Is Drake now as big as Michael Jackson or The Beatles at their peaks?

iono man

I just think nobody will ever be as big as Michael Jackson. At least not until 2030-40s maybe. dude damn near a once in multiple lifetimes level of fame and fandom.

drake just ain't there. he the big dog rn. but he just ain't at the level of Mike. I don't even think the Beatles were at his level.

there’s nobody thats been around since that we can even begin to compare him with……

like a critically acclaimed, universally loved justin timberlake only a lot bigger……..

if MJ took a weird looking sh*t and his maid saw it would be front page in every tabloid at the grocery store……..

for a rap star what drake is doing is unheard of tho……

maintaining this level of popularity for so long while never losing his core fanbase or have the public burn out on him uncharted territory for a rapper……..

Drake isn't on MJ level but out of every rapper n*gga.. he is I ain't gon lie. He the only one that got that MJ star power and the only one who real real real real good with them Illuminati n*ggas just like MJ was.. He the only rap star of color that's not Jay or Kanye or Diddy or Dre on some young n*gga sh*t that could pull a MJ move and buy Sony publishing but they'll smoke him.. He may not write all of his sh*t but he definitely the MJ of this sh*t as far as star power wise.. The Weeknd really MJ frfr tho singing-wise and look wise.. But he got a while to go to get on Drake level with the sh*t

He's as big as you can possible be in todays world (other than maybe that group BTS I keepseeing trending, i imagine they are huge)

but the world was different back then, it was simpler times, those dudes were literal "gods' to people


I imagine internet/social media changed that aura that they would have but yet

I'd say Kanye's probably the closest to MJ. I'm not a Kanye fan but dude's a genius.

Thriller and the white album are probably the biggest albums of all time. Drake is huge and has had a very long run but truth be told I’m not sure if he’s bigger than puff daddy or will Smith in 97. And he’s definitely not bigger than prime Eminem or Britney Spears and nsync/back street boys in early 2000’s. Drake is more like the modern day Hov with more mainstream success. I’m not a fan of bro at all but i don’t think any rapper will have a run like him after he hangs it up.

Nah. I remember back in the late 80’s and early 90’s how our family would order food and crowd around the family to watch the new MJ video premier. I know other households did that as well. Drake is a big artist in modern times but I doubt he has the star power to where members of your entire household from various age ranges would make it a family event to watch his latest project. He doesn’t transcend generations.

It snot about being a genius. Kanye is more like Prince especially them being both Geminis. Drake is more a popstar than Kanye and is less a weirdo than Kanye just like MJ was less or a weirdo than Prince. Kanye makes Prince type musix. drake like Mj makes music everybody can actually like.. even old white freemason grandmothers so..
