Beyonce ranked higher then Whitney and Mariah for best artist of all time? GTFOH


I was skimming through my social networks an stumbled on this nonsense. VH1 did a ranking for best artist of all time. I had been boycotting these rankings especially since that dance rank when they put Ciara at 25 (a blind man could see that was crazy) But I checked out the list and saw this fuckery


Confusing aint it. So I scroll down even more to see that Mariah is #94. Some things about this ranking just dont sit right with me. Now if this said of our generation now I would get it. But it says of ALL TIME. How can you put a entertainer above the two people that inspired her to even get in the game??? But for my readers that need the facts. I got you in a second.

The Facts:

MARIAH CAREY:
79 weeks combined at number one (Rank: 1)
18 number ones
6 number one albums
So
7 albums with more than 10 million in total worldwide sales
2 albums with more than 20 million in total worldwide sales
“Music Box” is the fifth most successful album to be released since its release in 1993.

  1. U know that that's some f*ckery!
    Not only that, look to any talent show from Apollo to X-Factor to American Idol-
    Whitney is the most covered artist- all the female contestants try to sing her songs. A few sing Mariah and very, very few try to sing Beyonce's songs.

    Mariah and Whitney have several classic songs that have last the test of time.
    Whitney- Greatest Love of All
    I will always love you, Saving all my love,
    Mariah- Hero
    Beyonce?

    Whitney is the most decorated female artists with over 400 awards
    Whitney is the female artist with the most AMAs - 22
    Whitney is the only female artist to get 8 BillBoard awards in one night
    Whitney was paid $10mil for a movie
    producer, model, singer, actress,

    Mariah,-actress, singer,writer, producer

    GTFOH is correct!

  2. We all know Whitney is better then Beyonce and Mariah, what a joke. I did not know Whitney accomplished so much with just a few albums, she is demographically the biggest selling female artist.

Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith (cover by @MattBloyd)

When ya new favorite voice covers one of ya favorite voices!!!! Thats exactly what happened when Matt Bloyd chose to cover Sam Smith's new song "Too Good At Goodbyes" it feels a lot warmer then the original that haunts us when Sam sings it. We love how Matt put his own  twist on it and showed off that killer range that made us a fan from the  first day we heard him. Here is what Matt had to say about choosing the cover I am a huge fan of Sam Smith's voice and his artistry. After a two year hiatus, Sam is back with "Too Good at Goodbyes" and I could not be more excited. He's truly an inspiration. When I heard this song I KNEW I had to cover it and got right on it. Hope you love my take on this JAM.

Artist to look out for: Jasmyne Hinson

The “entertainer bug” bit Jasmyne at the age of 2 when she sang her first solo in church. A couple years later, she was enrolled in performing arts school where the seed of her stage presence was planted. At the age of 15 the cultivation of her studio experience began at PARC studios with her first manager Dexter Redding, the son of the late Otis Redding. Throughout her high school years Jasmyne began to work with a diverse group of producers, engineers and writers. Honing in on her niche as an artist, most of her free time was spent in the studio. While adapting to their styles of working she added to her work ethic and accuracy in the studio. Upon graduating from high school she spent her undergraduate years as a Theater major learning and exploring the worlds of jazz and musical theatre. She then began singing professionally with a myriad of artists, bands and musicians. It was quite clear that Jasmyne Hinson is much more than a session singer or just a staple in the choir stand.
