The Best Male R&B Singers Of 2023
If there ever was a year for male R&B singers, it's 2023. From Chris Brown's epic comeback to Gen Z singer-songwriter Steve Lacy's sudden rise to fame, this year's current roster of R&B male artists only continues to melt hearts across the globe. Crossover Billboard charts royalty The Weeknd, Khalid, and John Legend never cease to curate our weekly playlists with their catchy hit singles, and Heartthrobs GIVĒON and Lucky Daye consistently deliver premium content throughout their latest records. Maryland native superstar Brent Faiyaz indisputably defies “gravity” since releasing his sophomore album WASTELAND; and 2022 Album of the Year Grammy recipient (and Oscar winner) Jon Batiste has finally become a household name (with hopefully more film scores in the works).
