YK Osiris Denies Crowning Himself King Of R&B, Puts Usher Over R. Kelly

For a long time, R. Kelly has been widely regarded as the King of R&B until when his controversial escapades started surfacing which made many people strip him off the title.

YK Osiris recently shared his thoughts on who he thinks deserves the moniker King of R&B, opting to give the title to Usher over R. Kelly.

During a new interview with VladTV, the Florida native spoke about his Kehlani feature on “Ride,” taken from his King of R&B EP released in 2021. Osiris made it clear he doesn’t consider himself the King of R&B and revealed Def Jam picked the album title as a marketing ploy.

Vlad then asked Osiris who’s deserving of the title, and he said Usher. The show host then threw R. Kelly’s name in the mix, but YK stood firm in his selection.

“I love Usher,” YK said. “R. Kelly, he’s one of the greatest. I like Usher. It’s just certain things like R. Kelly is fire, but there’s just certain things that turns me off a little bit. Like you can be great all you want to, it just certain things you gotta uphold. It’s cool; I just love Usher. Usher is that n-gga. R. Kelly, I don’t know, did a lot of things that just doesn’t make sense.”

YK said something entirely different in 2019 during an interview with Sway Calloway where he gave Chris Brown the title and threw a slight jab at Atlanta native Jacquees, who claimed he was the king of the genre and even named his second studio album as such.

“Chris Brown, he’s the king, fa sho,” Osiris said. “But you gotta understand, in this generation, ain’t a lot of singers. Jacquees, you feel me, I don’t think he really even mess with me like that. Not music-wise. Now vocals, yeah, he got it. But like music? Nah, fa sho.”
