R&B singer Brian McKnight has suggested that Jay-Z's music doesn't lend itself to romance.

In an interview with The AP, the 'Back At One' musician insisted that he has remained a commercially viable artist for nearly two decades because he's been able to appeal to his fans' romantic desires.

"My voice lends itself to singing a slower song," McKnight said. "I still believe when you want to get close to someone, it's my type of music you put on."

The star continued: "I doubt if they're listening to Jay-Z at that moment - not that there's anything wrong with Jay-Z. He's great."

In spite of the sensual subject matter in many of his songs, McKnight readily admits that he is not romantic when it comes to his own love life.

He explained: "Unfortunately, I am the least romantic man ever… I'm a guy's guy. But I'm not sure most women would want that 'romantic' person 24 hours a day anyway. Too much of that would probably not be a good thing."

Since releasing his self-titled debut LP in 1992, McKnight has notched three platinum-selling albums and five US top 20 singles.
