Of the many, many singers on the channels everyday how many do you think can actually sing?
To me looks like most of them are out there just to look pretty and show some skin.
If that, rappers are not acturally "singers", they are just speaking!
More interestingly, what female singers actually get chosen for their voice? (and not their looks)
First, to the person claiming rappers aren't singing because they're speaking...well, yes. That's pretty much obvious from a definitional standpoint, but I don't see how that in any way indicates a lack of talent. A different sort of talent, maybe.
Second, the majority of singers who are famous can't sing, especially those in genres where singing comes secondary. Pop and R&B's pop variant are examples of genres where image and catchy music seem to matter more than actual singing ability. Paris Hilton can not sing. Neither can Akon. Neither can T-Pain. In contrast, Tori Amos, John Legend, and Nelly Furtado can sing, and often do so beautifully.
100% of them. Oh, you mean well? About 30% to 40%.
Chris Martin from Coldplay.
My opinion is that there are far too many record company generated artists out there. I'm talking about the ones on the radio with the really irritating songs that are way too over produced.
Even if it sounds like they can sing, it's probably the fault of the sound engineer who goes through multiple takes and edits it all together to make one performance that will then be processed, tuned and compressed most likely.
