Former R&B Stars That Are Now Instagram Famous

By Christopher Rosa 

Instagram works wonders, people. It can turn our favorite singers from the late ’90s and early 2000s into superstars all over again. Don’t believe us? Check out these nine former R&B stars who now rule Instagram. From va-va-voom bikini bods (hey, Ashanti) to rock-hard pecs (yes, you Craig David) these singers are setting the web on fire with their glorious #grams.

Now, we’re not saying these singers are completely irrelevant sans Instagram (or any social media for that matter). Many of the crooners have released worthwhile music or other cool projects in the past few years; however, they haven’t reached the fever pitch of their earlier works.

That’s where Instagram comes in. The photo-sharing platform has helped these stars break into the mainstream again, and we couldn’t be more thankful.
