Okay I read the interview where Miguel had made the comment that he made better music than Frank Ocean. I believe this was in response to Frank Ocean winning that Grammy over him last year. Correct me if I’m wrong.
So I saw somebody ask who was better between Frank Ocean and Miguel. While scrolling through the comments I saw someone throw The Weeknd’s name into the ring as well. I initially didn’t participate because I honestly didn’t know. I decided to pose this question on my Facebook page and got a lot of different responses. I enjoy this because listening to other people’s points and opinions gives me much to think about when trying to decide whose music I actually enjoy more.
It seems like the general opinion likes Miguel, but I think this mostly because he just released an album last week. Which isn’t exactly fair because Frank Ocean and The Weeknd are supposedly putting out new albums this summer…
But I’ll work with what I have to try and figure out who exactly I like the most….
Frank Ocean (The Tortured Soul)
I am literally listening to channel orange right now! I LOVE THIS ALBUM!! He is a genius!! This man is so talented! Pyramids is one of my favorite songs of all time. The thing I like about Frank is his songs are so different. He is not afraid to sing about him falling in love with a man, or a girl, or whatever the hell he’s talking about. You can tell he is speaking his truth and that just resonates with me… Rumors have it, he’s releasing a new album sometime this month. It’s supposedly titled “Boys don’t cry”
Miguel (New R&B)
Out of the three of these artists, I think Miguel is the closest to a traditional R&B artist. He does have the best voice and his music is so catchy! Not to mention the lyrics! He has mastered the art of being raunchy without coming off as disrespectful! *Ques Pussy is mine* His second album Kaleidoscope Dream is everything!! EVERYTHING! Sadly I am not feeling his latest album as much but these things often grow on me so we’ll see.
The Weeknd (Emo R&B)
Okay so it took me a minute to get into The Weeknd but once I did I was hooked!! There is not a single song by him that I have not loved! And that’s saying a lot! Miguel is clearly the “sexy music” but I cannot lie and say the Weeknd’s music doesn’t take you there as well! Earned it, Wicked Games….whew Enough said! His style is so original and different that it’s hypnotizing. If that makes sense. Sadly though I have heard that he is not the greatest live performer. I guess I’ll find out at Made in America in September. His new album is titled “Beauty Behind The Madness” and babaaaeeee I can’t wait! August 28th!
See I say all of that to say I still don’t know who my favorite is lol Currently I think I would have to go with The Weeknd (at least until Frank drops another album and I give Miguel’s another listen) But nonetheless my summer will be amazing! Given that all 3 will have new albums out by September!
We’ll revisit this then lol
What do you think?
