I'd say they were definitely successful, but not legends of music. 'The Writing's On The Wall' is a legendary R&B album, and that's about it IMO.NavyCommodore wrote:They started singing together at age 13 went through trials and tribulations just to get a record deal, got a record deal released their first single it went #1 and their first cd sold 3 million, rush released their second cd, the legendary The Writing's on the Wall cd spawned 3 #1's and sold 15 million world wide, 8 in the US alone. More trials and tribulations a couple replacements and lots of negative press, they release independent woman with new member Michelle Williams and it went to #1 for 11 weeks straight. Then released their next cd survivor and so on and so forth...What have they done that was legendary?
To break it down they have multiple #1's, multiple sickening album sales, critically they're considered thee girl group of the past 20 years, Grammys, world wide appeal and they definitely put their time in... What more do you want?
What do you consider legendary??
Negative. Your opinion on his albums are what they are, just opinions. He never lost himself, just because he infused different genres into his music (which he has done for years) doesn't mean he lost his direction. For every dance song there's 5 more R&B songs. As for album sales? What other R&B/pop male sold 1.3 million albums in the U.S in 2010 and 2011? I'll wait. It's clear that he has a stable fanbase and he caters to them well.Timmy94 wrote:Like Usher was a god ... Actually it was more about an image rather than his music which prevented him from becoming bigger and actually reach a certain status. His first few albums were OK-RNB-albums, Confessions was a moderate album with 4-5 mega hits on it. Then he kinda lost himself and when we wanted to return, he jumped on lame dance songs which still don't get people to buy his albums... So it's clear why he won't become a legend: He lacks a real masterpiece album and still hasn't found his identity... Plus, his credibility isn't always very clear!NavyCommodore wrote:therealestMC wrote:If people said no to Usher then HELL NO to him.
