We may be taking it back a bit for some of you, but in the 90s and 2000s, Mya was one of the best dancers in the R&B game. She also is a professional trained dancer, so that may have something to do with it. The dance moves in “Whoa” definitely put her on the map as a dancer to be reckoned with.
To this day, Ciara hands down remains one of the most talented dancers to ever do it! “Promise” had some of the best choreography in an R&B video EVER.
Aaliyah was a trendsetter. There aren’t many R&B singers out today who can say they weren’t influenced by her style in some way. While in pretty much every Aaliyah slayed the choreography, “Try Again” is a fan fave. R.I.P. Babygirl.
Is there anything Missy can’t do? She dances, sings, write songs, and produces hits. This multitalented artist is one of the dopest to ever do it. While she has a plethora of dope videos to choose from, “Work It” is definitely one of the top 5 in her catalog.
Teyana is probably one of the most underrated artists out there. She sings and dances and is one of the most talented R&B entertainers out there. Her performance in “Fade to Fit” is definitely one performance that solidified her as one of the best to ever do it!
Now, y’all knew Beyoncé was going to be on this list. Like her not, you can’t deny the talent.
So, I can pretty much guarantee that everyone on this list has been inspired by the uber-talented Ms. Jackson. She’s pretty much a living legend.
While J Lo is not primarily an R&B singer, since her days as a “Fly Girl” she’s definitely been a dancer with roots in hip-hop & R&B.
