Is Bey vocally on the level of the 90s trinity?

279 posts in this topic

We all know Beyonce has an incredible voice and is arguably the best vocalist of the current pop girls, but how do you think she compares to the 90s vocal trinity (Mariah, Whitney, Celine)?

 

I personally think some people let the fact that Bey lips sometimes - when she's doing choreo - take too much away from her abilities as a vocalist.

She's good, but no. The trinity practically defined a whole generation of vocalists

I'm Hive. I think Bey is underrated as a vocalist on here somehow

She’s much better than Céline. I’d say she’s equal to whitney and lower than Mariah.

I think apart from her tone, she can be comparable to them. But she also has other things to back her up: none of the trinity can do choreo and sing like her. Thats what makes her and Gaga stand out.

On the level of them can be argued from a technical point of view, yes. 
Whitney still remains the voice and MC in her prime was pretty darn amazing too and obv Celine is a very capable vocalist. But I do believe Bey has skills that put her on par.

I guess the argument between Whitney and Mariah is endless and basically boils down to preference at the end of the day. Both were amazing singers with different abilities and strengths.

Mariah had the range, the versatility, her own belting power, flawless technique. Whitney had clear, big belts but wasn't up to par with Mariah in the other categories. Both are the pop vocal queens, though.

Lets not derail this thread with the Mimi vs Whitney arguments :cm: we all know who is the actual queen of vocals :cm: 

 

It’s not fair to compare them to Bey and Gaga since they are good at different things. I mean the trinity wouldnt slay the Super Bowl stage like how Bey and Gaga did.

Whitney's 3 octaves of connected range>>>>Mariah's 5 octaves

Whitney's head voice>>>Mariah's falsetto, hv and whistle

Whitney's belts>>>Mariah's belts

 

I'd even take Whitney's runs and melismas over Mariah's but that's subjective.
