Bee's song clearly has not

Bee's song clearly has not been completed. She is yelling at times and when she hits that one note I cringed. This is like what Deja Vu sounded to me when it first came out, nothing but NOISE. But nonetheless, once it's completed digitally I think it'll grow on me. I still love her though. ++++++++++++++++++++++ Like the JHud song. It was cool and mellow. Go Jenn!!! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++ And these comments were kinda outrageous. Does there have to be sooo much bickering on this damn blog?? Everyone is entitled to their own freakin opinions. Geezzzzzz!!!

I don't like either song.

I don't like either song. J-Hud is going to be hard to figure out and market because she really has no distinct style, even though she's so talented. Bey is trying something new that doesn't fit her. I agree it's the answer to Jay's Lost Ones, but it's dragging and she doesn't sound sincere. She sounds like she knows this style doesn't fit her but she's doing it anyway. And I agree it sounds like Timbo's Apologize (only I actually like Apologize).

Beyonce is just an

Beyonce is just an oversexualized image that sells things. It's not J-Hud's fault that she refuses to shake it to the left in order to sell a phone or a can of soda. At the end of the day, it all comes down to vocal ability.

[quote comment="95000"]Why

[quote comment="95000"]Why try to compare B and Jen? You can't B is a pop star. And Jen is the lady from the church with the nice voice , not the best voice , but the nice voice, who crossed over. And now she is out of her league. She can win every award but nan person is gonna drink pepsi, buy jeans, a fill up madison square for no damn miss Jennifer really not that cute Hudson![/quote] Yeah but I haven't heard B or anyone else nail "Your gonna Love Me" beside JHud and Jennifer Holiday.

Bey's track has potential -

Bey's track has potential - it is clearly a rough copy - not mixed down to radio ready quality. But she sounds like she's yelling...and whining... J-Hud - great track...probably form the SATC soundtrack

Jen Hud is so WACK! she

Jen Hud is so WACK! she sounds right out the church on the corner of fulton and greene. She is so not popular culture VERY boring. The chick is out of her lane. Beyonce, I give her a B on that one . Hands down she's a better entertainer etc than Jennifer, no compare!
Pink Wall Street's picture

Don't like B's song AT ALL-

Don't like B's song AT ALL- too much screaming makes it hard to listen to, not pleasurable, shouldn't have to work that hard to try to like a song so no. J's song is ok, doesn't really highlight her voice's strenghts - I like to hear her sing more soulful music like Aretha.

I'm gonna need Jennifer to

I'm gonna need Jennifer to start over on this track and try again...I found it incredibly boring. I love Beyonce's leak and I'm using the term leak because it's not a song yet because you can tell it hasn't been mastered--the "song" is still in its beginning stages.

I love Jennifer's song, I

I love Jennifer's song, I loved that she controlled her voice a whole lot, her voice has indeed matured.. Patiently waiting for her CD to hit the stores.. I dont know.. I commend Beyonce for trying somthing different a mix of garage, rock and Hiphop but there is somthing that is not there for me, it sounds like she is alomost there but not there yet. I do like the song though . In my opinion and it is my opinion, I think she should have gone a lil bit softer on this one...hummm

I love beyonces song!Her new album will be the best!Jennifers song...i dont like it

dang,....y'all was goin at

dang,....y'all was goin at it, and i missed it.....lol anyhoo, i think the beyonce song sounds raw cuz its not the official version. Its not done....but now we know what she sounds like raw. I was once argued w/ folks in here about her voice, so ain't goin there today. And the beyonce song does't move me, like so many of em. like some one said, i you listen to her songs, but they don't move you. thats beyonce to me.

Why are people getting so

Why are people getting so emotional? I am not so keen on Beyonce's song... it simply isn't her best work. I am a Beyonce fan and have all her albums, but I think even her most ardent fans would find it difficult to compare this song to'Crazy In Love', 'Me Myself & I' and 'Suga Mama' Now THEY are great Beyonce songs and the vocals are sublime. This new song doesn't seem quite ready, sounds quite tinny to be honest. Meanwhile, I really do like the new Jennifer Hudson song-it's polished and catchy- a good job. She is doing well and congratulations to her. However, I see no reason for this to turn into bitter rivalry. Everyone should be happy that these two black women are doing sterling work in a very unforgiving and ultra-competitive industry.

LOL U Beyonce maniacs really

LOL U Beyonce maniacs really amaze me. Y do y'all constantly compare ur girl to singers who are just starting out??? This cd is JHud's first effort. Let her do her thing. Rihanna had just come out when y'all were comparing her to Beyonce. Y'all need to stop bcuz u are hurting more than ure helping. Y dont u compare her to other accomplished artists like Alicia Keys? or Mary J? Isn't she as big as them? Just let it go peoples.

Love me some Beyonce, but

Love me some Beyonce, but Ihate the song. However, I do love the lyrics. Doubt it was written for us. I think I will lilke the mastered version though. Once they tweak it, it'll be a smash. I'm a lyric girl, so I'll give it another go. ----------------------------------------- As for J. Hud, she KILLLLLLLLEEEDDDDD it! I think she's found her niche. I love the Disco sound to it. Again, great lyrics. I would be dancing around the house on Saturday morning listening to this track. Kuddos to J. Hud!

I find it refreshing that

I find it refreshing that people still coin the term "hater" or "hate" when in fact it is themselves who are bored by their own lives, bored to the point where they have to protect and stand up for an entertainer who doesn't even know they exist, yet alone cares or give 2 cents about them. Aghhh, just point those fingers at those reflections of yourselves and coin another term: "psychotic worshiper". There ya go.

I thought I was the only intelligent person on here that realized this Bey song was clearly not meant for our ears just yet. It has yet to be mastered...thats why it sounds like "its not complete". I swear some people try so hard to hate on her that they neglect the obvious. I'm sure they will be the chicks in the car singing along when this song comes out officially.

Beyonce is,hans down,the most

Beyonce is,hans down,the most selfish chick in the industry.she's so scared to be forgotten that she'll do a-n-y-t-h-i-n-g to stop someone else from shining.I used to like her,I really did,but she lost me as a fan after all those Hudson-Oscar comments she made.it is possible to stay on top and let other shine for a while.this song is aight though,nothing special.

[quote comment="94878"][quote comment="94871"][quote comment="94868"][quote comment="94863"][quote comment="94856"]Please if anything Bey song leaking will help Jhud. We all know she rose to fame b/c of Bey comparisons and even now the only time she gets buzz is when Bey is involved. I wouldnt be surprised if Jhud people leaked her song so she can continue to ride Bey fame. Jhud song sucks I almost fell asleep. Bey is killing it with the vocals and the emotion she put into her song.[/quote] Now u trippin, Jennifer Hudson is a star in her own right. She got an oscar, not Beyonce. She's in the sex in the city movie, not BEYONCE like she wanted to as I heard. I love Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson is talented but you cannot compare the two. Two different girls, two different musicians, two different actors. C'mon people, let them LIVE![/quote] What's your point? Bey has 10 grammy's not JENNIFER. Bey is playing Etta James while Jennifer is playing somebody assistant. Beyonce has made history several times and sold millions of albums not jennifer so what's your point? It's a fact that Jennifer rode off Beyonce fame b/c of comparisons. Same thing with Rihanna. So I stand by what I said.[/quote] My point is that its sad you compare two different people. Now I understand Rihanna because people do compare those two a lot but not Jennifer Hudson and so what if shes playing someone assistant? The point is Beyonce wanted the role and she didn't get it. They are both talented women and nobody is riding off nobody in this case cause J Hud holds her own. Drop it. Smh[/quote] SMH People get compared all the time I suggest you get used to it. You sound naive to be believing RUMORS. That was a rumor started by mediafakeout. Bey never wanted a part in Sex and the city. I deal with FACTS not rumors sorry so your point on that is irrelevant. And playing the legendary Etta James is a much better deal I'm sorry. That's beside the point. Its a fact that Jennifer gets the most buzz when Beyonce name is involved.Fact. Just take this post for example. Before this nobody was even talking about Jennifer meanwhile Beyonce name is brought up on every post. But whatever my point stands and we can agree to disagree.[/quote] I think the better deal is being in the movie that is the most successful in the theaters, and I'm thinking that the long awaited Sex and the City is going to KILL the movie about Cadillac Records, despite Beyonce portraying Etta James. I don't really like either song, but you must admit that Jennifer has a beautiful voice.

Now that I listened, I like Bey's song, vocals and all. Oh, and to clarify something for you non-Beyonce fans(I'm one too, so don't even start with the "stan" shit) as well as you, Natasha...Bey's song leaked YESTERDAY before J. Hud's. So much for that "Bey's stealing the spotlight from her peers again" theory!
