R&B singers Frank Ocean and Miguel get compared often, since both continuously put out critically acclaimed music.
Now that Miguel just dropped a new album and Frank will do the same very soon, Miguel figured it’s a good time to let folks know that he makes better music.
When asked if he’s cool with Frank, Miguel tells the Sunday Times:
“I wouldn’t say we were friends. To be completely honest — and no disrespect to anyone — I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.”
Miguel also feels it’s very possible he will last longer in the business than Frank and The Weeknd.

In related news, it appears Miguel’s controversial interviews as of late haven’t done much to help him sell albums. However, Meek Mill’s hot romance with Nicki Minaj may have aided him in getting his largest first week sales ever.
Hot New Hip Hop writes:
Hits Daily Double reports the final tally to be 216,173, putting Meek a good 50k up on his debut album, Dreams & Nightmares, and ahead of pretty much every rap album released this year that wasn’t by Drake or Kendrick.
As you might expect, the large number will land Meek at the top of the charts this week, with Miguel hovering around the second spot with 39,342 in sales. Stay tuned for the streaming data to make its way in.
