Added Instagram user, @d.bakerthemaker.
“Nick Cannon is just talking. He just wants to sound different”
While one Instagram user, @tonybaker, appeared to agree with Cannon’s initial sentiments on who he’d like to see perform.
“I would love to see Bruno. I feel like I’d have more energy. I’m sure Beyonce would be epic.”
Another user, @iamnomercyy, appeared to agree.
“Nick was wrong about Hits, Beyonce has like 23 hit songs and Bruno has 7 number one hits, but‼️ Besides the hits Bruno’s numbers are weyyyyyyy bigger and better than that, he also has 32 singles, he has almost have 82 singles and beyoncé has about 82 singles and bruno only has 32 singles with 3 studio albums and about half of his 82 singles and his numbers are much better…”
However, Instagram user @Kingofstyle1990 defended Beyoncé and questioned the canon of how many hit singles she’s recorded.
“Bruno is incredible, but she has nowhere near the amount of hits as the queen, Beyoncé, Gisele Knowles Carter. Let’s not forget, she also has Destiny’s Child 🔥.. as a solo artist she has 7 #1 albums 🔥…Sold out stadium tours and she is the greatest entertainer alive. Don’t play with her nick…How many hits have you got?!”
Comedian Funny Marko also fired off the comments, directly tagging Cannon.
“@nickcannon let me interview you”
