    dionne warwick classic artists

    In an interview with Essence magazine, Dionne Warwick seemed all but fed up with the current state of music. Dionne is back with a brand new album called She’s Back, and she had this to say about today’s jams:

    “I don’t know if 10 years from now, anybody can actually sing the songs of our babies today. That’s not, as you guys say, ‘throwing shade,’ it’s looking at it with reality,”

    When asked about Beyonce being a classic or iconic songstress, Dionne said:

    “I love her to death and can appreciate her talent. But that iconic status, it’s a long road [ahead],”

    Do you agree?

    1. I agree…bey is up on a petal stool…but iconic🤔…she has talent..but i wouldn’t go that far ..now Whitey Houston she was iconic…at this point in time Beyonce is the best this generation has to offer… Legendary or iconic honestly for This generation… Look at who her Competition is.. that’s not really saying much..

    2. Speaking the truth—I only listen to 60-80’s music
      I like a very few songs they sing now, you can count
      on one hand and still have fingers left.

    3. Bey is a ultra overrated Tina Turner mho,but hey ppl like what they like. DW is saying nothing new nobody hasn’t said in the past,the kicker is that black ppl continue to buy that over produced,too loud
      same style,auto tuned mess.Its like we don’t want to put the WORK/CREATIVITY involved in making good art…again mho frm a 80’s teenager/musician #boycottthemalready

    4. There’s a lot of good people out there today, they just don’t get the exposure that Rih, Bey, and Drake get. Had Angie Stone, Van Hunt, or KING come out in another era, they would be household names. But for some time, we’ve had songs that are easy to sing, along with a nice music video and presence instead of originality and creativity.

      • Who got time searching whats new,when its prob a carbon copy of a carbon copy of the original icons,Ill stick to UTube (Billie,Ella,Sara,Nina,Aretha,Chaka,Deniece,Minnie,Whitney,Anita,Sade)

        • That’s my point. Had it not been for YouTube and at one time, college radio, I would’ve never heard of these people. When I listen to older acts, some of the newer people come up on the feed. It’s your right not to want to search but there are some people who are curious and most of the time, happy they discovered an act not heard on the radio. And many, like J*Davey, have their own unique sound.

    5. Dionne Warwick sure isn’t iconic. Whitney, Patti, Aretha, etc.. not her. Her own songs didn’t even become known until other people sung them. Hate Beyonce all you want but girlfriend is selling out stadiums

      • She’s not hating on Beyoncé or anyone, she told her truth..
        It doesn’t have to agree with you or I
        I just happen to agree with her and Ms.Warwick is Iconic, she have some
        of the most beautiful songs produced by Bach and his partner..
        Check your facts and anyone that says anything about Beyoncé is pounced on
        by her stains, that don’t have a life…

        • Guess I can say you don’t have a life either for being a Dionne stan. See how things can go both ways?? I said what I said. Beautiful to you not me, so you basically just made the same type of comment I made earlier. These Warwick fans pouncing on every Warwick comment needs to get a life. That goes for your co-signer too. TTL

          • I wasn’t talking about you at all… I was talking about when anything negative
            comes out on Bey, her stains flood their email, instragram etc…
            I’ve never read in this site anyone on this site act that way..
            Music is a gimmick these days. The look the body etc. it’s not about the music
            Just look back, it wasn’t determined how u look, it was your talent and charisma and they had that.. some were ugly, but we loved their music and live concerts were lived not precorded tracks..

      • If music artist are not in control/own their master recordings ( à la prince,sam cooke,ray charles curtist mayfield & a very few others )your kissing azz

      • No, she just gobbled up every Dick they threw in her Face back in the Day to be put on…

        That Bitch sounds like she is having a stroke in every song she EVER made.

        • DANG @Anon19:10. 😂😃😀🤗😆😅😥😃😆😂😁😀😂😃😆😅😄😂😀😆😆😀

    6. SATANIC “BEY” AND SPIRIT COOKING “JAY”…ALEISTER CROWLEY’S WICKED BLOOD OUT OF SKULL SIPPING…CHILDREN !

    7. The Seabiscuit fans are so mad right now. 🤣😆 Why tho?

      Look, a lot of music is plastic and dumbed down now. It is what it is. It’s fast food music. It’s not real, so the impact isn’t there. Just enjoy your happy meal and KIM. Trying to defend that hot garbage juice won’t work.

      • Most current day black artist are not worried about legacy,uplifting(black ppl)the masses,producing non degrading,positivity music,only their bags smh…. karma #boycott

    8. RECORD COMPANIES ARE TO BLAME… LAME ASS A&Rs ARE RESPONSIBLE. TECHNOLOGY IS TO BLAME. YOU HAD TO HAVE TALENT AND CLASS BEHIND THAT SOUNDPROOF GLASS… NOW ALL YOU NEED IS SUPER ENGINEER AND A FAT ASS.

    9. To all you Fuckers who think these Old Bitches have Class…GTFOHWTBS.

      They had to get on their knees just like these Ratchet Hos Out here today, the only difference is they made them take charm classes to know how to act like a lady, but they were still on their knees like the dudes and chicks of today still are.

      Taking a class to learn class still doesn’t take away the fact you have to ho/sell your soul to be in that industry…THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE!!!

      • Even if that’s true, it doesn’t make what she said any less true.

        Maybe these women did dirt behind the scenes, but on the record and in public, they carried themselves like ladies and gave us good music — neither of which most current “artists” can do.

        • I don’t GAF what she said…

          There is NO DIFFERENCE in being a high-priced hohoho or a Fucking Street Walker you Fucking Idiot, no matter how you slice it.

          Gobbling Down Dick for Fme is ALL the SAME!

          • You’re an idiot. She was talking about the music. The comment section brought in personal lifestyle and industry choices.

            From her comments, she ALSO couldn’t give less than a fuck if newer artists are hoing. Her POINT was that their talent isn’t carving out any new positions in the anals of music history.

            Stay on topic, muthafucka.
