As reported by Revolt, Jay-Z suggested that both artists are on the same level, calling Beyoncé an “evolution” of the ’80s R&B artist.

“Bey’s gonna be mad at [me] for saying this, but Michael Jackson never had a Coachella,” he said. “She’s an evolution of him because she watched him at 9 [years old]. And [the kids] are the same.”

“Find me a concert that’s as culturally relevant and thrilling as Coachella,” Jay-Z continued. “Beyoncé is gonna be one of the best singers we ever heard because she is such a student.”

Naturally, fans had a lot to say, ranging from defending Jay-Z’s comments to explaining how the two icons shouldn’t be compared.

Beyonce is one of the greatest entertainers the industry has ever seen and will ever see.

Nobody is operating at the same level as her creatively, as a vocalist, as a visual artist and as a live performer. Not her peers, not her predecessors and not anyone working right now.

Jay Z is comparing Beyonce to Michael Jackson when it comes to Coachella, but Michael left before various ave of digital streaming were created. He was pulling Coachella’s reaction at any given concert without social media and entertainment platforms.

Beyoncé was pregnant & singin upside down at FWT, pregnant & throwin up when she did glastonbury, sick when she sang her face off at oprah’s show. Michael jackson sprained his ankle & did an entire perfomance sittin down & lipsyncin for his life. the bar is SO low for men.TUH

Arguing about Beyonce and Michael Jackson is just something I feel like we should never do. Just like when people get to comparing Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Some topics are just off limits because it never ends well lol
