Is The Weeknd our generation's Michael Jackson?

Recommended Posts

I think they sound very much alike vocally. However Weeknd's Super Bowl performance was very underwhelming imo. Plus he is not acclaimed the same way as Michael. But vocally speaking i would say yes. But ofc he is not in that same league with MJ, Presley, Beatles, Rolling Stones. I don't see any contemporary artist being in that league regardless of how many Grammies they have "earned". Kanye, Beyoncé, Rihanna, Swift and Gaga are not up there either imo, despite their great sales :truthtea_sips_britney_2011_ff_femme_fatale_red_mug_spill:.

Nothing comes close to Heal The World, Earth Song, Billie Jean etc. Thriller as a song i think is not as amazing as everybody seems to think but that's just me i guess :yesokay_britney_blush_blink:

Well he can’t dance, isn’t iconic, a boring performer, his music isn’t anywhere near as good as MJ’s so I’m going to say no :jl_jamie_lynn_awkward_cringe_eek:

Honestly his new stuff is fun ig but his old stuff was do much better imo. His old stuff was different and poetic. New stuff follows the same formula as EVERYONE THE **** ELSE. Makes me sad

UMM NOOOO! Don’t get me wrong, I love The Weeknd. He’s a great artist. But he does not have the influence that Michael has, nor has he had any groundbreaking moments that sets himself apart.

There will never be another Michael. Just like there will never be another Madonna, Britney, Mariah.
