There are alot of white R&B male artist out there.

I think George Michael and Michael McDonald are the top two.
I believe Robin Thicke is a better singer than Jon B.

I never liked Jon B.He specializes in that boring,shit-hop sounding 90s R&B that I hate so much....the kinda crap that R.Kelly also does.Robin Thicke is influenced by real artists like Marvin Gaye and Curtis Mayfield....there's definitely a 70s vibe in his music,which I like.

Jon B. has clapped at Robin Thicke once again in a new interview with Allhiphop.com. He basically says Robin owes him for paving the way for R&B white boys, and he challenges him to a piano and vocal face off. Here’s a couple interesting quotes:

“I’ve never been on the cover of VIBE, but I don’t think that that is a good thing to really point out. It’s like damn, who are you to say that you deserve the cover? That’s kind of pompous to me. Just fall back and do what you do and don’t complain. You’ve been blessed.”
- Jon B on Robin Thicke’s complaint for not making the VIBE cover.

“Listen man, you have your career and I have mine. If it came down to a battle situation, where we were piano to piano, vocals to vocals, and he really wanted to test skills on some wild competitive type of stuff we could make it happen.” - Jon B on a battle with Thicke.

“I paved the way for a lot of white artists now that don’t have to deal with the stigma of being a white artist. I don’t think that people would be as open for non-African American artists like that if it I didn’t take a lot of the slack for them.” - Jon B on originally holding it down for white Soul artists.

Bring on the R&B white boy beef.

lol lol lol lol




I guess Jon B never heard of Hall & Oates, Simply Red, George Michael . . .
It's all his doing.
I guess next he'll tell us he's the first white guy to top the R&B chart . .
I don't want you to think like me. I just want you to think.

To an extent, John has a point. Since the dawn of the new music business, he has been one of the only white R&B artists. Practically everyone named (with the exception of Teena Marie of course) were not marketed as R&B artists. Yes, they had an R&B sound to them but that's not how they were marketed. Jon B. came up through the cushion of the LaFace era. He was never marketed towards a "crossover" crowd. He, like Teena, were always aimed at black audiences. He has always done R&B music. In the era we are in now where there is no musical middle ground and everything has a "box", you could say that he's right. Prior to the 90s, a lot of music shifted from genre to genre. That's all over. Jon stayed R&B and toughed it out. So, actually, he did help pave the way for Robin Thicke.
