Beyonce or Rihanna who has the bigger Name in the Game

Yes and we are back, Happy New Year to all our Mad Music fans,  we took a break last year but now are ready and recharged and plan to keep the posts coming fast and furious. So lets get started we all are in love with Beyonce's controversial "Drunk in Love" song and equally love the emotionally powerful "What Now" by Rihanna so it got us thinking who does the pop and rap game love more. Both are multi-plantinum artists , well respected by fans and artists alike but who has the more respect based on name drops in songs.

Whose name is referenced more in songs, Beyonce  aka "Queen Bey" or Rihana "the Princess of Pop". Well we found a few  examples to stir the deabte and we welcome your suggestions.

First for the Bajan beauty Rhi Rhi
She crossed our musical radar  earlier this year with the Niki Minaj (her friend) reference in the "Give  it to all to Me" Mavado song , Check the lyric at the 1:35 time mark

Then there is a whole song dedicated to Rihanna (the lyrics we don't quite get we didn't know Rhi had a gun) but it sounds good

One of our favourites is  ASAP Rocky's "Fashion Killa" which not only  mentions Rihanna but has her in the in the video (maaaaad) NSFW

Then there are the Beyonce  references 

Big Sean featuring Chris Brown My Last

Add to the list:

Lil Wayne f/ Mannie Fresh “Get Something”

Kanye West “Throw Some D's (Remix)”

Flo Rida “Turn Around”

Kanye West “Everything I Am”

Lil Wayne f/ Babyface “Comfortable” (2008)

The Game f/ Kanye West “Wouldn't Get Far” (3:02 time mark)

We did not include the multiple references made by husband Jay Z in Magna Carter and other albums since they were dating.

Winner just by sheer references and lyrical content Beyonce, ALL HAIL QUEEN BEY.
