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
5. Rihanna - 5.2

Onward to day 6.

The Process:

1. Vote on the listed singer from 1* - 10* on how good you think the listed singer is.
1* being :camby: (Absolutely Terrible) - 5* being :ehh: (Decent) - and 10* being:ohlawd: (Vocal Mastery)

2. The following things should be taken into account : Vocal quality, Vocal control, Vocal technique, Song Flexibility (ability to do different types of genres i.e pop, rnb, jazz, rap etc.), Live singing vs CD singing. Album/Mixtape quality. Longevity. Musicianship (Can they play instruments) Classic songs/hits. Entire body of work. Do they stand the test of time?
I don't recommend it but if you want to you can take looks, sexuality, into account, go head. If there are any other metrics you choose to use to vote, do you.

3. Votes will be displayed publicly.

4. Voting poll will last for 24 hours and then close.

5. Singers will be chosen randomly. PM me if you have suggestions you'd like to see.

6. Videos will be posted to showcase the singers abilities.

7. Some pictures will be added.

8. Votes will be tallied up and the average of the votes will result in the final score.

9. Drop that dap and 5 star thread rating

And Another One, word to DJ Khaled. This one for my old heads. I was born in 1990 so I'm not an old head but I am a music lover and historian so this applies to me.
