Versus: Predictions/Nominations
« on: May 02, 2020, 01:24:26 pm »
This weeks matchup is Erykah Badu vs Jill Scott

Prediction- Erykah Badu is not only unique, she is uniquely Erykah Badu. What she was able to capture with BADUIZM became a cultural moment. Most people can tell you where they were and what was happening in their life when BADUIZM came out. Jill Scott is a great singer and performer who has a great catalog of songs but she doesn't have a BADUIZM. If this came down to a performance I think Jill Scott wins hands down but for this battle

Winner- Erykah BADU

Nomination- Chaka Khan vs Patti Labelle

Just wanted to say that I agree with all of this 100%. I can't find a nit to pick. Well said.
