With his latest album Wildheart turning one week old today (July 6), it looks like Miguel is already out to claim superiority over his “competition”.
During an interview with The Sunday Times, the singer spoke on his relationship with fellow crooner Frank Ocean, calling their relationship “cordial” at best, but he didn’t stop there: “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.”
Ocean, known for his 2011 album Channel Orange and his affiliation with Odd Future, is a contemporary in the field of what people have labeled “alternative R&B,” and Miguel’s convinced that he’s got more longevity: “”It’s interesting,” he said, “but we’ll see who’s in it for the long haul. It’s like a marathon, you know?
Frank’s next album Boys Don’t Cry is supposedly slated for release sometime this month, so we’ll see how both artists manage in the coming weeks and months. Isn’t this world big enough for the both of them?
