I’m torn! Miguel was very recently interviewed by the U.K.’s Sunday Times where he stated he believes he makes better music than Frank Ocean, who he actually ran into at a hotel bar in London during the interview (Kylie, he’s alive!).
Miguel is quoted saying, ‘To be completely honest—and no disrespect to anyone—I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.”
I keep going back and forth in my head as to who I think makes better music. Miguel incorporates funk, hip hop, and edgy styles into his jams, while Ocean’s music features unconventional melodies that hover between speech and song.
Both are considered to be in the new wave of R&B and tend to sing about the same topics – love and nostalgia to name a few. And when they both hit that falsetto! I just can’t decide, you guys.
What do yinz think?!
