After years of being confused about it, I’ve found that clearly, not everyone is supposed to be or going to be as big as an Usher, a Beyoncé, and most probably won’t get anywhere near MJ status on a global scale. But when highly talented individuals, especially good looking male singers with great pipes, don’t get or don’t get to sustain the popularity they once had, I always wonder why. Such is the case with the following 10 fellas, who throughout my pre-teens and adulthood, I’ve been a fan of. So what are they doing now and what went wrong on the road to stardom? Shall we find out?
And be ready to click (you’ve been warned, so save the complaints).
“And don’t you forget iiiiiit!” That was my jam! For those who don’t remember Glenn Lewis, the neo-soul singer with his funky curls and smooth voice garnered many a female fan after dropping songs like “Don’t You Forget It” off of his debut disk, World Outside My Window in 2002. The Canadian crooner was doing fairly well sales wise as his debut album peaked at number four on the Billboard 200, but as he prepared to release his second album with the single, “Back For More,” his release date got pushed back, and his album just wound up being shelved.

After releasing a new single this year, a duet with KeKe Wyatt called “You & I,” this gave us a reminder of the R&B singer, who sung the hits “Don’t Take Your Love Away” and “My First Love.
With the help of a continuously embattled (but still Hot) Chris Brown, last week, Keri Hilson debuted the song and video “One Night Stand” from her album, No Boys Allowed. The Hot duet, scorching from the recording to the dark video and its synchronized dance breakdown, brought to mind all the dope duets in Hot R&B over the years. Not the lovey-dovey Ashford & Simpson or Marvin & Tammi type joints, but the make your ears melt and make you turn it down when people come around type tracks. There’s too many to narrow down, but here are a few you’ll need to get a hold of ASAP.
