Michael Jackson was, unarguably, the most influential pop star of his generation and can be credited with inspiring the careers of many R&B artists. While the world mourns, musicians continue to express their love for the legend.

"I am devastated as I'm certain many people around the world are as well. We have lost a true Genius in Music and one of the greatest influences in entertainment," '90s singer Al B. Sure told the BoomBox.

"Thank you Michael Jackson for teaching us about "Swagger" before the term was even made popular. I would personally like to say, thank you for being the reason why music felt organic and for truly being the first man to "walk on the moon" on earth!"

My condolences to the Jackson Family. Thank you for sharing your son, your brother, your father, your friend & the Icon with me and the rest of world!"
