Both of these superstar songbirds are scheduled for the Essence Music Fest in July. I soooooooo wish I could be there.
Who do you think will get the most love?

I don't know who will get more love at the Essence Awards, but Mary J. Blige gets more love from LoveFifteen! :hearts:

Mary J obviously!

I like MJB best, too. I wonder if there will be behind the scenes backbiting?

between Mary and Beyoncé?

I remember watching an interview with Mary J on MTVBase and she said Beyoncé was the only young solo female she saw that had something special and who impresses her.

:topic: did anyone happen to catch "The Last Days of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes on VH1? I heard it was real spooky and they showed scenes from the car crash that killed her.

MJB can sing and perform circles around Beyonce, IMO.

Mary J without a doubt ;) The lady is a natural :worship:

No contest..Its Mary Jane all the way :kiss:

MJB just screams and stuff. She can't sing.

I don't like Beyonce at all, but at least she can actually sing.

May 21st, 2007, 03:34 AM
LOL. Some people think Beyonce screams, not sings.

I've seen both live and my opinion:
Mary is great until she starts hitting those extremely high notes and then well..er...:confused: I much prefer to see Jill Scott in concert than Mary. Jill is amazing and her voice is flawless.

Beyonce is a good live performer if you're looking to be entertained. However if your preference is for the artist to focus more on singing then her show is wrong for you. When I wen't to see her, Missy, Alicia Key's, and Tamia her vocals were on point, but they were nothing spectacular. Both Beyonce and Alicia gave great shows. Missy was alright.

I Respect Mary but i love Beyonce's music more

When it comes to singing, Beyonce is extremely overrated. I like her as a performer, but I've previously seen comparisons vocally between her and Whitney, Mariah and now Mary J. That's simply outrageous. Mary J is by far, far the better singer and interpretter.

MJB craps all over Beyonce!!!!! shes the queen on hip-hop/soul for a reason as she herself states in "MJB da MVP" ft 50 cent..lol..i love mary!!!!

Jun 15th, 2007, 04:36 AM
Mary by a mile! She's the Queen!

Jun 15th, 2007, 01:52 PM
MJB, simply because alot of ppl feel they grew up with Mary, they know all about her struggles and her striving to become a better person and they see her growth up to the point she's at now. Beyonce hasn't let the public in at all really.

Jun 15th, 2007, 03:35 PM

Jun 16th, 2007, 05:12 PM
Theres only one Queen. Mary.

I don't really follow female R&B although I love Lauryn Hill and some Alicia Keys, but I don't like Beyonce's songs much.
Meanwhile "Family Affair" was the shit.
