Default Is Chris Brown The Next Michael Jackson?

There will never be anyone who can replace Michael Jackson's Legacy but obviously with this future generation a singer will emerge as the standard in terms of music. Michael was that standard for the entire 80's, and into the very early 90's. The torch was eventually passed on to multiple artists to carry on for the following generation, whether it was R.Kelly, Justin Timberlake, or Usher.


Now as Justin Timberlake finds his own niche of music, experimenting with different sounds and focusing efforts on TV and Fashion. R.Kelly feeds his fanbase, but struggles to erase his past. Usher begins to move solely into R&B rather than Pop.

There seems to be nothing left in the Popular R&B genre, in terms of a total package. Some guys can sing, but they leave A LOT to be desired in terms of performances. Other guys are very capable entertainers who's ability to dance makes up for their lack of vocal ability.

Chris Brown is one of the few Total packages ever in this genre, I have a feeling he will only get better as he matures and begins to find his niche in music.

Michael didnt hit his musical stride until Off The Wall was released when he was 21, Chris Brown is only 20. I have a feeling this next album will be Chris Brown's "Off The Wall" obviously for the next generation of music.

CB the next Mike, nope. He can dance, but his singing is nothing to go over board about.

Usher is/was the closest thing to MJ (and he was still far away) but his time has gone.

I hope that was sarcasm you fking idiot. Do you realize how big was MJ when he was CB age? you kids crack me up. Tell me when CB does something original, oh crap i forgot he lives off copying MJ. This CB/Usher/justin/ are just crappy imitators. God damn some of you ish idiots crack me up Michael Jackson just set the bar too high for anyone to reach. CB is only known in the USA, ask people all over the world and and ask them do you know CB? they will just say no. As far as music in concern, HELL NO.

No one will ever get close to MJ. You have to take into account that MJ wasn't just big in R&B or Pop; one can argue that MJ was in his own genre. That's the only way I can explain his world wide fame. I don't see Chris Brown ever reaching global popularity, at least not the way MJ did.

Shouldn't this be about the next Ike Turner?

Good & Bad.

Its good from the standpoint that hes picking up on a genre where grown folks R&B is hard to find, I have no problem calling Usher The current King of R&B. Hes always been a talented artist, but at 32 this is where he belongs in his own realm.

Its bad from the standpoint he will never become universally respected as an artist, Hes not making music with the intention to cross boundaries and genres to show his talent, Hes making music for a specific older audience where although hes talented he will never be viewed among the All Time Greats in this genre.

I think he had a chance to be a mega star and he blew it. Will take him several years of churning out hit after hit to even get close the level he is at right now.

Thats not comparable, Jackson began at 10 years old while Brown began at 16.

Im referring to solo work specifically, Jackson's solo albums pre-Off The Wall laid the foundation for his career to come. Chris Brown's solo albums so far have laid the foundation for the rest of his career.

Chris Brown pre-21 has 9 singles to crack the Top 10 of the Billboard.

His legal issues mean absolutely nothing, all that matters is the music. Thats the same argument I would use for any artist from Ray Charles to Michael Jackson.
