Chris Brown Responds to Michael Jackson Comparisons

Chris Brown Responds to Michael Jackson Comparisons

Chris Brown is calling cap on the Michael Jackson comparisons.

For years, the internet has tried to compare the talents of the two superstars, with some even suggesting that Chris is better than the King of Pop.

But while some fans may argue otherwise, Chris is shutting down the comparisons. “That’s cap,” he immediately responded when Big Boy brought up the topic during an interview to promote his new album Breezy.

When asked how he deals with the conversations, he responded, “I stay the hell up out of it. I’ma keep it a hundred. I kinda back off it.”

He gave props to his idol for inspiring him and said he will never be able to compete. “My personal take on it is I wouldn’t even be breathing or even be able to sing a song if that man didn’t exist,” he said. “I don’t know if they look at it as a Jordan-Kobe thing, but I couldn’t even look at it. He’s light years ahead. There is no competing with him.”

Chris revealed that he has “shrines of this man hanging up in my house,” adding, “Hell no, I ain’t better than him.”

The CB-MJ debate was recently reignited following a viral tweet from Ryan Clark. “Chris Brown is more talented than Michael Jackson… there I said it! Have a great week,” tweeted the former NFL star before social media weighed in on the controversial statement.

This is not the first time Chris has drawn comparisons to his idol. In 2019, 50 Cent declared CB “better than MJ.”

Justin Bieber has also celebrated his “Don’t Check On Me” collaborator, likening Brown to a combination of Jackson and Tupac Shakur. “Everyone wants to wait til people die To give them the credit they deserve,” said Bieber. “I’m calling it now when CB passes away after a long full life, you will miss what you had in front of you the whole time … trust me watch you will see.”

During the Big Boy interview, Chris once again weighed in on a potential Verzuz. In the past, he said that he was only interested in battling himself, however, that may have changed.

“I’ma keep it a hundred. I’ve been talking to the people so we might figure something out but I ain’t gon’ say nothing yet,” he teased.

Drake Responds to Album Critics: ‘We Wait for You to Catch Up’

Drake is setting the trends.

On Friday, the Toronto rapper released his surprise seventh studio album Honestly, Nevermind featuring dance and house music. But not everyone was a fan of his new sound, which was a noticeable departure from his previous hip-hop-heavy albums.

Social media weighed in with their thoughts, sharing memes and jokes about Drake’s surprising sound.

“I thought Drake was finna rap his ass off. He gave us Forever 21, Hot Topic, H&M ass music,” tweeted one person, while another joked, “Drake got my hips swaying like a bad bitch.”

Drake apparently heard the feedback and has a message for all those who aren’t fans of his new direction. A video surfaced online in which he responds to the criticism. According to Drake, he’s just ahead of the curve and his critics will soon catch up to his wave.

“It’s all good if you don’t get it yet,” he said. “That’s what we do. We wait for you to catch up.”

Added Drake, “We caught up already. On to the next.”

Drake worked with producers like Black Coffee, Gordo, Rampa, and Alex Lustig to craft his new album, which was a labor of love. “It took us about six, seven months to make, maybe,” he said during his new SiriusXM show “Table for One.” “And something that I always wanted to do. I don’t really wanna overexplain it, I just wanna play it ’cause it’s just a bunch of music that I love.”

But for those who don’t like “dance” Drake, they may be happy to know that he’s working on his next project. “I got another Scary Hours pack coming too, in a little bit,” he said. “I’m gonna slap some head tops off with the Scary Hours pack. I love this shit.”

Honestly, Nevermind is breaking new ground and records for Drake. In just one hour, the 14-track album has become the biggest dance album in Apple Music history with the most first-day streams worldwide.

Kendrick Lamar Travels to Ghana, Talks New Album in Spotify Documentary

Kendrick Lamar journeys to Ghana for the first time in his new mini-documentary for Spotify.

Following the release of his chart-topping album Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, the global superstar visited Accra for “A Day in Ghana with Kendrick Lamar.” He immersed himself in the culture and imparted some words of wisdom on his young fans.

While the internet was busy dissecting his newest body of work, Kendrick was enjoying himself on the beach. “I couldn’t even tell you what day it is,” he said. “I’m just being in the moment. This life shit, it’s all about an experience. And everybody got they own different experience.”

In the four-minute clip, he also visited Ghana’s Freedom Skatepark, which is dedicated to Virgil Abloh, who had been involved in the development as a Ghanaian ambassador.

In between snapping selfies with fans, the reclusive rapper opened up about Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, calling it his “most present” project to date.

One of his favorite lines on the album is on “Father Time” where a female voice says, “You really need some therapy,” and he responds, “Real ni**a need no therapy.”

Kendrick reveals that it was a struggle to change his mind state. “That’s how ni**as feel. We grew up where our parents don’t know about that,” said Kendrick. “You live and you experience this shit that you go through and you deal with it right then and there, or you don’t never deal with it.”

But he was able to rise to the challenge. “Shit, that’s like a whole new step in a whole new generation. It’s growth.”

The film ends with him reflecting on life. “This life shit, it’s all about an experience. And everybody got they own different experience,” he said while sitting on the sandy shore. “Everything that we do out here, everything that we say, everything that’s been done is all a representation of all of us.”
