    Whitney is clearly the better singer


    Arguably better songs but Whitney in my mind suffers from overexposure

    She is so overplayed to me that I can barely listen to her now

    Add that to the fact that I always preferred Anita she has a more soulful voice and it’s more melodic to me

    Plus Anita has less pop catalogue

    and arguably a better and even a more romantic catalogue my preference is Anita

    Both of them have incredible ranges and phrasing. They are definitely in the same league. Whitney has an edge though. And a more versatile catalog. From gospel to rock, she sang the fukk out of them songs

    Why would you do this?
    I was literally just cruising to Rhythm of Love really appreciating the depth of Ms Baker.

    One sings like an Angel the other like a Goddess imo.

    Anita Baker did more soul music and Whitney did more pop. It's hard to say but I like Anita Baker's voice more because she does more range full things with her voice and her vocal arrangements due to the credit of her producers is better than Whitney's.

    Her music is just more real

    And Anita Baker can roller-skate on Beat

    I bet everything on my wedding ring . ahhhhhh ahhhhhhh hhmmmmmmmmmi

    giving it to you baaaaaby.

    Then the piano bridge

    :mjcry:

    Ahll probably shed a tear when she dies



    Whitney's voice is powerful as fukk the way she can just go to a super high note and hold that pitch with such distinct clarity. it's very strong but the songs she made just don't hit you in the chest like Anita
