These are 2 great woman, great artists with tremendous followings and a lot of successes. They also have a mutual amount of respect for one another but there’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition right?¬†

We all know Adele’s “21” trounced Beyonce’s latest work sales wise but B really went in from almost EVERY angle in the studio.. The same can be said of Adele’s 10x platinum masterpiece.. So lets put the numbers aside and talk about the material, who recorded a better album?

When we heard “Rolling In The Deep” we were almost paralyzed by how much her voice had grown and how much emotion she was conveying… That kind of record comes along ever so often, brilliant, couldn’t have been sung better! She followed it up with “Someone Like You” arguably one of the most relatable and well written love songs of our time… She furthered the level of expression by singing the HELL out of it! This process was repeated over and over again throughouy the album.. “I’ll Be Waiting” is our favorite!

We were totally blind sided by the vocals, the writing and the musicianship found on “21” and we’re not alone.. Adele cleaned house at every major around show in the last year and a half, including the Grammys!

Beyonce’s “4”…… We’ll be honest and say that we expected this album to be COMPLETE bullsh**! After the luke warm offerings of “I Am” and the bomb (in a bad way) first single choice (Run The World), we wholly expect Beyonce’s 4th studio effort to flop!¬†

We were wrong… The album is a triumph, a bar raiser, musicianship we didn’t think she was or ever would be capable of!

Beyonce did a complete 180 and came back with some r&b sh** which was totally unexpected. The first 3 or 4 songs tanked at radio but the ppl loved “Love On Top”, “Dance For You” and the cool AF, Kanye produced, J Cole & Andre 3k assisted “Party” but the album was so much more then those mere r&b hits..

Tracks like “Start Over” and “I Miss You” that should have lead the albums promo campaign won’t ever see the light of die or radio for that matter despite the genius!! Beyonce went IN and if you were turned off by the more urban tracks she sent to radio, you’re doing yourself a complete injustice! Cop “4” immediately!

So who won??? It’s hard to say… Sales, awards and bullsh** aside… Beyonce out sung Adele, which was no easy task… However, Adele emptied an automatic assault weapon on Beyonce’s ENTIRE team of writers with tracks like “Set Fire To The Rain”, “Someone Like You” and “Rolling In The Deep”… The vocals and the material are so comparable that we can’t call it, it’s up to the fans and the fans can debate these 2 ladies and there work all day…

I love this video, probably should have been the first thing we saw and heard from the album! It breaks my heart that a jewel like “4” is probably going to be her weakest unit shifter thus far…

WOW! The b**** finally went in! Lol, I’ve been impatiently waiting! I love Beyonce but I can only take her when it’s 100. All her other videos haven’t really been thought out from this albums promo campaign, except “Run The World” of course, LOVE THAT VIDEO TOO!

This video brings me back though, it’s like “Naughty Girl” and “Suga Mama” all in one, love the song, love the visual, give it to us B!

I didn’t like this song AT ALL when I spun the album, didn’t care for it until she performed it a couple months ago at the VMAS, after that it’s like whenever I hear it I can’t stop singing it to myself #UGH lol

Apparently the rest of the country is experiencing a similar phenomenon because “Love On Top” is one of “4’s” highest charters, entered the top 20s after the MTV performance!

With the premiere of the video it’ll like become the break out hit Beyonce needed 4 or 5 months ago when “4” hit shelves.. Love the song now and love the video even more!!

ps: notice the background never changes, it’s a dance studio, just like the “Countdown” video.. LOL #BudgetCuts¬†

I like the video but I LOVE the song! It feels like something that would have gotten leaked from “B’Day”, didn’t make the original album but ended up on the re-release…

“4” is arguably her best work to date but poor promo and management changes have severely injured the public’s image of this album, despite the media’s attempts to make it look like a hit record…

These are the most powerful women in urban music right now!

This is Beyonce’s best debut from “4”, the triumphant but ill-promoted follow up to 2008’s “I Am Sasha Fierce”. B performed the track a few weeks ago at the VMAs and I personally haven’t been able to get the sh** out of my head since… It’s one of my least favorite tracks on the album but a testament to her abilities as a singer and just a small piece of the vocal cocaine that is “4”, COP IT IMMEDIATELY!!!

Nicki & Rihanna team up for “Pink Friday’s” latest single, which re-entered the chart at #64 last week! It’s one of my favorite songs off the album and I love the video! I’m sure this song, given the Rihanna feature will see Billboard’s top 10 and maybe even the pinnacle!

“Loud” latest single, “Cheers” sits happy at #11 and will likely enter the top 10 this week! I didn’t like this song at all but the video has changed the way I hear it. Rihanna may score her 4th chart topper from the 4x platinum “Loud”!!!

All 3 of these ladies WENT IN on there respective projects, great albums in there one regards. I’m very proud of them!
