    If Justin Timberlake was Black with everything else the same, he'd probably be Chris Brown level...maybe a little higher because he wouldn't have all the negative publicity surrounding him.

    JT is above average talent wise.His last album made some 🤬 step their game up (cough cough) Usher

    Still much respect to Jamar though

    I think his music and even his stuff with NSYNC was pretty damn good sonically... I think if he were black he would have been trapped by his genre and not able to be as pop as he was (black folks seem to not challenge genre barriers as much)

    He did have a bit of R&B/Soul to him, but mostly he was pop through and through imo

    If anything though i'd agree with the Usher comparison, but then JT is a little bit more likable as a person. I think the limits black artist have are ones we put on ourselves because we dont want to be looked at as sell outs or white washed.

    White folks make whatever they want and call it music

    After watching the video...I think Usher is way closer to Michael Jackson than Chris Brown is

    Like @dalyricalbandit said, I think the only difference is if JT was say, Usher, and was involved in that Superbowl 🤬 , his career would've been over. That's the perk that being White afforded him. Other than that, hard to hate on dude. As far as R&B...who 🤬 wit JT right now? Trey Songz? Chris Brown? Usher? Nah. Robin Thicke makes some dope 🤬 , but dude can't perform.

    Probably my fav JT performance...



    Honestly, the only 🤬 🤬 with JT right now is Bruno Mars, and I don't even know what he is? Hispanic Indian?

    lmao @ 'as far as R&B who 🤬 with JT right now'


    only 🤬 🤬 would say some 🤬 like that. If you woulda said pop music i would agree, and the bruno mars comparison is apt, but youre honestly calling JT the best R&B artist out right now when dangelo dropped what is probably the best album by a black musician in the last 2 or 3 years or so?

    I love what JT has done with his career and all but the 🤬 is a notch below usher and Bruno Mars ain't better than JT. Come on now, there's a difference between people having a right to their opinion and getting a little ridiculous.

    Im wont but some would say JT has hits to match.

    My point was just that currently in the music game, JT is the better artist
