Rell Gaddis, known by his stage name Rell, is an American R&B singer. He was the first male R&B singer signed to Roc-A-Fella Records, where he recorded with artists such as Kanye West, Jay-Z, Consequence, and Young Gunz.

Rell grew up in Bowman, South Carolina, and is a former South Carolina State pre-med student. After signing with Roc-A-Fella, Rell got his break in 1998, appearing in Jay-Z's rap cult flick Streets Is Watching and contributing the club banger "Love for Free" to the movie's soundtrack. Rell went on to sing hooks for nearly every Roc-a-Fella MC since, including Jay-Z's "It's Obvious" and Freeway's "Victim of the Ghetto", and appearing on "The Message" featuring Mary J. Blige, from Dr. Dre's Chronic 2001.

Rell works frequently with Latin reggaeton artist Don Omar and, in 2007, appeared on Omar's compilation album El Pentágono as well as Zion's The Perfect Melody. Rell wrote the title track for Usher's 2008 album Here I Stand. Also in 2008, Rell and Nate Pitts started the independent record label Right Arm Music Group, which is the home for producers Dale Williams, Shabbykat Production and Dark Sun Production.
In 2009, Rell teamed with Tre Williams to form The Revelations. They released their debut album, The Bleeding Edge, on October 6, 2009
