Nice.

[quote comment="95122"]Vocally Beyonce is dope. She's not an all day Power Belter, But she does have power, range, & versitlity. She can do everything, uptempos, ballads, mids, pop, R&B, you name, she's one of the most versitile artist we have.[/quote "She can do everything, uptempos, ballads, mids, pop, R&B, you name, she's one of the most versitile artist we have"???? Well um In R&B and Pop music you have uptempos, ballads, mids, etc...so you weren't really saying a whole lot there; Musically versatile to me would be someone that now only encompasses Pop and R$B but also, Jazz, Classical and Soul,etc to me Beyonce has only accomplished maybe 2 genres out of the 5 I have listed, she is a force to be reckoned with be she still has a long way to go especially in the versatility department, to me all of her CD's & Destiny Child CD's all have the same sound, no versatility there? Now Aretha & Chaka have versatility, both of these ladies have proven they can do R&B, Soul, Pop, Jazz and Classical. Oh and as for which track I liked the best HANDS DOWN JENNIFER HUNSON AKA JHUD "SPOT LIGHT" MOST DEFINITELY. I love me some Beyonce but the JHud track is much better.

J. HUDS SONG STRAIGHT DID

J. HUDS SONG STRAIGHT DID BEYONCES...IT KILLED HER SONG I KNOW THE SONGS WERE LEAKED BUT WHY DO J.HUDS SONG SOUND BETTER THAN BEYONCE'S IF BOTH WERE LEAKED AND PLACED ON THE SAME WEBSITE...THAT RIGHT THERE SHOWS THAT BEYONCE NEEDS A LITTLE MORE WORK...HER VOICE SOUNDS WEIRD AND EVERYTHING ELSE...J.HUD SOUNDS LIKE ITS READY TO PUT ON RADIO AND EVERYTHING ELSE...ALSO IT SHOWS THAT BEYONCE CANT SING INSIDE A STUDIO PERFECTLY WITHOUT USING ALL THE AVAILABLE ELECTRONICS...SHE CAN SING LIVE BUT NOT IN THE STUDIO BASICALLY IS WHAT IM TYRIN' TO SAY...SO... J HUDS SONG BEAT BEYONCE'S...(on the low i heard she made a s*x tape last year with Jay-z...just look on YOUTUBE even though i didnt look yet and i wont but still look...because i saw one picture but it was very blurry on goolge images)

Let me start of by syaing i

Let me start of by syaing i luv theybf! Anywayz, i don't know why all u people r sitting here ripping of b or jhud. Both r great artist in their own respects. I luv b's song, her voice sounds powerful and raw. So what if it is about jayz or not, its her business, he her man! Second, jhud did get a little more publicity being in dreamgirls w/ b , probably a liitle more than she would've if b wasn't in the movie. But, there's no denying that she can sing. She has one of the strongests and most powerful voices out there. It's one thing to have ur opinion on their music, but its another thing to sit there & hate on their sucess. Shot, I wish i could sing like anyone of them. I love b and alot of her music, though sometimes i do feel she gets a little too much publicity, but hey so do so many other celebs out there. Just let them do their jobs, if u don't like the music then don't listen to it. Don't b sitting there hatin' on their success, go out there and get your own.

I think a lot of you haters

I think a lot of you haters should really look deep down and realize why you seem to dislike such a talented, classy performer. Is it your own insecurities and what you aspire to be? This girl puts her all in what she does, works hard, isn't sleazy, didn't shoot her best friend and get sentenced to prison, hasn't entered into any rehabs, doesn't whore herself around, stayed in a relationship with ONE man for years. Are you haters mad cause she DOESN'T put herself out like that? It kills me when some folks are so passionate with hate with someone like Beyonce, who haven't done a damn thing to you. I guess that's the way of the world....keep doing your thing Bee! And you too J-HUD(haters scapegoat).

[quote comment="95211"]Bey,

[quote comment="95211"]Bey, has the right formula for success and she has implemented it well. She sings, dances and she is easy on the eyes, but there's more, she has that "it" factor ( whatever that is) that people gravitate to. She is that girl. There are other women who sing, dance and are pretty, but still have'nt or can'nt obtain the success and popularity that Bey has............that's what makes her unique.[/quote] i agree..

Love ya BB guns, butuhrah

Love ya BB guns, butuhrah this song has gotchu looking kinna crazy right now... I mean you're not off key or anything but the word irrelevant comes to mind as I try to sum it up...Video assistance is a must!!! Let's just say that this "unauthorized leak" is a rough draft that needs to re-done before it's handed in for grading.. J-HUD's song is just better period! The strength of her style comes across effortlessly.. The pic is FAB! and this is only her first CD... *whistles annoyingly* as I remember the acclaim she received for her first movie effort.. GOOD JOB J!!!

Both songs are .... okay. I

Both songs are .... okay. I wouldn't buy an album for neither of them but I wouldn't turn the radio station if they came on. I am glad that they both seem to try different things with their voices. They both also seem to work hard putting their time and lives to good use

There's room for all types of talent in the music industry. I'm glad all the vocalist don't sound the same, how boring would that be? I can appreciate the uniqueness in each artist. There are some that I favor more but can't we appreciate one atist without tearing down another?

Beyonce and jennifer Hudson

Beyonce and jennifer Hudson are friends, she was even invited to Beyonce's wedding. they are both talented within their own right! they are like night and day, you just can't compare them two. I love the new song,beyonce sings it well, her music has really matured! I love jen's strong voice! makes me want to scream Amen!

I find it sad that people are

I find it sad that people are arguing over the internet about people they do not know in person. You may look into these people's lives but at the end of the day, you do NOT know them lmfao. Stop hiding behind computers all day talking about people and defending someone that may never defend you! you either like it or you dont. And please stop getting mad at individuals for their own opinions! That's why it is an opinion! Both songs are good to me. Both artists are great in their own respects to me.

I was afriad that Jennifer

I was afriad that Jennifer was going to be stuck in that "soundtrack" style but this song proves me WRONG! I LOVE IT! I'm not diggin' B's song though. It started out ok but went down hill from there. It turned into a well a Beyonce song and I'm so tired of her entire sound. But it's Beyonce and it will sell because it's her.
MrStyle's picture

I don't like either. they are

I don't like either. they are both wack for two extremely different reasons, lets start with my girl J Hud, can you say BORING SONG! nothing about the song stands out, even though her vocals are 10 times better than Beyonce's she lacks the flair (engineering) that Beyonce's production team provides. HOWEVER, Beyonce's song was trash to me, the words soubd like her nephew wrote it. Its extremely overproduced and makes no real statement. She needs to leave that music to people who need it, and just sing soft and without all the ad libs, screaming, effects, and background vocals.
Jamela Bullock's picture

oh, and the theme for J's

oh, and the theme for J's song is much better thought out! what exactly is it that B is singing about..she sounds confused or maybe i can't hear right behind all her vocal acrobatics
Ticamorena's picture

I think both songs are

I think both songs are aright, B's sounds kinda...amateurish :s she doesn't do emotional songs as well as she does feel good funky, full of attitude party songs- she should leave the emotional drama to the likes of toni braxton J's sounds like a Gloria Gaynor track, dunno why...it's a nice track though, but she could have put a little more sauce into it..
Ticamorena's picture

Beyonce's song sounds like a

Beyonce's song sounds like a cross between one republics' song and Ciara's "like a boy". The only thing I like about the song is that Beyonce sounds different, she's not as pitchy, it's much lower-I like that.

I totally AGREE! That is the

I totally AGREE! That is the exact same track from "I apologize" by One Republic. I didn't like Beyonce's song but once again, this is a leaked track...so it kinda doesn't count unless she drops it as a single.

Beyonce sounds weird but I like the message in the song, she could have done better, maybe it's just to create sum buzz for her upcomming album. Jhud song is nice I love how she controls her voice because we all know the chick can blow. I have to hear the songs some more for them to become my new ish though.

[/quote] Funny she is more

[/quote] Funny she is more successful than all the singers you named combined. Whitney and the others are not the best singers in the world. Theres always someone who is better. And its no surprise you got that comment from her dad off mediatakeout who lies and makes up stories all the time. Beyonce has something that none of the other singers have. Thats passion and drive to succeed. She loves what she does and she deserves all her success. People love her voice which is why she is successful. People have a right to like her. Most people do. You dont go by comments on blogs. Most people commenting on here probable have one of her c.ds.[/quote] Actually, Mariah Carey is the number one selling female artist of all time, and she's still selling albums, so I doubt Bey will ever be taking that title. On the real, I think people love Beyonce b/c she KILLS her live performances. She leaves it all on the stage. Very charismatic. That's why I dig her. When I hear Beyonce is gonna be on an awards show, I'm the first one in my house at that TV! But to compare her to Whitney and Mariah...naw...those women are ICONS, and simply put, Beyonce is out of her league. That being said though, I think she dominates the current realm of Hip-Pop. She's rules in that land. But on the strength of pure vocal ability & range, if we're talking about entire bodies of work, Bey can't touch Mariah or Whitney. Realistically, if it wasn't for them, there'd be no Bey. I don't think she's set a mark that hasn't already been defined by somebody else. But that doesn't take away from her success either. I guess everybody's gotta be compared to somebody, huh?

Vocally Beyonce is dope.

Vocally Beyonce is dope. She's not an all day Power Belter, But she does have power, range, & versitlity. She can do everything, uptempos, ballads, mids, pop, R&B, you name, she's one of the most versitile artist we have.

[quote comment="95071"][quote

[quote comment="95071"][quote comment="95013"]Wow!! This is my first time posting on this site, and I cannot believe people are getting this worked up over people they don't even know. I personally don't like either of the songs. I do think Beyonce needs to take a break because it does appear that every time someone comes out with something- here she comes. People are right, Kelly, Michelle, Letoya and now Jennifer. The girl is a star and she doesn't have to do things like that...it's almost sickening. As for Jennifer, the girl has made history herself- winning an Oscar is not an easy thing to do and she WILL be commended for the rest of her life for that feat alone, if she doesn't do anything else. **disclaimer** This is my OPINION- no need to call me names and reply because u won't get a response.[/quote] This is how it is here gurl.....lol These stans get reaaaalllll sensitive when folks start talking about their gurl, bey. But i agree w/ you. Its part of the reason i can't take beyonce. They act like its gonna hurt her, if she takes a lil break. And the coincidences of leaking tracks anytime another female artist, who may be competition, puts out single. I'm not that old, but it seems like in every error, there was someone who had another great artist, diana, aretha, patti....... thats not happening it here.[/quote] so right on! I'm somewhat of a beyonce fan (meaning i own at least one of her albums) and i have to say, while she has a nice voice, she has to credit her success to the fact that she doesn't have too much competition. and real talk, i'm pretty sure that that's not a coincidence. her management has already unveiled their greasiness with the way that they handled destiny's child.
Prieta's picture

yes yes yes….i’ve been trying

yes yes yes….i’ve been trying to tell people that, but you know how the stans how are. She’s good at what she does, but voice wise….nooo Not even close. All the people you mentioned above and i could probably add a few, but i won’t…..have amazing voices. This song exposes her weak areas vocally in some parts...they shouldn't have released it like this or perhaps now they are trying to get the stans to see she's human which means not perfect and most notably a hard worker rather than the prior God's Gift Super Human in all category marketing they were doing before..talking about opera training blah blah blah...like i said, the song has potential but definitely needs more production and mixing. JHUD's..its okay, Im about to listen to it again...the first time it was catch and easy on the ears but like most saying not really vocally challenging but luther used to have a lotof bumpy grooves too...not that i am saying she is a luther, im NOT im just saying in terms of song choice/style
B's picture

lol! i <3 this site!! B's is

lol! i <3 this site!! B's is hot (surprised she could admit a mistake tho) I like J-hud's one aswell The situation is funny. But if you think of the positive side, B is actually giving J's song some publicity. I wouldn't have listened to it if there wasn't some 'drama' going on. Thanks Natasha
