So there i was lounging on my computer doing much needed research < internet surfing to update my self on current affairs before the boss steps into the office >when i saw that bill Board had released a list of the top 50 RnB/ Hip Hop artists of the past 25 years . And can you imagine who was at the top of the List : Robert Kelly !!! R.Kelly . Bullshit i must say . He is ranked above greats like MJ , Whitney , 2pac etc. I am flabbergasted <i have always wanted to use that word> And Usher is ranked above MJ. I want my money back !!
Here is the Top Ten List
9.Freddie Jackson <Who?>
7. Luther Vandross
2. Mary. J. Blige
Micheal Jackson is ranked at 13.
This is What billBoard says about R.Kelly : “R. Kelly
crowns our list of the top 25 R&B/hip-hop artists of the past 25 years with good reason. Since January of 1985, he’s amassed 35 top 10 hits on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs (the most of any act in the time frame) and a total of 84 charting singles. Among those are 11 No. 1s, including “Bump N’ Grind” (12 weeks at the top) and “Down Low (Nobody Has To Know)” (seven weeks) with Ronald Isley. Further cementing Kelly’s hitmaker status is his staggering 11 No. 1s on R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The R&B icon continued to post new chart achievements in 2010, as he notched his 56th top 40 single with “When a Woman Loves.””
