The second most successful R&B male artist?

I wonder if it's kinda safe to say that during the '60s, besides James Brown, on the R&B charts as far as male performers go, that no one else ruled those charts as much as Marvin did in between 1962 and 1969? I mean I know people hardly talk about it now because it was like three generations ago or something but I was always amazed at how many singles Motown released from Marvin that almost went to the top 40 on the R&B chart after its release. The only other R&B legends who accomplished this was James Brown and Aretha Franklin (later on in the '60s).
