Female R&B Singers

List of the Top Female R&B Artists

With star female R&B singers like Kehlani and Jhene Aiko, along with a list of numerous other top talented rhythm and blues artists, the new generation of female R&B artists have broken out of the shadows of years of being dominated by the likes of Beyonce and have created their own platforms into generating millions of listeners worldwide. 

Modern day rhythm and blues can be dated back to the legendary era of the 1980s when Whitney Houston and Janet Jackson were the main female R&B artists, during a time when male artists dominated the charts and music scene. 

By the 1990s the rhythm and blues scene exploded.  One of the best times in music included both very successful solo female R&B artists and R&B groups in the form of Destiny Child’s, TLC, Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey and dozens of artists who produced and created timeless music and classics that easily stand the test of time.

While the 2000s were not nearly as popular as the 1990s, but with Keyshia Cole, Alicia Keys, Ashanti, Keri Hilson, and Ciara leading the way, along with top artists who made their debut during the 1990s continuing their success throughout the 2000s, it was not a disappointing era.

Today there is a long list of talented female R&B artists, from household names to on the verge artists with hundreds of thousands of followers and listeners that are only one hit away from reaching the next level.  The below list of over 25 top female R&B singers truly breaks down the present day rhythm and blues scene.
