In honor of the Teyana Taylor and Rihanna beef, it was only fitting that our “Throwback Thursday” post be about the two ladies.
Although Rihanna’s catalogue is much larger and more lucrative, we can’t deny Teyana’s vocal ability. Teyana held so much promise when her Star Track (The Neptunes) debut single, “Google Me’ premiered. The video was a celebration of youth and the world’s first introduction to the budding star. Although, the singer would not gain much ground musically, she would go on to do movies, launch a successful sneaker line with Reebok and sign a deal with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music.
Rihanna, on the other hand, has dominated the music world with hit after hit and has even been compared to this generation’s Madonna (Yeah, I know…I didn’t say it!). Rihanna’s name never seems to be too far from controversy, so it was no surprise when the violence in her “Man Down” video had sparked a fire storm of criticism for the Caribbean beauty.
Watch both videos below and let us know what you think!
