    Definitely both, only those who know a few of his hits, and never really listened to his albums don't think he is vocally great, I mean by 1995 he had shown how great he was vocally with songs like Bump and Grind, Slow Dance, Trade in my life etc and also written for Michael Jackson.

    although I think he known for both, I think he's known a bit more for his writing and producing, especially considering how much he's done for other artists

    I think its his talent of songwriting. we've heard ppl say they were envious of his writing ability moreso the singing. now recently ppl are REALLY noticing & respecting his voice more
