Is BeyoncéModern-day version of Michael Jackson?

Last night (Tuesday 21st December) Jay-Z (real name) Shawn Carter) jumped into a Twitter Space with Alicia Keys. During the “Empire State of Mind” artists’ conversation, Jay-Z He began to give his wife, Beyoncé, her flowers–even comparing her to Michael Jackson, the “King of Pop.” Jay-Z stated:

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

He added:

“Beyoncé is gonna be one of the best singers we ever heard because she is such a student.”

Jay-Z This was specifically the case Beyoncé‘s 2018 Coachella performance, which is often referred to as “Beychella.” The performance was considered highly significant, as the Houston native was the first Black woman to headline the predominately white festival. During her set, she also paid tribute to HBCU culture.

While on the subject, it’s worth pointing out that the very first Coachella festival went down in 1999 became an annual event beginning in 2001–right around the same time that Michael Jackson stopped releasing new music (his last studio album was 2001’s Invincible).
