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

In this low stat era.. he's MJ. You dumb my n*gga. Aint nobody selling 33 mill off one album my n*gga. MJ came out when the internet wasn't mainstream and there was like 10 artists out. He was seeing a lot of bread and a lot of numbers. Everybody hatin now so nobody buyin records like that so they have to fake the numbers to mimic the past and keep that perception not because they have to.. anyways.. sstop arguing with me

No one is arguing with ur dumb a*s

Just like Nikki Minaj breaking one of Aretha Franklin's records, Drake breaking records set by The Beatles or MJ doesn't mean he's as big a of an artist as them.

Every song on an album can be purchased as a single and the amount of times each song on the album is streamed counts towards record sales.

You can't compare that to an era when record companies had to send big a*s vinyl records to radio stations and pump a ton of $ to push a single.

You were lucky for a label to push 3 singles off of an album back then.

He hasn't transcended and held the publics attention like any of those other stars. He is a music star and top-3 rapper (fame-wise), but not a transcendent superstar like Jordan, Jackson, Tyson, Ali, Beatles, etc

Also I'd argue he's not controversial at all...you don't see parents and kids f*ghting over whether or not they can listen to Drake, or him taking a stand like Ali

No harm, no foul. Until I see a sea of people going crazy for Drake without any of his music playing, or even fainting in mid performance he isnít in the MJ tier. He might be one of the most successful acts since MJ. But thatís about it.

Beatles, MJ, and Garth Brooks are on a complete other level from everyone else. I think I read that Brooks has 9 diamond records, which is unreal.

outside of presidents or world leaders, Michael Jackson might've been the most famous person to have ever lived.

Nope. Some of us fu*k with Drake. But nope. Only one of these artist had an army as security when he went to a different country.
His concerts were Coachella and Lalapalooza. n*gga had grown men passing out. Shiid!! Jesus might have passed out if he was there too

I'm the biggest stan of both of these guys but you boys are shooting up dog food thinking Drake or anyone for that matter is as big or will ever be as big as Michael. Now if you wanna say Drake is the closest thing we've seen since Michael in terms of success then definitely but beyond that y'all n*ggas tripping

Damn, n*ggas slapped OP to the shadow realm just for copy and pasting this

But to answer ya question fu*k the Beatles, them soy boys always been overrated in my opinion.

As far as MJ goes, ain't no way, Drake is on an amazing run and I fw dunn, but you gotta be fr when you talk about the choke MJ had on earth as a whole, mass suicides happened when he died, I don't like to hypothesize death on anyone, but if Drake dies tomorrow people aren't blowing their dome off by the dozen over it. MJ had hundreds if not thousands of people who dedicated their lives to being his fan over a decade after he stopped dropping music, we talking sold everything they had and followed him state to state country to country, and then kicked the chair when he died. Drake nice but, ain't no surpassing that. It'll probably be 2060+ before we see someone get the level of universal love MJ hit

Could y’all imagine Michael Jackson sitting courtside at an NBA game? That game would stop right when he walked in…his security would need a section.

I personally believe that MJ is the most famous human being who lived in our lifetime. Not just musician but I mean more than any athlete, actor, or world leader. I also say when you say the name Jackson he comes to mind first. Quincy Jones was literally around so long that he was friends with Ray Charles and is the owner of Vibe magazine and HIS magnum opus was thriller. MJ was on MTV at a time that no other black people were. MJ basically created the whole music videos being like mini movies. MJ got a whole Disneyland attraction. This guy was on Simpsons when Simpsons mattered.

Don't compare Mike to a guy who constantly references him, samples him, dressed like him etc.
