I’ve seen the video 1000 times and only realised a couple of weeks ago, that if you look at the bald guy dancing behind her, he accidentally slaps the girl beside him in the face. Then he turns around and is like “oh, I’m sorry”😂
I love The Weeknd, but no. Chris Brown is very influenced by MJ, some of his songs have sampled MJ’s music. Also, at the 2007 VMA’s Chris danced to MJ’s music and copies his dance moves. Not that he’s going to be the next MJ either, but he’s very influenced.
