Michael Jackson has been dubbed as the King of Pop and there are very good reasons for that. Jackson’s contributions to the music world cannot be understated and even after his passing, his music continues to break records.
Last month, Billboard asked fans who was bigger in their prime and asked fans to choose between Drake and Michael Jackson. Drake fans made reference to the fact that ‘Certified Lover Boy’ broke Michael Jackson’s Billboard Hot 100 record for the most top 10 hits from one album. Certified Lover Boy claimed nine of the chart’s top 10 spots, eclipsing MJ’s previous record of seven from 1982’s Thriller.
On the other hand, Michael Jackson fans referred to the fact that Jackson still has the best-selling album of all time as ‘Thriller’ has sold over 100 million copies worldwide.
While speaking to TooFab, Michael Jackson’s son Prince Jackson decided to end the debate and stated that his late father is the better of the two.
“I mean, everybody has their own definition of great, and all respect to Drake for everything that he does. But what my father and my family accomplished in the time that they did it, is very unlikely never to be matched again.”
There is certainly weight to what Prince Jackson said as Michael Jackson truly was a one of a kind artist and no one could ever emulate his success.
