(ThyBlackMan.com) When Brown broke into show business as a 16 year old he was described as the future of R&B: the next Michael Jackson, the next big thing. Brown has a smooth singing style, plenty of dance moves and good looks. However, some of the luster was removed from his career when the multimillion-selling R&B singer was charged with felony assault in a 2009 domestic violence incident with former girlfriend Rihanna. Chris Brown has had six No. 1 singles in his decade-long career. His current single “Party” will be featured on his eighth studio album, slated to be released later this year

“I WILL BE THE GREATEST!,” Breezy tweeted proudly before listing the Godfather of Soul and the King of Pop, and stating that he will be the third greatest in that order. “When knowledge speaks wisdom listens,” he said. “JAMES BROWN, MICHAEL JACKSON, CHRIS BROWN. In that order.”

@chrisbrown When knowledge speaks wisdom listens

@chrisbrown JAMES BROWN, MICHAEL JACKSON, CHRIS BROWN. In that order.

Reactions to Brown’s comments were mixed as some fans were in agreement while others felt that the singer has quite a long ways to go before he can reach the levels of Brown. Chris Brown has definitely showed his love for Michael Jackson since the beginning. “My mama can tell you — ever since I was little, watching Michael Jackson on the TV screen and imitating him,” he said in an early interview. In 2010, Breezy performed an emotional tribute to Jackson at the BET Awards that ended with him in tears. Breezy’s dancing style is often compared to that of the late great Michael Jackson, and he’s never held back on how much the iconic artist inspired his word.

As entertainers, however, Michael Jackson and Chris Brown are more evenly matched than reactionaries would like to admit. They’re both supremely athletic showmen. If Michael Jackson briefly resurrected and in a “Devil Went Down To Georgia”-type situation challenged Chris Brown to a glittery dance-off, Chris Brown might could moonwalk off with MJ’s fedora. Not necessarily, but the competition would be close. You never know. Additionally, Chris Brown can rap. Michael Jackson couldn’t but MJ was iconic.

Chris Brown is a millennial avatar of black pop, perhaps, but I doubt that “Run It” and “Loyal” will age as gracefully as “P.Y.T.,” “Thriller,” or “Bad,” which aren’t even my favorite MJ songs. (“Off The Wall,” “Dirty Diana,” and “Remember The Time,” duh.) Michael Jackson was a tremendous singer and revolutionary pop performer who desegregated MTV and set several dozen international music sales records in the course of his 44-year career. Chris Brown isn’t too far behind in his own making his own way.

    He is way behind Michael when it comes to artistry as a whole. In the first 10 years of his career his name has stayed in headlines. When Michael was between 19 and 30 he was grinding to become the greatest. Chris just continues to do stupid things that make himself look worse. He’s been accused again of hitting a woman not to mention his stalker tendencies. He’s wasting his talent making stupid decisions.

    hahahahahahahahahaha…. the next Michael Jackson…. hahahahahahaha maybe in another Universe…. hahahahaha
    Its like declaring Rihanna as the most successful solo act in history by Billboard… hahahaha, SURE….., just because she has been selling only digital songs and having stream units in millions, but the album sales is a big FLOP…

    So…, end of the discussion.
