Music Talks: Choice Top 7 British Soul Singers

7. Corrine Bailey Rae
You might have heard her soulful voice with her big hit “Put Your Records On”, a song which takes you to reminisce of the good old days, but she had some other soulful songs on her records.

6. Paloma Faith
She is one of the longest female soul singers in UK and had multiple platinum albums. She’s still around and releasing music. Her recent hit album was “A Perfect Contradiction” which was already 2x platinum, and the number 6 hit “Only Love Can Hurt Like This”. Her voice is a classic soul with such power.

5. Duffy
Duffy quickly became successful with her debut. She was known for her top-selling album “Rockferry” and the number 1 single “Mercy”. However, her success stayed there as her succeeding releases failed to gain momentum. She also has a great voice, amd I can hear similarity with Paloma Faith.

4. Leona Lewis
She rose to success through winning “X-Factor UK”. Sje quickly achieved a number 1 album with “Spirit” and number 1 single “Bleeding Love”. But her popularity has gone down low. But she is one of the best voices. If only she did a music like other soul singers did, she might still be around and relevant.

3. Joss Stone
She was known for her hit albums “Soul Sessions” and “Mind Body and Soul” which has gone multi-platinums. Her voice is very soulful which hits the heart when you hear her voice.

2. Amy Winehouse
She has one of the best voices, unfortunately, she was gone too soon. Her album “Back to Black” has been huge and one of the biggest selling album during the second half of 2000’s.¬† Her voice is soulful and powerful and was like taking you anywhere.

1. Adele
She can be the voice of her time, and it translates to huge album sales. She is currently the biggest selling singer after albums “21” and “25”. Her voice even slips through your heart as you can feel what she feels when singing and she even tells a story while signing.
