On Saturday, Chicago native Chance The Rapper gave a surprise plug to the Lemonade singer, but claims that she is better than Michael Jackson?
We’re NOT sure where Chance The Rapper pulled this out of, but we beg to differ on his statement regarding Beyonce being better than Michael Jackson. Read on…
During Chance The Rapper’s commencement speech to Dillard University in New Orleans, delivered hope and purpose to the students.
The only problem is that, in the middle of his speech, Chance The Rapper compared Beyonce to Michael Jackson! His comparison will surely raise eyebrows with music purists.
Beyonce is great, but she is NOT Michael Jackson or better than him. She stands in her own lane just like Madonna, Elton John, Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin, Whitney and so on.
However, Chance The Rapper feels otherwise saying:
In that instance, I realized something. I realized that all of us have a responsibility to be greater than the people who came before us. We have a responsibility to be not as good as them, or to live up to their example, but to actually surpass them, even when it seems scary.
Then he dropped the bomb.
We have to overcome that fear and be greater than our role models,” says Chance. “Beyoncé’s performance was better than any performance Michael Jackson ever did. That woman, better than Mike. Black woman, better than Mike.
“Beyoncé’s [Coachella] performance was better than any performance Michael Jackson ever did.”
