Default Who is the best female artist ever?

Objectively, who do you think it is?

For me it's between Kate Bush and Bjork

Not a fan of many.

Either Taylor Swift or Florence and The Machine.

I’m not really a fan of ‘divas’

Well, it’s a bit of a tough question

Many artists have made irrefutable impact on multiple genres and aspects of pop culture, some dominate in songwriting, some in artistry, some in singing ability...

Rihanna has an insanely good and unmatched discrography of worldwide hits (in a relatively short time period too), Mariah and Whitney are some of the most iconic female voices in music. Madonna paced the way for a lot of aspects of pop culture, even if she stole most of hers from ballroom culture. Nicki is the queen of rap and has paved the way for female rap becoming way more mainstream and artists like doja, megan and Cardi being able to thrive as much as they have, similar situation for Lana del Rey and her impact on alternative music. When Lana is being cited as an inspiration from many of today’s main pop girls and most successful alt girls..

Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, Mary J Blige, Lil’ Kim, Beyonce, P!nk. It’s impossible to pick one.

I also think it’s down to your personal taste in music, I don’t listen to Barbra Streisand but can understand and respect that she’s a legend

I can't believe I'm the only person to say Kate Bush so far. I feel she's obvious.

I'd probably say it was a three-way battle between Madonna, Diana Ross and Kate Bush as the figureheads of reinvention, performance, and expressive artistry respectively... but then Dolly Parton and Joni Mitchell deserve mentions too for the country/folk genres.

I think Bjork is sadly too inaccessible to most to be considered, but to music fans would always be in with a shout.

I think Karen Carpenter deserves a mention too, one of the greatest female voices of all time

I agree with this, Barbra is a total legend but not one of my personal faves.

My personal favourites would have to have a diverse collection of music, such as Rihanna, Madonna , Janet Jackson and Aaliyah to name a few..

I do not know.

Matter of opinion/preferance (in terms of what you like in terms of music, talent, likability etc.), I guess.

...I couldn’t really choose one because they’re not really comparable in that way but some mentions are...Kate Bush, as you say, Daniel...Joni Mitchell, obviously...Nina Simone, Aretha, Tina Turner, Mariah Carey, Stevie Nicks, Barbra Streisand, Annie Lennox, Dusty Springfield...Dolly, obviously...Karen Carpenter, Madonna, Whitney...Cher, Etta James...I’m sure lots more as well...

I might be bias but I'm surprised Bjork hasn't been mentioned much, she has to be the most innovative
