LA Reid Catches Heat For Recommending Mariah Carey Beyonce Verzuz

Legendary music exec LA Reid thinks he knows who should be next on the Verzuz stage.

“My ideal one, you really want this? It’s Mariah Carey versus Beyoncé. Bring that on!” Reid said onThe Real.

“The [fans] they both have, and the hits they have, the legacies they both have,” continued Reid. “B is the queen, right, sometimes Mariah might be slightly underrated for how long her career has lasted, how many hits she has, and she practically owns Christmas. So I don’t know, I think that would be a good one.”

Twitter wasn't feeling Reid suggestion for two reasons.

First, Mariah and Beyonce aren't really peers, as Carey has been around a lot longer.

Second, Beyonce probably doesn't have the catalog to compete with Mariah. (19 number ones vs. 10)

 

It kind of calls into question how Reid became a legendary music exec.
