Whitney Houston is a classic and has some great songs too. Most of the rest just plain suck IMO.

I was going Whitney, Mariah, or Aretha, since I don't like most of them. But Mariah Carey has a sweet voice. But like, in my list of favorite artists she's like #86. Haha, I don't like R&B much.

So like, all of these 'divas' I pretty much don't care about. :3

I'm glad you made this before I did, Uomo. It played down my Obsession for Beyoncé (the O in Obsession is a hint, coming to theaters in Feb XD).

Anyway, everyone knows who I like. XF Listen to Beyoncé's album songs, it showcases her real talent in sAnging.

And Beyoncé is from Houston too. That is all. :p

Yes, yes, a soul/R&B gerne thread! My favorite music gerne. I thought most people on this forum hate R&B. For the female artists, it is very hard to decide. I will probley go with Alicia Keys or Mariah Carey. Fergie's, and Rihanna's main music gerne is considered "pop" by the way. I like Fergie better than Rihanna.

Hmm.... Mariah Carey or Alicia Keys.

Fergie and Rihanna, plus lots of Beyonce is Pop with a little R&B, that's just the way it is. R&B is Rhythm and Blues, I don't see much of that in any of their Music. =P

I choose Rihanna, she's got more talent then all of the choices put togethor.

That is all :p

[Even though I chose her, my actual choices for R&B singers are Estelle, Janet, and Mariah.]

Actually, what Beyoncé puts out as singles and commercial is pop. Since she releases 3 pop/up-tempo singles every album, the fourth single is usually a slow song, as the rest of her songs. Listen to her album tracks, they're ALL R&B. Rihanna's is more pop. Plus, she can't sing. I find it disappointing when artists have to resort to the talkbox. =/ But, at least she's a better singer than Britney. :p

Uh Rihanna and Britney sing waaaay better tham Beyonce. =P Beyonce is a terrible, non-catchy singer. Take A Bow may have been low key, kinda talking, but it is better than anything Beyonce has done.

More people like Britney, sorry, D= That's just the way it is, more people like Britney than pretty much every other female artist. Sales-wise she sold quite a bit of albums. More than Beyonce =P

Beyonce's new songs can't even hold a stable spot on the charts now a days. They reach #5 then drop to #62, where as Rihanna starts at #62, and raises all the way to #1, and she stays there. ;p

Soda, I understand how you feel. But Britney and Rihanna sing better than Beyoncé? No, buddy, no. I'm going to touch everything you've said.

Numbers don't show talent, Soda, Grammys and other awards do. Something Britney has failed to do is win a Grammy, after 4 albums. And Rihanna as well, after 3. As I've told you before, Beyoncé's debut album won her 5 Grammys in one night. Tying the record with Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill and Amy Winehouse.

If you want to know about album sales, let's try their latest album releases. Rihanna's singles are good, but that doesn't prove she knows how to sing. Britney's last album, Blackout (how appropiate) came out in 2006, as Beyoncé's B'Day (she named it because she released it on her birthday. I hear Britney's doing the same thing this year. Hmm.) Beyonce's album went triple platinum, meaning 3 million+ copies. Britney's didn't even go platinum, that's a shame for Britney! REAL shame, Britney's all about numbers. And get this, it didn't debut at #1, it debut at number 2! Beyoncé's debut with 500,000 copies certifying Gold as debut, at number 1. She's sold what Britney's Blackout sold, TOTAL, in 2 weeks. Wow.

People will listen to what's on the radio. That's why Beyoncé brings her pop as singles and radio play, cause it's what people enjoy, and what people will buy.

Britney has sold more than Beyoncé because INDIVIDUALLY (meaning Beyonce WITHOUT Destiny's Child) she has been on longer than her.

And what do you mean Beyoncés new songs? She hasn't released a single in over a year. You might THINK they were new, but that just means how much airplay they have.

And as far as singing. Beyoncé is compared to Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera. Rihanna and Britney are compared to one another, along with Jigglypuff and William Hung.

Okay, your turn, Soda...go!
