Whitney vs Mariah

Once again, two of the greatest singers of all time will go head to head on the charts.

On August 31st (UK) and September 1st worldwide, Houston will be back in the limelight. Her first studio album since 2002’s Just Whitney will hit stores near you. After overcoming drug problems, divorce, dwindling sales, and more, Houston appears to have triumphed it all to return to the stage.

On September 18th, Carey brings us Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel. Like Houston she has also overcome many hurdles including two albums that failed to match her previously high sales, a breakdown, and an unhappy marriage and divorce at a young age.

But on to happier times…

Whitney’s recent performances show even though her voice is not as it once was, she is still a force to be reckoned with. Photographs of her with her daughter show happy times, she seems to have returned to a healthier weight, and she has the backing of her label and the bosses at the top.

Mariah is on a label who were willing to give her a chance when others had moved on, her ‘lambs’ stand by her no matter what, and now she is happily married to Nick Cannon who seems to be the perfect, doting husband.

But let’s cut to the chase: Whitney VERSUS Mariah.

Who is the better singer?
Who is the better performer (singing+dancing+interactions with the crowd+concerts)?
If one of them flops, which one will it be?

You decide in September…and right now in the Comments.

    aww ivory, WHY you do this to me today?!?!?!? whitney vs. mariah, now that’s not fair dammit.

    well, mariah stayed off the rock even though she has been thru a lot, so she wins a point right there.

    whitney may have won the album sales round. She has been out since ’84, 85…

    they both are phenomenal pop superstars. you speak their name ANYWHERE and they all know who the both are, i think both of these women need to come out smokin’ and i hope both their albums do really well, because they deserve it. They both have been through their share of problems and they both deserve to live the rest of their lives happy and stress-free.

    on top of that, none of these hoes out here today got the voices that they have. none. they are from the days when ass and titties didn’t matter, it was about how your voice could produce a sound that will make a whole room STFU when they opened their mouth. these bird voices don’t have that spund.
    let me get off my soapbox here, i’m getting myself all riled up…

    i am a music lover @ heart, big time, and i am devastated with the music that is out now. it’s like for real, can you talk about more than money and labels? i find myself buying more old cds that i already had versus the crap they got on the new release shelves…

    Cosign 100%. Nowadays we’re caught up in the beats, lyrics, and guest stars on the track instead of the most important part…the VOICE.
