Don’t freaking bring up Michael Jackson & Drake in the same sentence unless you’re gonna tell facts on how MJ is the blueprint and Drake doesn’t even make the paper— #MJInnocent 🕊 (@weloveyoumore_) August 9, 2020

The only person that can compare to Michael Jackson in success as an artist is Drake... and that’s fuckin wild because soon drake will surpass, if he hasn’t done so already in an unanimous decision— NBA YOUNGBOY ➐ (@GGYOUNGBOY416) August 6, 2020
Some musicians shouldn’t be compared to other people because they are so original. Michael Jackson , Mariah Carey, Drake, The Weeknd, Prince. They are all in a lane of their own.— BlackJag (@BlackJag19) August 2, 2020
