Whose ‘Man’ Is Better? Monica’s Or Jazmine Sullivan’s?

It's always interesting when you hear a song's demo and it is just as good if not better than the song that ended up being released. Which brings us to our next Battle of the Beats. In this corner we have Monica, who has staged one of the more impressive comebacks of 2010 with her album Still Standing, which features the song "If You Were My Man." And in this corner we have Jazmine Sullivan's demo of "If You Were My Man" that has me scratching my head trying to figure out why she didn't keep it for herself. Produced by Missy Elliott--who won't let you forget it with her borderline obnoxious hollering throughout both tracks--the two songs are exactly the same, even down to the rap near the end. This battle is going to come down to who you think sang this track built on top of Evelyn "Champagne" King's '80s hit "Betcha She Don't Love You" the best. So whose "Man" gets your vote, SoulBouncers?

  1. Although I love Jazmine as an artist, Monica did a better job.

  2. Damn.......I listened to Monica's version 1st & I came away from it not even liking the Then I turned on Jazmine's & now I like the That says it all, even though of course Monica is an amazing vocalist in her own right.

  3. Love Jaz...however...I give it to Monica on this one...though I'm certain more work was put into Monica's version than Jasmine's, since it was a demo afterall...nevertheless still appreciate both versions though...

  4. yeah I prefer Monica's also...

  5. i like monica's better

  6. fit monica better

  7. although jazmine is very talented i have go with monica all the way

  8. Not really into the song but like Monica's better. Jasmine's version sounds like a cover...and i listened to her's first.

  9. Wow! I'm feeling the song, but I think I'm on the fence with whose version I like better. Love Monica's voice, but also feeling Jazmine's hook and chorus.

  10. I really love Monica, because there isn't a song she can't sing!! The way she sings make you feel like you told her to sing what the hell you are feeling but you can't get through them until they hear it from her voice!!! That's my girl....
