Who’s the better entertainer (sales, popularity, etc.)?
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.
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.
she shows more risk. evolution, and artistic creativity in her music.
Lol. Rihanna’s albums follow the same structure.
Beyonce easily in every aspect.
Rihanna risk? Evolution? Artistic creativity? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That was a good one.
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?
As an Artist = BeyoncÃ© but Rihanna is more popular and has more mainstream friendly songs.
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.
