Well there is no doubt that these two artist might be the greatest that music has ever seen and although I hate comparing them I personally believe that Michael Jackson might be better than Prince. Especially when it comes down to singing and having the better vocal range and performance. But I know there are many of you who will side with Prince.

The idea for this topic came to me when I was getting into an argument with a user here on Boxden and thought about making a post about it at the time. But I ended up not making it and as they say, better late then never.

So the question is..
Who do you think is the better artist? and why?

Here is three of the biggest hits from both artist...

Michael Jackson




Prince

I'm sorry but Prince doesn't like his msuic on the internet like that so this was the best I could do image

Since we are talking "better artist", this sh*t isn't even close. You can't find a person who doesn't know at least 3 MJ songs...the same certainly cannot be said for Prince.

Better artist?

Prince can play 20+ instruments, but MJ's vocals are on another level.

Both are the GOATs tho

This about it If you put Prince in the Studio by his-self And MJ in one by his-self and ask them to make a Hit Record!!! Who you got??? They have to make their own Beat and Write the Song..

That's somewhat of a myth fam, MJ did write many songs, but yes he also had writers for other songs

Prince was obviously a better writer, he penned verses for many artists

MJ also was a decent beat boxer, came up with some great melodies such as the one for Who Is It

Obviously Prince was more well rounded artist, as far as instruments etc.. But MJ had more hit songs.

They both also hated each other for years, Prince thought he was weird and didn't like how MJ wanted him to be a supporting act for him

Mike is only more famous because
1. He was nurtured as a child into fame.
2. He danced aka entertainer

But as far as this thread goes, Prince was the better artist, musician and had the better vocal range. Just because someone sings in falsetto all the time doesn't mean they have better singing abilities.

But on the low I already have Prince's whole discography. Who got them links to Thriller, Off the Wall, Bad and Invincible?
