WHERE ARE THE MALE POWERHOUSE SINGERS?

I was watching an interview with The Dream and he was talking about how there are no male powerhouse vocalists in today's music industry. I was trying to think of some male singers, and unfortunately, The Dream was right. TODAY, there are no big vocal male singers but there were two that immediately came to my mind...Tevin Campbell and Sisqo. These two singers could sing with the best of them. They are the only two young male singers I could think of who could have had stellar careers like Luther Vandross, Ron Isley, Stevie Wonder, etc. Tevin had the legendary Prince and Quincy Jones behind him. Can you believe that?! Prince AND Quincy! When Tevin was in his prime, he could out-sing anyone in the music game. Sisqo on the other hand was just as good. Vocally, no one could compete with Sisqo, I mean no one, not even Usher.



You may ask who is considered to be a powerhouse vocalist? Whitney Houston (obviously), Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Patti Labelle. Today's female powerhouse vocalists? Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia. Don't get me wrong, they are a lot of talented male and female vocalists in today's industry but a powerhouse or BIG vocalist is one who can reach vocal ranges/octaves that separates them from other singers. It's truly unfortunate Tevin and Sisqo never made it to legendary status and unfortunately today's industry doesn't have a young male powerhouse vocalist...but he is out there somewhere. I'll find him someway, somehow.

SEAN COMBS VERSUS JERMAINE DUPRI: BAD BOY IS SO SO DEF

I am a fan of both PUFF DADDY and JERMAINE DUPRI. I tried to be as objective and fair as I could and that’s why I didn’t do a BEST MALE RAPPER category. When it comes to THAT category, PUFFY has it on LOCK. You can’t compare anyone to BIGGIE (Bow Wow versus Biggie is laughable). Anyway, this countdown is based only on MUSIC because that is the foundation and where everything was built for BOTH JD and PUFFY. Enjoy!
