it hard to say.

when you say artists, prince is def more artistic. not only can he sing for real, entertain, he plays all them instruments.

mike can sing and entertain but he cant see prince when it comes to the singing.

not to slight mike, cuz i been a fan since a kid, hell both them get played by me daily on my playlist. its something about mike that when any kid hears the music...they become attached to it like its disney or mcdonalds.

but mike can sing, id compare him to a better version of chris brown vocally. chris cant sing to me, id group him with jennifer lopez and britney spears vocally. u dont hear them fools singing for real. singing for real to me is holding a note effortlessly and stretching the voice.

the thing that seperates mike from other was just all that he embodied. He's like a one man show brehs, he sings, writes and dances like nobody else. hes engaging. i cant think of too many songs where i can be like you this n*gga got pipes.



heres a lil treat for yall

Mike better singer, dancer, writer.

Prince better musician, instrumentalist.


It all boils down imo to who made the better sounding songs and imo it's MJ hands down by a mile.

Prince. He's a gifted musician and actual talented song writer. MJ owed his career/greatest hits to greater minds like Quincy Jones. Granted MJ had a showmanship that no artist has been able to match, but musically Prince is the better artist.

I like both artists. their music is good. I grew up listening to MJ. Performance wise, I think prince does a better job and plays longer and can play instruments. Singing wise, MJ is talented.

I got to see prince few months ago in Austin, TX (samsung private party) and was gonna go see mj until he k!lled himself.

stability point of view, Prince takes it, hes classy, and charming, and still healthy today.

Should not be compared, honestly. But I will say Prince is a musician and composer *so if I had to *choose...Prince. Mike is the greater entertainer

I agree with your post but there is only one problem and it is that Michael was the better singer.

I mean you hear how high he can sing.

This also may be a point

I said this too in my initial argument on here that sparked the creation of this post, although I perfer MJ. They both can't really be compared because there so good at what they do and do different things.

Michael Jackson. Compare him to anyone and that will always be my answer.

Just the moonwalk move>>>>>>>> Anything Prince ever done. You don't see millions of kids and adults trying to do prince. Stop reaching trying to compare the two.

Heres where you fail. MJ didnt create the Moonwalk originally known as the backslide. So...your post fails. It would be different if he didn tbut he didnt.

The thing that is intriguing to me about this comparison is the vocals. A few people have said Prince is the better vocalist but most have said Mike and also cited range as one of the reasons. Then even going further by saying Prince isn't even close to MJ as a vocalist. Interesting...

Those of you saying Mike is the better vocalist, I wouldn't be so quick to say that. His natural tone probably goes higher, but Prince's falsetto is VERY strong and it goes to the sky, and he can go lower than Mike.

I would even say Prince has more power. MJ has the better tone/timbre, but Prince is a superior vocalist otherwise.

So can Charles Hamilton?

That doesn't mean it will be good.

Word.. Prince is nasty on the guitar.

But does he have the grittyness to do a rock album and be taken seriously

I mean with the make-up and all that sh*t. He would only come off as prince doing a rock album

But it will be dope though
