Jay-Z participated in a Twitter Spaces with his friends Alicia Keys and Rob Markman this Tuesday 21th. Speaking about various aspects of his career and life, the rapper predicted he would have problems at home when comparing his wife, Beyoncé, to the legendary Michael Jackson.
“Bey will be mad about what I’m going to say“, he said before giving his opinion:
“Find for me a show that is culturally relevant and exciting like Coachella (…) Michael Jackson never had a Coachella, she is an evolution of him because she watched him at 9 years old. And the kids are the same. Beyoncé will be one of the best singers we’ve ever heard, because she’s a student”, said the rapper during the chat.

Of course the comparison between two music legends garnered a lot of comments on social media, some netizens agreed with Jay, while others stated that MJ’s legacy is unbeatable.
