Diva Legend Catalog Showdown: Mariah Carey Vs Madonna




You can't ever hold a discussion on legendary divas and fail to mention the "M's" ... That is Madonna and Mariah Carey, of course.  Both women have made a humongous impact on today's music scene for very different reasons.  This is why they were selected for one of our most intense diva showdowns yet.  These two ladies display artistry that couldn't be more opposite, possessing strengths and weaknesses that the other does not.  Madonna, on the one hand, is clearly the more versatile of the two; which causes much of her output to be either hit or miss; however, this kind of risk-taking allows her to run circles around Mimi when it comes to innovation.  Mariah's safe (and sometimes predictable), still she employs the kind of sheer emotion vocally that someone like Madonna must work twice as hard to capture.  Mariah's straightforward -yet poignant- songwriting also allows the diva to work her special brand of magic that suits her well.  

Let's get on with the show.  You guys know how this works by now.  What we do is rank the divas top 100 songs from their catalogs (not by the size of the hit, but by quality of the music).  There are no rules when it comes to how many songs may appear by any particular artist, only the best songs by both come out on top!  It comes to no surprise that this competition between these gals is pretty stiff.  Take a look at one heck of a battle below.

Our 2014 Wish List For 10 Major Music Collaborations



Have you ever envisioned two of your favorite artists coming together to make the ultimate duo if given the perfect song or platform?  We have, and we're sure that many of you thought along the same lines.  If some really special collaborations took place in our current music scene, the industry may conjure up some real excitement that hasn't been seen for quite some time (since, perhaps, Beyonce & Lady Gaga's "Telephone").  With a host of singers making their return to music this year, we decided to write up our mega-duet wish list for 2014.  Here's 10 of our brightest ideas!






10. Janet Jackson & Justin Timberlake 
(The Redo)

Yes, you're seeing correctly and we haven't lost our minds.  Let's just say that Justin owes Janet one!  After the mishap that was 2004's Superbowl, it's time to get it right!  Janet had to bite the bullet solo for the last 10 years now.  It's only fair that the public get the eyeful that was intended for them on the first go around (minus the boob slip). 

New Music Video: Alicia Keys - It's On (Featuring Kendrick Lamar)






Alicia Keys is making some noise with her brand new single 'It's Onfeaturing rapper, Kendrick Lamar.  This track can be found on The Amazing Spiderman 2 soundtrack.  The accompanying video has just made it's way online and has a new fierce Alicia -- front and center, ready to make an impact.  Check it out.
