Do you have to have a good catalog with classics to be a legacy act? If so, Nicki isn't one.

I said what the fuck I said. A legacy act doesn't automatically mean no longer commercially successful in the present-tense although that's usually the case.
there are clearly varying definitions of this "legacy act" thing and Jay swears there isn't

Fnnfnfnfnf

People in here are defining it differently and that's why there's confusion as to who it should and shouldn't be assigned to

Is that not obvious ?

And that's not shade. I'm trying to think of the Nicki classics and drawing blank. Like the ones that stick like grits. Moment For Life is my fav and is an anthem song admittedly, but All I'm coming up with are my favorite featured verses by her

CHOKE

"Legacy act" is viewed as derogatory in the industry, is it not? :uhh:

Especially for someone who is Brandy's age

Quote from: ivorian oph on May 23, 2023, 11:31:47 AMand i agree that usher IS a legacy act, but i don't think he's really LOOKED AT as such. idk it's hard to explain

Agreed.

It's cause he keeps himself out there. Performing on popular platforms (Tiny Desk) and collaborating with the current generation (City Girls, Summer Walker).

I don't think legacy act has to be bad thing, especially if you have catalogue like Brandy. It's annoying because out of all the girls she came up with she's the only one who's voice and sound really translates to today's radio.

I think it has a new meaning. Very similar to how a Vegas residency has a completely different meaning today than it did when Elvis was doing it.

Maybe that's why I'm so resistant to the term.
Like Usher, Brandy can still have a cute R&B hit and get booked for popular platforms
