We all have them: singers whom we love, but whom others either don't know about or don't care for. Some artists, despite being bright, creative, talented and many other positives, just don't get the love or recognition that they deserve from the masses. And we all know that commercial success doesn't necessarily equal quality work, so with that in mind, this list is dedicated to the underappreciated R&B/Soul artists
like Meshell Ndegeocello
, Dave Hollister
, Lizz Wright
, Rahsaan Patterson
and others who may not be big on the charts, but definitely are in our hearts.
