Who’s the better entertainer (sales, popularity, etc.)?November 12, 2014 at 6:05 am #403889
I’ll bite on this:
Beyonce is the more talented vocally and is a better overall entertainer, but I think Rihanna’s overall catalog is MUCH stronger and she shows more risk. evolution, and artistic creativity in her music.November 12, 2014 at 6:39 am #403890
Beyonce, hands down.
Not only is Beyonce a way better singer than Rihanna, her catalog of music is much better. Beyonce’s latest self-titled album is better than anything Rihanna has ever released.November 12, 2014 at 7:17 am #403892
Beyonce easily in every aspect.
Rihanna risk? Evolution? Artistic creativity? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was a good one.November 12, 2014 at 7:41 am #403893
Rihanna is much better than her detractors give her credit for, but yeah, Beyonce has took much more risks and more of a commanding artistic personality than her, especially in her last two albums (and no Rihanna album comes close to being as good as Beyonce’s self-titled, that’s sure). I have come to pretty much like both the same way though. Beyonce is more consistent, but Rihanna, as uneven as she is, has more killer singles. Can I pick both?November 12, 2014 at 7:42 am #403894
As an Artist = BeyoncÃ© but Rihanna is more popular and has more mainstream friendly songs.November 12, 2014 at 11:35 am #403895
This is not even a competition. I do like Rihanna, but she is very inconsistent and nowhere near Beyonce’s level. Rihanna has more hit singles, but I’d argue that Beyonce probably has more iconic hits- Bey has been in ROTY/SOTY 4 times (“Crazy In Love,” “Irreplaceable,” “Halo” and “Single Ladies”), while Rihanna has only gotten in for “Umbrella” (excluding “Love the Way You Lie”).
And I agree- Beyonce is better (and riskier) than anything Rihanna has ever done.
