I thought for a small moment that it was white guys fighting on video and someone shouting 'Worldstar! Worldstar!' LOL

'They don't know about you & me' Hmmm, I heard more RT's music growing up so I am biased. All Tied Up is one of my jams this year.

He should have kept the light off in the jessie J YT still pic. Lawd he looks like an early 90s throw back.

And Adam L is 'soul'...to pale folk right? I love him but nuh uh. A few songs on SAJ but thats about it as far as soul' goes imo ijs. The band stays making pop/rock nowadays.Cry

Girl, I'm bout to put you over my knee!

But to answer the OP, Jon B without a doubt. Robin Thicke relies on that low mumbling and his falsetto too much.

Jon B just serves up soul on a platter!

That's why I put "soul" in quotation marks Ermm

He's not so much a soul singer as he is a soulful white singer (in comparison to other white singers, of course)

Just soulful. As in you can by the way he sings that he's been heavily influenced by African American vocalists

I don't think Adam is a bad singer, I love maroon 5 (except for last album), I don't find him soulful even compare to other white singers.

to answer the OP, Jon B

I like Robin Thicke, but his voice can be grating sometimes b/c of the falsetto. i don't want to hear all that all the time

plus it bothers me that his father was dude on growing pains and i hated that damn show
