The crownless king of Pop Michael Jackson has been an inspiration to many legendary singers including Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Chris Brown, Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, and many more. These fans of MJ themselves have been compared to MJ many times to which they responded differently to the media.
Recently, the “Loyal” star Chris Brown was seen giving an interview to the Big Boy TV, in which he was told that often people compare him to Jackson, in fact, they think he is better than Jackson, to which he expressed on such statements as bragging or lying. He further commented that without MJ, he wouldn’t be able to “breathe or sing”. He even gave a huge statement saying, “He is light years ahead. There is no competing with him.” Such statements by Brown show the connection he bears with and the emotional attachment he has with his inspiration, MJ.
He was called for the interview as his album Breezy is soon going to be launched and such questions are usually asked by the hosts and media, as on platforms like YouTube and other video streaming websites, it is frequently observed that people see a reflection of Jackson in Chris. Especially his smooth dance moves remind them of MJ’s magical dance performances on stage and in the music videos.

Not just in this interview but Brown has been showing his ultimate respect through his words and tributes for a long time after Jackson’s death. That’s an ultimate truth that the legacy of Michael Jackson has sheltered and nurtured the passion of many vocalists to sing and dance.
