Though her run as a commercial act has never gone unnoticed, there are some who’d agree that Beyonce‘s vocal skill hasn’t always been given the props it deserved despite being the most bankable piece in her career’s puzzle.

So, as to celebrate the star’s ever evolving voice and the songs she’s packaged it in, world renown vocal coach Dileesa Hunter of ‘American Singing Studio‘ has analysed the performer’s instrument in ‘How To Sing Like Beyonce.’

Will you agree with her analysis?

    Girls swear Mariah helped to popularize rap music in the early 00’s but the truth is that is that it was Beyonce. Listen to the writings on the wall album if you don’t believe me, the entire thing was her rapping.

    • Bey Who UWanna January 16, 2015

      Preach! Mariah only used rappers to seem cool and get crossover hits, Beyonce was the one who helped make rap palatable on top 40.

      • pon_de January 16, 2015

        ummm so we just gon pretend that rap and Mariah don’t go back like babies and pacifiers…. Fantasy = 8 weeks at #1 and first female to debut at #1…Mariah taught ALL the girls how to do it. have a seat!

    • #1Lamb January 16, 2015

      oh you hive members with your denial and made up theories on others just to make Beyonce better. Thanks for the laughs

      • Bey Bey King January 16, 2015

        Look here b****! Nobody can deny what Beyonce has done for music but what can be denied is Mariah’s access to her whistle register. #NowTwirlOnThat

    • Truth January 16, 2015

      It was Mary j blige.She started the rap thing.Queen of hip hop soul! fools

      • #1Lamb January 16, 2015

        @truth you are half right. Mary is queen of hip hop/r&b. mariah was always considered Pop and later crossed over to r&b

    • You tried January 16, 2015

      That pic THO!!!!!!!! DAMN

    • #1Lamb January 16, 2015

      @beybeyking last I check (with my own ears and eyes) Mariah’s whistle register is very much intact (goes back to the last show of her well recorded Christmas show…. It was fab you should of been there… In person).So, how about you stop clinging to what ever bad performance you’re clinging to and get up on some current live performances #dahling

  2. truthtea January 16, 2015

    What the hell? Really? People take their obsession with Beybonic too damn far! Go get a damn life!

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) January 16, 2015

      I hope RIHJECT WATCHES THIS LEARNS HOW TO ACTUALLY CARRY A NOTE, INSTEAD OF STICKING HER TONGUE DOWN LEO DICAPRIO’S OESOPHAGUS…..LOL

  3. Melody January 16, 2015

    No lies were detected 2bh. She had a rich sultry voice on DC’s first album, then started rapping on their second. She didn’t show much growth until DIL and then reached her peak during BDAY when her belts were at their best. Shame about Mariah though.

    Can we get on Tinashe?

    • SEVYNTHHeaven January 16, 2015

      What would they say? Whispering isn’t a vocal style boo booo.

  5. Prismatic January 16, 2015

    World renown? LMAO. Jan Smith would be world renown. This girl is just someone who gives vocal lessons via Skype and YouTube

    • Fantasia Slayrino January 16, 2015

      American Singing Studios is world renowned boo boo and I think Katy needs membership ASAP.

    • Ariana’s Grand January 16, 2015

      Not a Strainy Perry fan talking about vocals. I cannot.

    Yaaaaassss bish

  7. SingSpongece January 16, 2015

    I would wanna perform like Beyonce but not sing… I mean, she sometimes sounds like a depressed woman who continuously gets cheated on by her husband. Reminds me of a goat with a dry throat. Anyways, Beyonce is much more known for being a visual artist than her vocals, seriously she can’t sing like a real R&B soul artist unless its studio edited. Her vocals are very struggling. That’s why her songs don’t get played on radio. She’s a depressed vocalist.

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) January 16, 2015

      WHO RAISED YOU THO??

      • SingSpongece January 16, 2015

    She slays Mariah’s fat ass though. Slay Queen!!

    • Baddie Bey January 16, 2015

      That is so true kii

    • Slay_Hive January 16, 2015

      b**** find your own identity!

  9. gilbert January 16, 2015

    i like that she was giving her crappy opinion throughout the whole video instead of showing us how to sing like Beyonce. misleading title and “world renown”? lol, i get that everyone has opinions but she doesn’t even come close to Bey’s vocals. Yes she can sing, but for her to come at B and give all of these criticism makes no sense at all. Until she can outsing Beyonce, she will remain an unknown vocal instructor.

  10. HOWYOULIKEIT January 16, 2015

    Beyonce’s voice in cadillac records was just groundbreaking.

  11. Paulo January 16, 2015

    ok she knows what she’s talking about but that title is very misleading. I’m glad she’s getting her paper and clicks but those 6 minutes of my life were wasted.

  12. Partition Yonce January 16, 2015

    Good singers:
    Brandy
    Beyonce

        Elijah frustrates me cos he sings better than most of the other fellas but doesn’t show any restraint with his runs.

      • Walk It Out For Jennifer January 16, 2015

        Hear how she’s straining just to get on JHud’s level? Damn flop.

      • LDN Chick January 16, 2015

        Um Beyonce sounds way better than J hud there. Fail.

      • Walk It Out For Jennifer January 16, 2015

        You wish.

      • LDN Chick January 16, 2015

        Outshout maybe. Outsing no. Ask an professional vocal coach. She failed to outsing her here.

    • SMH January 16, 2015

      If JHud had laryngitis, she could still out sing beyonce. Have several, please.

      • LDN Chick January 16, 2015

        Outshout maybe. Outsing no darling.

    • KentuckyNoodles January 16, 2015

      Beyonce can’t sing that well tho’. Normally she speaks and you cannot understand a word she is saying, but when she talks moans and scream on a cd, you kinda do, but still not really I mean she is Beyonce and most things that come out her mouth you don’t understand. You know she empower women and tell em to throw their hands up. A good singer, I don’t think so. Nope. Rihanna might have a goat voice burrrrttttt, she slay Beyonce in vocals, she doesn’t shout or complains about men who she never met at all. I mean if she so happy why the sad dragging songs… But ok, I mean. I prefer happy music, that’s what make women feel good.

      • LDN Chick January 16, 2015

        That has absolutley no weight and is just your personal opinion. And no ones talking about Rihanna. Shes not even on the same level.

      • Paulo January 16, 2015

        so singing technique now is 100% enunciation and has to do with how you deal with your man and what kinna content you sing about… LMAO what type of flop flaw logic is that?

  13. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

    Pure Trash. Such utter stupidity. America sure does love this glorified stripper.

  16. SMH January 16, 2015

    Lol it is painfully clear that this person and the rest of beyonce fans haven’t the slightest clue what singing or musicianship is. Beyonce is a mediocre singer, at best. Half the industry can sing rings around her on any given day. It is also a widely known fact that it was Mariah who popularized mixing hip hop with pop music, beyonce just jumped on the bandwagon like she always does. Both her and her fans are so desperate to convince people and themselves that she is some iconic supreme talent that they don’t realize how stupid they’re making themselves look, especially when they make overblown delusional articles like this. Folks already know tha beyonce is nothing but a trend hopper that rehashes things that have already been done to death, and better than she can. And you can save your responses to this, because your delusional defenses of this girl mean nothing. People already know the truth.

    • Baddie Bey January 16, 2015

      “People already know the truth”
      Oh is that so? And what truth is that? That Mariah smoked and drank her voice away? Is that it? That Mariah’s ego has ruined her career because she can’t find a manager who can put up with her personality or delusions?
      Tell me b****, what TRUTH is that?

      • SMH January 16, 2015

        The truth that, despite all that, Mariah can still put beyonce to shame vocally. Name calling doesn’t change that.

    • BossB*tchBeyonce January 16, 2015

      “Half the industry can sing rings around her on any given day.” Who are those people you speak of? Katy? gaga? Rihanna? Ciara? Taylor? Britney? Who are those people you speak of? The only people that could even compare to beyonce vocally is Jhud, Alicia, and Adele. And even those comparisons are a bit rich.

      No! You said Mariah can put Beyonce to shame vocally? Sweet heart, Mariah couldn’t even outsing Elijah let alone Beyonce so have a stadium of seats. Oh did I touch a nerve, seeing as Mariah can’t even sell out stadiums nowadays.

      • #1Lamb January 16, 2015

        Get out your feelings. Mariah is a better singer than Beyonce. bey is the better performer.

  17. Iggy Iggy Iggy! January 16, 2015

    The receipts prove that Beyonce is a shameless over-singer with no control.

    • Danny Bey January 16, 2015

      What receipts tho? J-Hud’s and Christina’s flop album sales?

    • Danny Bey January 16, 2015

      Or ReFLOPified’s receipts? Which is it…

  18. whut January 16, 2015

    Sorry, but a truly world renowned vocal coach would not be making youtube videos.

  20. FixItJesus January 16, 2015

    “she completely takes care of her voice and her voice is growing with her very very gracefully.” Which is why Beyonce will be able to do this well into her 40s. As the years progress, your voice should get stronger, your technique should improve and you should have better control overall. No offense to Christina or Mariah, but years of oversinging have put a strain on their voices, Mariah moreso than Christina. There may still be hope for Christina, but Mariah has just completely lost the ability to project her voice. If they took the time to give these artists proper training, their instruments wouldn’t be stronger 10-15 years down the line instead of strained.

    • Learn Something January 16, 2015

      Great Melisma mistresses
      -Whitney Houston
      -Mariah Carey
      Over singing Category
      -Christina Aguilera (Whistle Register)
      -Beyonce Knowles

    • Paulo January 16, 2015

      Mmmmhmmm! But I think oversinging played a bigger part on Xtina’s. About Mariah, I think it has more to do with extensive singing + touring + use of the whistle plus the expensive bottles that she loves also drains out the vocals.

  21. gina January 16, 2015

    Have a stadium of seats, fleas. Beyonce will NEVER be on the same level vocally as JHud, Christina, or Mariah. She’s only a step above Rihanna vocally, and thats where she’ll always be.

  22. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 16, 2015

    Lol at the Hive bring up Mariah in Beyonce’s post. Don’t even put them in the same sentence because Mariah is far superior to her. Even Bey agrees; http://youtu.be/-86J0JZNKM8

    • Baddie Bey January 16, 2015

      But Mooriah is a fat flop now who lost her voice and her throne to Ariana kii

      • #1Lamb January 16, 2015

        Lost her voice and throne to Ariana? Omg the delusional lies you tell. ariana? The one who can’t get a platnium album? Mariah was replaced by her? Arianna? The one who is a vocal copy cAt of the orinigal? Yeah you keep on dreaming

  23. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) January 16, 2015

    This post is completely irrelevant btw… There are many videos on YouTube of people talking about how to sing like a particular singer. TGJ really goes out of its way to make their faves look like more than they actually.

  26. LDN Chick January 16, 2015

    Beyonce is a great vocalists. There is absolutley no denying it and enough evidence out there. She is a rare gem who can do it all well.

  27. Tyler January 16, 2015

    Half the industry can outsing Beyonce?
    Which half???
    Out of all of the popular main stream girls today, name 5 that can outsing Beyonce. I’ll wait…

      • Paulo January 16, 2015

        girl bye. Ariana is all whistle and high pitch her lower notes are A MESS

  28. Ariana’s Grand January 16, 2015

      pressed? Not when the first comment is about mariah in a Beyonce post lol try again

  30. Tyler January 16, 2015

    Rihanna’s on the same level as Katy Perry and Ciara vocally… Beyonce’s more than a level above her when it comes to singing. So you can stop it with all of that lying.

    • Rihanna #1 fan t January 17, 2015

      Rihanna and Katy Perry are on the same level.. Beyonce is in her own lane now as for Ciara………. *No Comment*

  31. Brandys Starr January 16, 2015

    Why are people so reluctant to give Beyonce credit. You just look SALTY. Vocally, Beyonce is so versatile people don’t even realize and way above most. Its ok to not like her as ana artist but to deny her talent is just delusional.

    • Learn Something January 16, 2015

      Shut up dobu know what being a versatile singer means . Madonna is versatile. Whitney is Xtina is beyonce is not… even on atlast she turned that jazz classic into an rnb song(is credited)

    • Brandys Starr January 16, 2015

      Versatile singer? Madonna? Lol. No, Madonna i a vesatile ARTIST. I am talking about VOCAL ability. Madonna can barely hold a note live.

  32. Danny Bey January 16, 2015

    I would just like to know who she thinks does have that great of voice if Beyoncé doesn’t? Certainly not herself…

  33. Learn Something January 16, 2015

    Greatest Pop Female Voices
    – Whitney Houston
    -Celine Dion
    -Mariah Carey
    -Barbra Streisand
    -Christina Aguilera

    Please this is a fact. beyonce is a good singer but she would never cope in this girls leage . She spends her time over singing every song she can runs are all her force no softness or sweetness in her tone.. even rihanna can make a d*** stand at attention while screaming can beyonce. She’s a mere rnd singer woth good songs and a good career follow up

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) January 16, 2015

      THE NERVE OF UR BUM ASS TO COMPARE BEY TO RIHFUND!!!!!!!! NOW I AM SURE U ARE DELUSIONAL…. P.S LISTEN TO THE CONTROL SHE POSSESSES IN THIS CLIP… WHEN WILL RIHFUND THO??? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YnmmgJjSRa8

    • Brandys Starr January 16, 2015

      Talking about oversinging yet you have christina in your top voices. No just no.

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

      Not to mention that that glorified stripper is a lessor of every one of those names you mentioned. The fleahive are delusional. SMH.

    • Tyler January 16, 2015

      Now I was feeling your drift until you felt the need to bring Rihanna into the equation.
      Rihanna can’t HIT ANYTHING BEYOND A C#5. She’s arguably one of the weakest female vocalist in music. So I’m still confused at to why you even felt the need to mention her….

  34. Room319 January 16, 2015

    Learn how to sing like yourself~

  35. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

    Not to mention that that glorified stripper is a lessor of every one of those names you mentioned. The fleahive are delusional. SMH.

    • Tyler January 16, 2015

      Rihanna is a lessor to everyone of those names mentioned, including BEYONCE’S.

      Now, we are discussing vocals here. Not microwavable #1 singles. #StayInYourLane

  36. LDN Chick January 16, 2015

    Lol @ pressed Rihanna fans trying to give their opinion on true vocalists. Don’t be mad because your fave will NEVER be considered a true vocalist like Beyonce.

  37. OVO Janette January 16, 2015

    Elijah’s been mentioned a few times here which is interesting because I just started listening to him. His voice is out of this world but he does have a problem with doing too much sometimes and would be much better if he learned to harnass his power like Christina should have done.

    When it comes to Beyonce, I agree with the video but doesn’t understand how her fans can be shading Mariah when she copied Mariah’s style circa 2001.

  38. Tyler January 16, 2015

    Unless you stan for Whitney, Aretha, Mariah (20 years ago), or Celine… Which the most of you don’t.
    Feel free to ceese and desist! These women are arguably the greatest female vocalist in music history.
    Now the hive never claimed, that Beyonce was the best vocalist but she is a good one. Who just so happens to know how to dance her ass off.
    Too bad the same can’t be said for Rihanna, Katy, Britney, Ciara, or Gaga. Fact is, she still obtains MORE VOCAL TALENT THAN YOUR FAVES. So idk why half of you h*** are even talking.

    • Barb Bey January 16, 2015

      Beyonce is the best vocalist though, she can sing and dance live and the other girls could only do one or the other. She does both.

    • Pearl January 16, 2015

      Oh please Tyler Gaga is not vocally challenged like the other girls you mentioned i place her in the same vocal league as Queen bey BUT Bey will always be above her

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        Who tf are you telling? I never Gaga is not more vocally talented than Beyonce…you might want to re-read my comment booboo

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        I NEVER said that Gaga was a better vocalist than Beyonce.

  39. Navi Kiss Kiss January 16, 2015

    Rihanna knows how to sing without straining so let’s not even go there with the Beyonce comparisons please.

    • LDN Chick January 16, 2015

      Looool!

    • Pearl January 16, 2015

      Wow you call what Rihanna does singing?

    • Tyler January 16, 2015

      Yeah, that’s probably because Rihanna talk sings. Rihanna is not a better vocalist than Beyonce. Anybody with an ounce of vocal inclination knows that. She can’t even do half of the vocal acrobatics nor does she have a wider range than Beyonce does. These are all facts when it comes down to skill and vocal technique. So I’ll talk about it until I’m tired.

  40. JOHNVIDAL January 16, 2015

    Her technique is great but she still doesn´t posses a special voice. No matter how much she develops it, it´s just not a natural slayer, a one of a kind voice. I think there´s no need for example of voices who are THAT amazing. It isn´t about power or anything.

    • Tyler January 16, 2015

      @Johndival
      Whether or not you think that Beyonce’s voice is “special” is irrelevant…because it’s all a matter of subjectivity.
      We are talking about VOCAL TALENT. Technique and skill aren’t subjective. These are two FACTUAL VOCAL CONCEPTS.
      Fact is, Beyonce has a very resonant voice, a good tone, even better vocal control, and can execute rifts or runs beautifully.
      You may not like her but for you to take all of that away from her simply because you feel like her voice isn’t “special” is beyond f****** stupid.

      • JOHNVIDAL January 17, 2015

        It´s not stupid, and like I said I don´t take that away from her, it´s the first thing I said. But there´s a reason why Beyonce has not wowed the world with her voice and is unable to release a ballad as a single, while Whitney, Mariah, Celine, Adele and more have wowed the world with their voices alone (apart from other talents) and sold much more in the process btw.

  41. JOHNVIDAL January 16, 2015

    And yeah the post is pretty irrelevant like many of you have said. You could do an article like this one for almost every good singer. Anything to throw Beyonce´s name everywhere 🙂

  42. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

    Like I said, the fleas are delusional. They keep clinging on their singer/actress/stripper fame. I mean really now?!?! Jennifer Hudson is worlds better than T*********. Anyway, here’s Rihanna’s “Stay.” Enjoy!!!!! ❤

        Oh no… OMG @ that he-e-eart run on Russian Roulette. I love me some RiRi but this is why I’m not too anxious to see her live lol

      Stay is a basic ballad for a basic vocalist. Not vocally challenging at all. Call me when Rihanna can sing a song like Love On Top or Listen.

      • Skyfall January 16, 2015

        Neither of those songs are challenging try Butterfly by Mariah Carey

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        Lol they are for your fave and not all singers can sing them. Stop being delusional. You can bring Mariah into it all you want, the fact is Rihanna could never sing certain songs Beyonce could sing because she is limited vocally.

  43. Hadley January 16, 2015

    Vocal preference is entirely subjective. Ability is not. You watch talent shows, they reference Beyonce always. Personally I love Beyonce because she can sings that make you want to dance, she can slay ballads, she can make you feel empowered, aggressive and smooth and s***. Shes very multi faceted in her voice. Something thats not easily achieved.

    • Hadley January 16, 2015

      *Plays listen, resentment, love on top, dangerously in love and all the other songs Rihanna could never sing*

      • Skyfall January 16, 2015

        All those songs are basic

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        Lies.

  44. Skyfall January 16, 2015

    Rihanna is a great singer, and people need to start giving her recognition because her growth vocally from pon de replay to now has been outstanding. She is a far better singer than Katy Perry, Miley, Lorde, Taylor swift, Lana del rey and her vocal are very versatile and unique.

    • Paulo January 16, 2015

      so true! most of her Unapologetic performances have been good. but don’t do Miley and Lorde like that tho they usually do ok live too. Katy…………

      • Skyfall January 16, 2015

        I know Miley and Lorde can sing but Rihanna slays them vocally

    • Hadley January 16, 2015

      That still doesn’t put her on Beyonces level.

      • Skyfall January 16, 2015

        Who said she was on Beyonce level, I simply said she was a great singer even though most of the delusional people on here act like she isn’t

  45. Royalkev January 16, 2015

    I remember when I first heard Bey on ‘No No No’, I had to listen to her part over a few times (on that ‘better hurry up’ line). I wasn’t sure what happened, she sung so fast! That’s when I realized Bey was the new new! Honestly, her style was so refreshing! B**** was that drink of water you needed on a sizzling hot day! B only expanded on that sound with DC on TWOTW album. I must say, that’s when I noticed a shift in the industry. There are so many artist to this very day singing with that B-like, speedy, aggressive manner. Bey’s voice has only grown stronger and more richer. You can’t deny her! Yes, she’s an entertainer, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that she has the vocals to back it all up.

  46. Tyler January 16, 2015

    Love On Top>>>>Stay

    “Love On Top” is way more vocally challenging than “Stay”. The vocal arrangements in “Stay” can’t hold a candle to “Love On Top’s”…”Halo” even has more rifts, runs, and scales than “Stay”. Please sit tf down.

    • Skyfall January 16, 2015

      Beyonce songs are Beyonce songs and Rihanna songs are Rihanna songs. Rihanna wouldn’t do beyonce songs justice and vice versa I could only imagine the hot mess Diamonds would of been if Beyonce decided to sing it.

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        In terms of technique there is huge difference. Hence why Beyonce songs have more range and textures in them vocally. Beyonce could probably sing Diamonds in her own way. However, Rihanna could not sing certain Beyonce songs. There is not denying that certain songs fit better artists. Thats like asking Mariah to sing Diva. Thats not the point Tyler is making.

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        No, It’s not it about them being Rihanna’s songs or Beyonce songs. The bottom line is, one of them is way more vocally talented than the other. And considering the fact that Beyonce has a wider range than Rihanna, I’m quite sure that she could EASILY execute a song like “Diamonds” or “Stay”.
        The same couldn’t be said for Rihanna in regards to songs like “Love On Top” or “I Care” though.

  47. Hadley January 16, 2015

    How can you call a song like Listen basic lmao. That is the song everyone wants to nail on talent shows.

    • Skyfall January 16, 2015

      I was mostly referring to love on top

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        Again how is that song basic with all those key changes?

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        Whatever you believe, I could careless. The song is not basic by any vocal standards. Its far more challenging than stay.

    • Skyfall January 16, 2015

      Ok the song isn’t basic but it isn’t really difficult to execute either. I’ve heard little kids sing Love on Top and sound somewhat decent so I know Rihanna could. I think I Care would be a much more difficult song to sing especially those staccatos at the end.

      • Hadley January 16, 2015

        Whatever you believe, I could not care less. The song is not basic by any vocal standards. Its far more challenging than stay.
        Please provide a receipt of Rihanna hitting the highest note on Love On Top and I may consider. Until then, I believe is not enough.

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        And, that still doesn’t take away from the fact that “Love On Top”, among a lot of other Beyonce songs, are more vocally challenging than “Stay”. The vocal combo’s in “Stay” aren’t hard to sing at all.

      • Skyfall January 16, 2015

        Both songs are Harder than Stay, and Rihanna highest note is C6 and the highest not in Love on Top is a C6

      • Kyle January 16, 2015

        Lol at ‘I believe Rihanna could sing Love On Top’

    Lmfao

  49. Tyler January 16, 2015

    I have never, ever seen any source of relevance note Rihanna as being a “great vocalist”, for have amazing technique, or for having a stellar vocal performance…ever!

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

      Why don’t you use your other accounts “BeyxMaraj” and “Minajesty (Believe in your Queendom)” and trolling under my name because this email/name and your points are irrelevant and void. Lol 😀

    • Skyfall January 16, 2015

      I said she was a “great singer” not vocalist. I consider people like Mariah Whitney Celine etc as vocalist Rihanna is just a great singer nothing more nothing less.

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        @Skyfall
        I’ve never seen any source of relevance refer to Rihanna as a “great singer” either, but okay… I feel you.

  50. Tyler January 16, 2015

    For every one horrible Beyonce vocal performance, if one even exist, I have a dozen more horrible Rihanna…..Katy, Britney, Gaga, and Ciara vids for you.

    • JOHNVIDAL January 17, 2015

      Gaga slays in her performances, it´s not about vocals only, but in general she slays. I agree with the other examples though.

  51. Pat January 16, 2015

    How on earth can one compare Beyonce Knowles to Mariah Carey…Mariah is so far above this woman in terms of talent, Smh!

    • Tyler January 16, 2015

      Well, Beyonce is light years ahead of Rihanna in terms of vocal talent and people compare them all of the time…s*** happens.

  52. I Stan For Myself January 16, 2015

    Ugh why is the Hive even arguing over Beyonce/Rihanna vocals? Stop being easy targets. Anyone with a braincell knows one is way above the other it doesn’t even need an explanation.

    • DontPhunkWithMyFerg January 16, 2015

      Exactly.

  53. RICHIE_RICH January 16, 2015

    What’s the purpose of this post again? The Haters are just too damn comcial for me. At the end of the day now matter how you feel Beyonce’ is a singer and a damn good one at that. Can she sing better than Whitney or Mariah in their prime? NO, in the present moment she will sing moon around Mariah and Whitney before she died. (RIP Nippy) No shade nor hate just FACTS

    I think Jhud can sing, but she over does it for me. Her voice is more for gospel song IMO……

  54. DontPhunkWithMyFerg January 16, 2015

    Are we seriously asking ourselves if Rihanna can sing? Beyonce, Elijah and Gaga etc are real vocalists. Rihanna is not.

  55. Tyler January 16, 2015

    @I Stan For “Talent”

    Don’t you see grown folks talking?

    • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 16, 2015

      Nope. All I see is delusional bey stans talking ’bout how she has the best vocals. Lol!!! Try using your other names: “BeyxMaraj” and “Minajesty (Believe in your Queendom).” Maybe your struggle drags will somewhat make sense because your gay ass isn’t making any sense. #Exposed. If it isn’t this name commenting, its these other names. You’re so pathetic. Do you crave that much attention? Lol!!! Bye Felicia. 😀

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        My fave can sing better than yours and that’s a fact.
        The only note that Rihanna has ever carried was one she HIT in Chris Browns Lambo…While he was whooping her ass. That’s why you are so bothered.

      • Tyler January 16, 2015

        You’re just mad because the only note that Rihanna has ever carried was one she HIT in Chris Browns Lambo…While he was whooping her ass.
        Beyonce’s vocals>>>Rihannas

      HAVE SEVERAL SEATS NOWWWWW !!!

  57. TheElusiveLamb January 16, 2015

    She doesn’t really know what is she talking about, but ok. I can’t at my fellow BeeHive shading Mariah, when Beyoncé exact words are “Mariah Carey is the person that made me want to sing.” Mariah IS responsible for Hip-Pop (MJB is responsible for hip-hop and soul/R&B). Mariah as a vocalist simply CAN NOT be denied. I don’t care if she messed up live. She is human. No one wants to talk about the 6 night consistency that she did, but are quick to bring up her bronchitis tour and her tired, common cold voice in 0 degree weather. She has not lost her access to her whistle register. She has not lost her voice, but her voice has changed and the notes above F are damaged unless it’s the head or whistle register. Beyoncé is amazing. We ALL know I love her and have been 5 of her concerts/tours, but she has NOTHING to do with Mariah Carey unless it’s referring to their friendship or the FACT that Mariah inspired Beyoncé. Mariah inspired your favs regardless of you liking her or not. I will not argue with anyone on this subject. You ALL are idiots.

    • RICHIE_RICH January 16, 2015

      THANK YOU,Say that again……

  58. A&R January 16, 2015

    Wow. I can’t believe that grape posted this woman. She’s fraud and she dislikes Beyonce. I had a debate with her on YouTube.smh remove this. She can’t sing better than Beyonce and she’s a vocal coach. That confuses me. No, it baffles me.

  59. Stephy Jackson January 16, 2015

    Beyonce is an excellent vocalist. Her prime vocal years were from 2006 – 2011. She can still sang tho.

    Mariah was a great vocalist. Her prime vocal years were from 1990 – 1996. Her vocals are permanently damaged today (Alcohol & Nodules)

    Whitney was THE greatest vocalist PERIOD. Her prime was from 1985 – 1994… Drugs & Nodules killed her voice

    SCREAMtina STRAINuilera was a great vocalist. Her prime was 1999 – 2006. She can still grunt & scream/sing today tho
    ….
    There are many great vocalist who can BLOW Beyonce off the stage. But, they just aren’t famous. Usually, the best & most powerful singers are the people behind the scenes or background singers….

  60. YOUDONTKNOW January 16, 2015

    How can you say you know her voice development in the early days when you don’t follow her or listen to everything live or studio.. Dangerously in love is when she developed a lot. From destiny’s child it was all about RUNS and dangerously in love displayed soulful sooth smooth elegant RNB. BDAy her 2nd album is when she showered her power capability that she always had. Sasha fierce was a mixture of both as there are two CDS. 4 is the cd that displayed her best vocals, she shows all types of levels of singing.

  61. Rihanna #1 fan t January 17, 2015

    Rihanna is west indian what she does is called dubbing .. its like rapping but a west indian way.. This video did not teach anybody how to sing like beyonce funny thing is no one can teach you how to sing like beyonce but beyonce herself.. but then again beyonce is beyonce only she can do what she does.. so this video and this post is useless

  62. MariahIsMusic1 January 17, 2015

    Her voice is so beautiful, great vocalist.

  63. LaKeeThatsME January 17, 2015

    I only have to disagree with one thing, that she didn’t sing very much as a younger artist. Only because Beyonce’s vocals on “Second Nature,” from that 1st Destiny Child album; I’ve never heard Beyonce use you voice in that way ever again. Beautiful vocals on that track.

  64. KeKe March 9, 2015

    Ugh
