    Brandi made the bigger impact, but only if you count Moesha

    Aaliyah had greater impact. Maybe not at the time but certainly on music and image today (though Timbaland had a lot to do with that). Aaliyah and Brandy’s best singles tower over Monica’s, though the latter has the best voice.

    This is tough becuase I feel like Monica has the better voice but the other two had a bigger impact but in different ways. Brandy had a tv show so I gotta go with her.

    Brandy had the biggest impact in the 90’s.

    Aaliyah had the biggest impact post 90’s despite her untimely passing.

    Aaliyah had the most impact. Brandy makes the best music & has the best voice. Brandy’s commercial peak was bigger than any of the others, though.

    Aaliyah wins this battle, mainly b/c of her untimely death. :-((

    Aaliyah has made the biggest impact musically. She’s influenced everyone from Drake to Rihanna.

    The legendary Aaliyah.  Her final, self-titled album is better than anything the other two have ever released.  Thirteen years after her tragic demise, Aaliyah is the most relevant.

    Brandy was the most popular during the 90’s.

    Monica has the best voice of the three.

    Brandy was definitely the most popular (in the ’90s) and had the most unqiue voice out of the three.

    Monica maintained a stronger level of urban support than Brandy throughout the ’00s, though. 

    Aaliyah is the most influential of the three. That’s not even up for discussion. From Drake to Ciara to Jhene Aiko to Tinashe to Banks to Rochelle Jordan to just about all the other alt-R&B/contemporary R&B acts of today. Her impact is still felt. It may have been due to her death, but that’s neither here nor there. 

    I can’t say that I don’t love any of these ladies. They’re my childhood years.

    Best voice & most popular – Brandy
    Most hot 100 success – Monica
    Best performer/ entertainer & most influential – Aaliyah

    All three are great in their own way. But I’d argue that Brandy wins the 90’s three-way contest. Now if we go into the 2000’s, Aaliyah wins by a wide margin, as her self-titled album re-shaped r&b music.

    Well, i think Aaliyah was the one with the most critical support, and the one that was seen as the most talented. Brandy was the more commerical one, the one that was meant to appeal to the widest audience, and I think, likely had the least control over her music.   She clearly was worked very hard and was promoted nearly non-stop.   And Monica, I think had to settle for being the third tier one. She was talented and all, but she wasn’t the hip/cool one like Aaliyah and she never really developed the massive strong popularity that Brandy had.

    so in their own way, I’d say they each had impact.   But there was clearly a pecking order.

    And of course all three are far more talented that Ashanti ever was!
