Who's going to take the number #1 spot in September? Some say Beyonce, others say Janet. My prediction is that Beyonce's album will enter the charts at number one only to be dethroned by Janet a few weeks later when "Twenty Years Old" is released on the 26th( i.e. the day she and Jermaine will get married?). Meanwhile a battle of the album covers has begun with bloggers taking shots at Beyonce for her "glamour shots" inspired cover. I must say I'm not impressed and the hair is all wrong! I'm not sure what B was going for with this shot but there had to be some better shots in the bunch.
Janet on the other hand is laying me out with her infectious smile! Her cover is simple yet pleasing to the eye, and her camp was smart enough to give her fans a chance to design her album cover, marketing at it's best.
It's almost a little ridiculous that these two artists are even competing against each other. Janet is an icon, and at the end of the day she is everything that Beyonce wants to become.
