June is known as Black Music Month and I thought it would be fun to make a thread each day using this template to discuss different Black music related to the questions here.
Yesterday's thread is here if you want to add to it: Black Music Month Challenge Day 6: What's Your Fave Hip Hop/R&B...
Celebrating 25 years of Fugees classic LP 'The Score' with a mix of rarities, remixes, blends + original samples.
One of the reasons I loved this album (& helped me to overlook Pras' subpar verses) was the fusion of dancehall/reggae, so I took it a step further and added Cutty Ranks, Mad Lion...
In case the zoomers on here need a refresher on who her grandfather was
Here's her mother, Lauryn Hill, with D'Angelo in one of the greatest duets in recent history..
Here's 'Slick' from Selah's first EP, Star Power :whoo:
Y'all brehs gonna be taking that carefree approach to...
Well, after many requests, Lisa Fischer got her day to shine and though it was an underwhelming turn out with only 41 votes, she gained a high 8.14/10.
Reflecting on the recording process, Pras said: "At one point, the group had disbanded. [Lauryn Hill] had left the group at this point and we didn't know what we were going to do. She calls me and says, 'Listen, I'm going to come down to the studio and I'm going to lay down a reference for you...
Tamia scored a very decent 7.57 placing her over some very distinguished artist so far.
I got some flack for doing a thread on Mya who came through with a poor 6.03/10 score.
So ya'll nikkas...
We took a break for about a week but we back for Day 16. Last we checked, Janet Jackson came through with a disappointing 6.24/10, placing her 13th out of 15 singers so far.
Brandy came through with a strong 7.5/10 rating. I had her near the high 8's or low 9's but what do I know? The Coli has spoken.
Mary J. Blige scored a 7.10/10 on Day 12 of RTS. I'm kind of surprised as I thought she'd rank lower. Nostalgia is a powerful thing.
For Day 11 of RTS, Pop princess, Ariana Grande, scored a very modest 6.20/10.
We got another Queen today...
So Day 7 of RTS featured British superstar singer, Adele. The Coli had a wide range of opinions on her as she caught just about every rating 1-10. Ultimately, the coli settled at a very average "meh" score of a 6.28/10...
The Coli voters came out hot for Day 6, voting Anita Baker an amazing 8.9 clearly placing her in 1st place so far.
Here's the thread: https://www.thecoli.com/threads/rate-this-singer-female-edition-day-6-anita-baker.719620/
Rankings so far:
1. Anita Baker - 8.9
2. Lauryn Hill - 7.6
3. Beyonce -...
Day 5 of the RTS series was another success with the coli rating songstress, H.E.R, with a 7.2/10.
The rankings are as followed so far:
1. Lauryn Hill - 7.6
2. Beyonce - 7.3
3. H.E.R - 7.2
4. Aaliyah - 6.3
Day 4 of RTS was political indeed, word to @Hannibal Fox. Controversial icon Beyonce was rated a 7.3/10. Very shocked at that rating as I had her in 8-9 range. Never the less, the Coli hath spoken.
Here's the thread...
Day 3 of RTS showed a 6.3/10 rating for Aaliyah, rating her above Rihanna and below Lauryn Hill:
Day 4 will be legendary.
Yall know what time it is :myman...
The inaugural Rate This Singer thread was a success. The Coli music heads came through and rated Lauryn Hill a solid 7.6/10 :ehh: I agree with that rating.
In case you missed out
On to Day 2
