Music is the way we feel fresh; sometimes we listen to music to feel good, sometimes to express our feelings, sometimes in the gym to feel more energetic from inside, sometimes to be happy, and sometimes to cry. In short, music soothes us. There can be no way out that we imagine our lives without music. Imagine your phone without music; it is more or less, a heart without heartbeats.

  1. Comment* Chris Brown rules supreme; he has a dynamic approach at music & has the most desirable voice, with a creative nature and biggest passion in his songs. Had it not being for the reputational comprose & legal ordeals he went through, he would have topped the list. Wenever he features a song, no matter how execrable it might, its always preferable.

  2. Usher is the coolest R&B singer. He gives some unique compositions. He has teamed up with many of other R&B singers and has rendered great music.

  3. Beyoncè is my most loved female singer. Her songs are very soulful.
    She is very popular and her concerts are amazing… She is a great performer. In her name, there are plenty of hit songs and chart toppers… Her voice has a great power to attract audience..

  4. Beyoncè is more famous thank Maraiah Carey. But, I think few more male singers have much more wealth. Singers like Akon, Florida are super rich and their songs and albums are very very famous.

    • Rihanna is a great singer too. She has established herself quite strongly in the R&B world. She has some biggest hits in her name too.
      Collaboration with Chris Brown, Eminem has got her big name.
