    He sounds like somebody is squeezing his balls. At least put Ronald Isley on their to pretend you have some credibility

    I'm a fan of all 3, but they can't do what Bob did on that stage. Nothing really dynamic about Tank ripping his shirt off and standing in place for an hour, every night.

    Bobby doesn’t have the vocals they have but he’s an entertainer and dancer, they’re not.

    I couldn’t do a top 50, would be too hard. Like Silk and Hi Five, you putting them in as a group or their lead solo artists? Most of these groups didn’t have success as solo artists.

    For groups, I would have to sit and think

    Poison is one song I hope to never hear again in my life. That also goes for This Is How We Do It, DMX's Party Up and Baby Got Back

    Quite a few singers got exposed during this :lol:


    Al Green
    Ronald Isley
    Isaac Hayes
    Marvin Gaye
    Teddy Pendergrass
    Curtis Mayfield
    Mary J. Blige
    R. Kelly
    Stevie Wonder
    Dave Hollister
    Mariah Carey
    Jahiem
    Avant

    Went straight off the top of my head and could only come up with 13. Also went with who I directly grew up listening to. MJ is considered pop. My mom was an Aaliyah stan but I never cared for her music. I'll just use the Temptations as 2 spots :lol:

    Your mans Bruno Mars ruined it for me making that non-seasoned version Poison.


    I wanted to put Mike on there but other than a few joints here and there he stopped making R&B after Off The Wall.


    A full album of Lady In My Life's woulda been crazy. :smh:

    “Pop” is all-encompassing. Mike was an r&b artist whose r&b songs redefined pop music.
