@Xanni15: I read the title as black singers. So that is what I did. I should probably edit that.

Beyonce Knowles and Alicia Keys, those are the only modern day women who deserve my mention. Rihanna and Nicki Minaj are inferior to these two.

Alicia Keys, to me, everyone else is secondary. Everything about her, from her voice, lyrics, style, is perfection.
