Brown responds to the internet debate over which artist is better


Several decades separate Chris Brown and Michael Jackson. Still, some listeners notice similarities between these musicians. Brown recently responded to fan comparisons, saying he wouldn’t be able to breathe or even sing a song without the influence of the “Black or White” songwriter.

He doesn’t need advice. Brown is a dancer, singer, graffiti artist and actor. He released songs like “No Guidance”, “Under the Influence” and “Call Me Every Day”, earning millions of Spotify plays in the process.

With 20 Grammy nominations to his name, Brown won the Grammy for Best R&B Album in 2012.

Some fans have drawn comparisons between Chris Brown and Michael Jackson

During a BET Award show, Brown even paid tribute to MJ, including a choreographed dance to “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Billie Jean,” and other hit songs. As two performers who dance and sing on stage, some have noticed similarities (and differences) between Brown and Jackson.

Asked about his reaction to Jackson’s comparisons during an interview on BigBoyTV, Brown confirms he’s staying “out of the way” with a chuckle. The musician shared that he thinks it’s a “cap” that listeners compare artists.

“I’m backing off a bit,” he continued in the same interview. “My personal take is that I wouldn’t even be breathing or even be able to sing a song if this man didn’t exist. So I don’t know if they see it as a Jordan/Kobe thing… he is light years away. There’s no competition with him. Surely not.”

The artist added that it is his fearlessness that allows him to perform and be recognized. It is this same fearlessness that propelled the artist into his new era, with the songs “Addicted” and “WE (Warm Embrace)”. Some Reddit users reacted to Brown’s latest interview, most of which agreed on Jackson’s power.

“Just one MJ song has had more influence on the world than Chris Brown’s entire catalog,” one comment said, while another wrote, “I love Michael Jackson, and I love Chris Brown for honoring MJ the whole time.”
