    • It’s a pity he never topped the Billboard 100. He had several no. 1 hits on the R&B chart.

      Looks like be came closest with “I Got You (I Feel Good)”, which peaked at no. 3. That really should have been a no. 1 on the Hot 100, just like was on the R&B chart. The same should have been the case for classics like “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag” and “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World”, IMHO!
