life and sound. Amazing on mute, especially during live performances, she belongs on the Mount Rushmore of completely-worthless singers. Photo credit: Instagram
Rap’s auto-tune-fueled phenomenon swears he can SANG but…can’t. In his mind, he’s Ronald Isley but, in reality, the musically-hypnotic hitmaker sounds like unpaid child support and struggle.
The-Dream The skinny-fat glob of fashion confusion is musically-brilliant with a platinum pen but complete trash, vocally. If you like The-Dream, it’s because you’ve learned to block out his Muppetish falsetto to enjoy his undeniably-catchy records. Photo credit: Instagram
Ashanti The tragically-talentless singer and her lustrous, super-silky sideburns were the product of top-notch songwriting, production and marketing. Like Rihanna, it never mattered that Ashanti sounded like tortured wildlife because she made dope music.
Keith Sweat No R&B crooner has ever whined, moaned and begged like Keith Douglas Sweat—King of “Why you ignoring my texts and calls?”-Soul. Vocally-draining, he’s easily one of thee absolute WORST male R&B singers ever.
Kandi Burruss There’s a reason why the greasy, nasally, vocally-trembly singer/songwriter/reality star never flourished as a solo artist. Yes, we tolerated her sassy yodeling on Xscape records but everything after that…NO. All Nope. 100% Nah. Always and forever, never.
