    And can we all talk about how HTBT was quite ahead of his time? We love a pioneer on doing trap beats in pop music mainstream

    I think both of you are right, there’s a lot pf extremely talented girls artist out there with a distinctive, look, sound, amazing voice and increidble star power but I’ve yet to hear THAT song from them, and their caarers have been stalled because of that
     
    Chlöe and Bree Runway for example

    Future Queen of Pop made some points:
     
    On a serious note... I disagree with people who say singers who don't write (all of) their own music are less of an artist than, say, Taylor Swift who I personally think is very overrated as a writer, but that's a different discussion. Art comes in many forms and shapes, and in my opinion, someone like Beyoncé curating an album out of all the songs her A&R presents to her, recording her flawless vocals that are leagues above any of those songwriters, and ultimately creating one cohesive body of work out of them that really can be admired and enjoyed as one big whole rather than just a collection of songs – I don't think there's anything wrong with that? In fact, I would argue that no other artist out there would be capable of making Renaissance. And yet, when Renaissance came out, people ridiculed Bey for crediting every co-songwriter, every sample, every voice memo that she used on it, which obviously led to dozens of different writers in the credits. (Not gonna comment on the earlier Beyoncé cases because I honestly don't know enough about them.)
     
    This being said, I do hate it when artists contribute very little or only change a few words and still act like they wrote the whole thing. I don't get where this obsession with artists having to write everything themselves comes from? I mean, did the fact that she didn't write her own music make Whitney Houston any less of a legend? No! Similarly (because he's an artist I know a lot about and thus can actually comment on), Troye Sivan was very open about the fact that Rush was presented to him in almost finished form and he then only re-wrote the verses and the bridge, and yet his performance made that song 100 % his own.
     
    If we're gonna expect every artist to be a prolific solo writer, an amazing vocalist and a competent live performer, then I'm afraid there's not gonna be any artists left that actually fit that criteria.

    i'm just gonna leave this message from the GOAT whitney here:

    lyrics without a voice singing them are worthless. there's a reason why we hear about beyoncé, rihanna and ariana grande and not about rich harrison, ester dean or tommy brown. there's a reason why lana has this very website dedicated to her and we're not on rickboards, jackboards or emileboards. bc she's the star, not them. and so is beyoncé, rihanna, ariana, etc. there's so much more to being a star than songwriting, and that's where the REAL talent lies. a song is nothing without an entrepreneur to do it justice. star quality babes, something no songwriting skills can buy. and, of course, VOCAL talent which is, essentially, what being a singer is. i rest my case
