“I wouldn’t say we were friends,” he said. “To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.”
It’s easy to see why Miguel sees himself in competition with Frank Ocean and feels the need to assert his dominance vis-a-vis Frank. Not only is Frank Ocean an extraordinary talent and one of the most highly regarded R&B singers in the world, him and Miguel always drop their shit at the same time. Miguel dropped his debut album All I Want Is You in 2010 three months before Ocean released nostalgia, Ultra, and then he dropped Kaleidoscope Dream in 2012 two months after Ocean release Channel Orange. Now Miguel just dropped WILDHEART last week and Ocean’s upcoming project should be out later this summer.
What do you make of Miguel’s comments?
