    You'll notice the talented music acts (and their fans) don't have delusional rabid fans who live in hyperbole. It's always the poppy mediocre ones that attract the simple-minded.

    From Bey right down to Kanye and Kendrick. They play in this shallow, flimsy music pseudo-deep world all day.

    very on point.

    we've been living in an era of hyperbole since the mid 2000s. and it just gets more insane every year.

    CrimsonTider is a garbage poster. I wouldn't waste time going back and forth with him/her

    Here's another thing to take into consideration when cats want to talk about having writers.

    Look at Janet's album credits, No song on Rhythm Nation had more than three writers: Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis and Janet.
    Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Look at Beyonce's credits, some of her songs got 7+ writers and 6+ producers. This has gone on for albums.
    Beyoncé (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Lemonade (Beyoncé album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Pretty ridiculous to compare them now.

    That's because it wasn't as tedious as it is now, back then you could use a melody a drum pattern and a few lines from other songs without being sued. These days every single line pattern, melody, phrase has to be given credits or you'll get sued

    This is dumb reasoning for them not to be compared

    Then how do you explain Ellie Goulding, Lady Gaga and Sia then?

    The Fame Monster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Halcyon (album) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    1000 Forms of Fear - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Is it surprising that the track that had the most writers on those three albums was featuring Beyonce?

    Face it brehs, Beyonce uses more writers than most artists. That's the knock here.

    The thing is, that most anybody can present an idea/theme/vibe to 50 creators/artists and then come out with something good at the end.

    She's a very talented performer/singer/personality, but to call her things like "creative genius" I think you are diminishing all the people that really created the music.

    I agree but you are comparing how yimes were in the 80's-90's to the digital and social media era when you speak on how both fans are. Im sure if Janet was makig those songs in THIS day in age that her stanbase would be just as annoying

    Exactly. The number of writers and producers speak for themselves. Especially when you consider some hot artists presently don't even use a quarter as many.

    shyt, even when they don't hire a full on squad, Beyonce and Rihanna have some their songs fully written by Sia, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Miguel and other major artists themselves just for her to sing.

    Maybe, maybe not. I don't think it would be the same because Janet Jackson didn't make the same style of generic music that is overhyped. She probably wouldn't be a massive star in this era to be honest with you.

    People forget Beyonce also put out 'Soldier' and some really horrible, generic, no thought put into it music.

    Ye her music has consistently had the same style of houston ratchetness & sassyness from DC days so I do think she has artistic in put it's just that what I think she does is still vapid and not really that commendable artistically. To put it bluntly, I think she's a dumb person who makes dumb music.

    No POP album post 2013 will have less than 10 writers.. None... Everybody loves the weeknd on this site but I bet that Album had at least 25 writers on it..... Intellectual property law is a real thing...
