But we're really going to compare Sade's vocals to Mariah's? C'mon ya'll...that's just pure stupidity. Vocals wise, Sade isn't seeing Mariah. I can admit that. Hell, Sade isn't even THAT great of a vocalist if we really want to keep it funky. Overall she's still the GOAT to me because she's much more than just a singer. But I bet if you asked her who was a better singer, Sade herself would say Mariah.
Sade is like prince she is a amazing musician and song writer but a vocal beast she is not.
She sings low, slow and steady, anyone can sing well when they sing like that.
MANY singers out vocal sade
Most singers who hit true whistle register have issues with vocals later on in life. You are lowkey screaming your voice out.
Very few singers have whistle registry, even Whitney in her excellence did not.
Mariah has always tried to preserve her voice, even going as far as not speaking for days.
