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.
