Who is Ella Mai?

I don’t know her personally, obviously. The first time I heard her song was on Instagram, a song called Trip.

So I followed her and found that I liked the song. Here is her album.screenshot_20190109-175350.

I found the list of her songs on Instagram.

Beyonce and Jay Z

I am watching a Netflix special by David Letterman. The show is called and my next guest is.
Jay -Z is being interviewed and the host asks “Who is your Matisse?” Quickly yet thoughtfully, Jay -Z replies, “Notorious BIG, Tupac Shakur”
Jay Z has won 21 Grammy Awards and has 13 Albums to date (September 24th 2018).
Matisse was an old painter and considered an artistic rival of Pablo Picasso.
Art is all about taste, and interestingly people compare different art pieces. Opinion drives value.

For me rivalry is based on opinion, and not the artistes creative capacity.

At this point in time, to ask a musician whether his musical work compares to painting is rather confusing.

The difference between the so called Matisse-Picasso rivalry and Jay Z – Tupac Shakur – Notorious Big rivalry is that in music, two musical artistes can come together and collaborate while in painting you will never see two painters working on the same project. Hahaha can you believe how ludicrous and boring that would be!
