The biggest selling female singers can’t sing, why?

Recommended Posts

Why do we allow people who can’t fulfill the basic description for their job title succeed? 

Madonna and Rihanna are the two highest certified female artists, and neither can sing. Don’t need you to post receipts of Rihanna signing Love on the brain with her fingers doing yoga, or Madonna talksinging one her forgotten 80s ballads. 

They can’t sing, yet they sell millions. Does the GP Stan mediocrity? Are these a example of white and lightskin privilege? Had Madonna been black she wouldn’t have gotten where she was today. Had Rihanna been darkskin people wouldn’t have latched onto her like they do. Fact

Before you come for lightskin Black woman Mariah Carey, she can sing and she worked for fame. Before you claim Whitney had success, she had to promoted and used by a white man, and forced to make pop music that appealed to a white audience, as well as present herself in a “safe” way.

They make up for it with their visuals and performing styles. Specially Madonna. She truly excels at it.

I’m a Brain surgeon who can’t perform brain surgery, i make up for it by being charismatic and a pleasure to have in the surgery room.

I know you only said female, but with both males and females, some people prefer listening to music for the vocals, and some are more into the production and/or lyrics. Many of the most legendary artists like Madonna, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, and Billy Joel aren’t known for having 5 octaves or an incredible vocal range, but to deny their talent would be ludicrous. At the end of the day, they all still sing their lyrics, which means they are indeed singers.

Singers should be able to sing well. Is that hard to ask?

Yes. That works fine. jj2 But Madonna and Rihanna never claimed themselves to be powerhouse vocalists. Their strong points are in other areas of music.

No tea no shade, just lemonade, but It took them 30+ years to get wherever they are on this list. it only took rihanna 13 to be among them. clap3 and she's not even 30 yet. clap3 

As for madonna, she was an aggressive dominant top and topped them all. So both rih and madonna are winning.

I mean let's be honest. Madonna's ability to understand the market and her place in it was usually tactically on point. She knew how to work in an industry that changes so fast and easily forgets. She knew when to change to survive when things were going against her. Her ability to adapt is top level. Her transformation from Erotica era to Something To Remember and then to Ray of Light was an expert read of understanding the public's perception of her and how to rebound from that. The woman is a master of this. And it is one of the main reasons why she is such a legend and the queen of pop.

They all sing well and convey the emotion behind their lyrics, or else they would not be world renowned. Them not having a million octaves or being able to belt for 30 minutes straight just so a few gays can lose their minds over a diva on stage doesn’t take away from that

Not everyone needs to be a powerhouse vocalist or even be above par.

At the very end of the day, I just care if a voice is pleasant or not. And there are a lot of powerhouse vocalists whose voices aren't pleasant to me.

Of course. Because Lambs are deluded and Madonna fans are all objective.

Mariah Carey isnt black No 1 and 2 she had everything handed to her on a plate from Sony and Tommy. and 3 Rihannas performance of Love on the brain was amazing.

1 Mariah has black roots from her father's side.

2. Mariah worked hard for her career.

3. Mariah can still sing. 2092150964_misfitsbye.thumb.gif.53a7af81
