Ms. Jaie “vs.” Beyoncé – Nigerian Singer covers the American R&B/Pop Star’s Song “Resentment”



Ms. Jaie & Beyonce - August 2013 - BellaNaija

I bet you never expected this “battle”, but here we are.

Nigerian chanteuse Ms. Jaie is proving her vocal prowess by covering a song  by Queen B, Beyoncé.

The song Resentment is from the American R&B/Pop star’s second studio album B’Day.

I am HUGE HUGE Beyoncé fan, hell I am even part on the Bey Hive community, so I was a bit taken aback when I saw the video but Ms. Jaie really tried.

Check it out!

    Ms jaie tried but her voice is not as powerful as Ms. Knowles. In fact the guitar was overpowering Msjaie’s voice so much that I could really hear now.
    The difference is very crearrr

      you ppl need to learn on how to apprecite raw talent and
      home talent. before B had the voicee she has, she went thru a 1000
      vocal coaches. we need to encourage our own talent first. hate it
      or love it is just my opinion

      I agree to what you said and for me its basic reason why Ms Jaie shouldn’t even be compared to Queen b in the first place.. she still got some way to go, but good potentials.

      And then just cos everyone one is going barbie pink doesn’t mean we all have to! #my small observation

      u all know what a “cover’ is, right? P.S, she is singing without a microphone and without backup.

    heya I did not know ms Jaie had nice voice like this…nobody beats Queen B but babe tried. She needs to work on her breathing while singing and she will be stronger vocally when singing. Oh very nice!

    Ms Jaie did a great job but I feel it would have been better if the guitar was turned down a little..

    Beyoncé has had way more years in the game (since childhood) and has perfected her craft. Plus she strikes me as someone that jealously guards all the tools she needs to remain at the top including not engaging in a lifestyle that would bring her down like others and destroy her voice, i.e., Whitney Houston. With that said, Ms. J can also climb to the top. She has the basic and just needs coaching and packaging. Anything is possible.

    wow!!!!..i never thought she could actually sing,i thought she was one of those nigerian artistes that are just show and no substance….her voice is SUPER BEAT!!!!

    Just so you know, Beyonce wasn’t the first or original singer, Posh Spice (Yeah, Victoria Beckham) also recorded the song, as well as singer Jasmine Sullivan.

    Why do I always feel Beyounce is highly overrated? She keep
    touring with no song on her radar…Brandy still remain the best
    for me,she got the prowess,but not much publicity!

    Okay, the girl can blow. I was waiting to see if she’d sound as good in a lower register and if she can cross registers fluidly – that’s the one thing Bey does effortlessly, so I checked her out on youtube. That Kilon poppin song is fire!! How did ever did I miss that?

    • jane

      August 28, 2013 at 4:15 pm

      honestly!!! that kilon popping song is POPPING! its such a jam,i don’t even know if it got enough airplay

    • whocares

      August 28, 2013 at 8:48 pm

      that kilon popping song.. the beat is from 9ice’s “buje budanu ” song.. but thats not even the issues, was 9ice sampling another song as well? if so who knows the song? or did she just pilfer his beat?

  29. fumss

    August 28, 2013 at 12:17 pm

    INSULT!!!! she has such guts to even compare herself to Queen Bey !!! that ms jaie must have issues trying to crack this naija music industry , U for mention ur fellow naija sistas make dey shpw you the real meaning of respect….

    • Temi

      August 28, 2013 at 12:50 pm

      your just stupid how did singing a cover make Ms J disrespect Bey?, it’s called paying respect… you fool!

    i honestly think she is really good. tone and all. i appreciate the fact that she can sing fast. BUT i dunno if its because the guitar was loud but it didn’t carry the extra soul but again she was too camera conscious.
