Porsha Williams Vs. Syleena Johnson: Who Sang “Perfectly Worthless” Better?

April 10, 2014  |  

Earlier this week we told you Porsha Williams was out here track jacking, trying to get her musical career to pop. But it didn’t really work out to her advantage. Songwriter Pierre Medor’s publicist not only said Porsha didn’t have the right voice for the song but stated flat out that it was unfortunate that “Porsha has chosen to create another delusional marriage with this song by airing it and claiming to have taken part in its creation.” 


Ultimately Pierre decided that song would be better suited for Syleena Johnson and her vocal abilities and it will appear on her upcoming studio album Chapter 6: Couples Therapy. Just like the rest of us, Syleena saw Porsha singing the song on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and said, in an interview with The Jazmine Brand that she was and still is confused.

Check out a few highlights from the interview.

theJasmineBRAND.com: Were you surprised at all that Porsha allegedly took ‘Perfectly Worthless’, a song that you have on your new album?
Syleena: I was surprised to hear the song on her show. I am/was confused maybe, but not really anything else.

Are you concerned at all that the single will loose momentum because of Porsha’s version? 

I am not concerned about the momentum because it is a great song. Great songs will break thru. The people will make the call.

Have you had a chance to speak with Porsha to clear the air?

No I haven’t spoken to Porsha,  but I’m sure she’s a nice person.  I don’t think she had me in mind when she decided to drop this as her single….I hope 🙂

It’s nice to see Syleena handling this situation with such class. She could have went clean off like Pierre decided to do but what would that solve? Instead, it’s just better to let her vocal ability speak for itself. Take a listen to both Porsha and Syleena’s versions below and let us know who sang it better.

A snippet of Porsha’s version

And Syleena’s full version of the song. 

You already know what it is. This song is beautiful and Syleena killed it. But to Porsha’s credit, I will say that it wasn’t half bad and I would have loved to see what she did with those falsetto notes.
