Why is Madonna more respected than Mariah?

Recommended Posts

Mariah can sing better than Madonna did when they were both younger but Madonna is more respected as a song writer when she was younger?

 

Ray Of Light recieved better reviews than any Mariah album.

Because Madonna was a real trend-setter with amazing performances, albums and songs. A truly global artist with insane success in every country you can imagine. Her tours alone are proof of that, 3-4 decades into her career and millions of people attend them because she's been that impactful. She started as a fairly basic pop star music-wise and transcended herself into a respected musician with albums that were meticulously crafted yet different from each other, keeping herself interesting and exciting throughout the years.

Mariah has (had?) an amazing voice and some good albums but she hardly evolved in any way.

Because you need more than vocal capabilities to make you an interesting artist and that's all that Mariah ever had.

Mariah's diva reputation has always overshadowed the fact that she's a real musician, she understands music, can write songs, produce them and ofcourse sing.

Although I love them both, Madonna is much riskier and more provocative than Mariah.

Mariah is probably the best pop vocalist of all time, but Madonna is actually a creative visionary and pushed boundaries in pop music that no female before her had ever pushed. that's why she gets more respect as a artist while Mariah gets more respect as a musician lj1

Other than the fact that both are incredibly successful, what makes them comparable? They are not similar in any other way. Not even the same genre.

She does though lol. Madonna makes great music but being a talented vocalist is like the easiest way to get respect and acclaim from the GP. when people think of Madonna they think about the boundaries she pushed and her creativity, but when they think of Mariah they think about her musical talent and her voice. Both of them are two of the most highly respected female pop musicians of all time so it's not like it's a competition or anything xtina11

Since when is vocal capability all Mariah has?. She can write and produce music. Also singing holds A LOT of aristic value. Mariah and Madonna are acclaimed in different fields of the music world. Madonna getting the edge in terms of writing and Mariah the edge in singing.

So is Mariah's music. I didn't know that some people held the ultimate truth about what is or isn't good.

Mariah has done very well for herself, as the 3 best selling female globally. She is well known globally as one of the greatest vocalists of all time. One of the most acclaimed vocalists of all time, that is a form of artistic acclaim that is just as important as any other form of artistic acclaim. And there is never going to be a "Had" when we talk about a vocalist like Mariah. Because a gift like that will never be forgotten. It's timeless. Mariah evolved a lot, comparing her early days as a girl next door to the sex bomb R&B-Hip-Hop diva that followed. The change was big. Mariah found her lane in 1997. There is nothing wrong with having a clear idea of the type of music that you want to make. And even then, she still found time and place to sing pop, Gospel, Latin influenced music, etc on her albums. She has covered a very good amount of genres.

Ignorance.

She started out as RnB/AC and then changed her genre to Hip Hop/RnB.

 

How is that not evolving? um2
