MJ - No Other Singer Comes Close

Don’t compare Justin Timberlake to Michael Jackson, especially at this time when Jackson has just left us. Timberlake is nowhere near Jackson.

When you say King of Pop, it’s not about who is dominating the pop music world right now. It’s about who made the pop music scene what it is today.


Before Jackson, there was no one person good at both singing and dancing. He came and artistes who came after him realized they have to do both to be a pop idol.


Billy Jean was the first music video from a black artist to get played on MTV. Jackson broke the color barrier in the music industry before Obama did in the politics. Give him credit for that!


He was also the first artiste to incorporate complex story lines and dance techniques into a music video, transforming it from a promotional tool into an art form.


Before him, a music video was a just a video showing the singer singing to the camera. Don’t forget his trademarks – the moonwalk, toe-stand, 45-degree lean, the spins, the crotch grabbing, the fedora, the glove, the armband. Jackson started them all.


Lastly, Jackson wrote and composed almost all of his songs. He co-produced his solo albums and he co-choreographed his dance routines. (Elvis Presley, who was called The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, did not compose or write his songs).

Michael Jackson has the best selling album of all time. No other artiste has ever come close to his fame and achievements.

MJ will always be legendary for the music he has brought to us and to our children.
He lives beyond his music realm.

Friends are too important not to have :)
