Well, this is exactly what I have been arguing in this thread. Just because he did everything himself doesn’t make him better or more talented when we compare the actual quality of their work, which of course is subjective. Just look at their 90s output. Michaels stuff is just a lot better imo. But I do agree that Prince was a talented guy and he could write, produce and play everything by himself. That in itself is a great accomplishment BUT, today we have a lot of artist that can do that. Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, and many many other artists from different genres. Does that mean that all of them are automatically better or more talented than MJ?Prince was a much more talented artist than MJ imo. Prince did everything himself. MJ has the biggest selling album of all time but at the end of the day he was following Quincy's vision. Thats why most people prefer OTW, Thriller and Bad compared to all other MJ albums. MJ also needed help with music videos eg hiring John Landis. Prince was able to independently steer his career with his personal vision.
