    Some have all the ingredients, others don't.
    Agreed. Exceptional music can come in many forms, from voices big and small.

    Plus her harmonies are brilliant.

But had they been black, they would still be successful imo, albeit probably moderate. But Eminem has several all time classics to his name. And he is completely comparable to Kanye. Kanye has gone insane and he seems that he never had this much press and attention, scoring several hits in recent years with his worst music (at minimum lyrically), while praising the orange buffoon, etc. Taylor Swift had she been black she'd be singing under the bridge.
    JT is indeed very talented. He can sing, he can dance, write songs, play instruments and is a great live performer. But once he starts talking (or tweeting), that's where the problem usually starts.

    I would say success-wise JT is kind of the equivalent of Usher, maybe a little more successful worldwide cause his music is more Pop-oriented. The difference is, JT is able to stay relevant through some movies, connections & media appearances, etc. while Usher seems to kinda lose his touch with the younger generation, plus his decision to dive into Dance-Pop/EDM kinda hurt his loyal fanbase while JT always sticks to his usual sound (or should I say, Timbaland's) throughout his whole career except for the last album that he did.

    She actualy is decent when it's just her on the guitar, with a song like "eyes open". She just sings those pop songs now that don't realy fit her voice. She was never a great vocalist anyways though

    Janet & Her 500M spotify streams, 250m YouTube streams are nowhere near legendary. Maybe a icon. Bye

    Also, she would often fuse other genre's (rock, dance, hip hop, funk etc.) with R&B, which made her sound quite different from others.

    My view of course!!!

    I just got blocked & called dumb on the book, because a barb just tried to argue me down that nicki Minaj had more impact in the music industry & fashion world as Rihanna & beyoncé.

    I never take the high road. When it’s time to go in, I don’t dare hold back.

    So I sent off a simple Happy Birthday. As soon as I got a reply I regretted it.

    Too many assumptions like Wooow and Didn‘t expect that. What should I reply now? I thought of writing something generic like Life is full of surprises but to be honest, I don‘t feel like replying at all – could come across as rude though
    You're worried about coming off as rude? Your ex is garbage and i can see why he is an ex. He should have just said thank you and left it at that. I'd write nothing back.
