Michael Jackson is known as one of the most iconic pop artists in the game, but that didn’t stop him from enjoying the fresh beats and rhymes of other lyricists in the music industry.
Last week, news broke that Kanye West might have set a record in history, topping Michael Jackson with more Top 40 hit songs than the legend. Some opinionated fans championed the victory, while others weren’t pleased about the rapper’s comparison to the icon.
Jackson’s daughter, Paris, caught wind of a tweet from a fan that was very upset about the news, stating if Michael Jackson was still here he would’ve continued to carry the throne and receive more Top 40 hits.
Paris responded in a manner that proved why her dad is called an icon. He never looked down on anyone and he never competed towards anyone in the game as a rival. She let it be known her dad was actually a big fan of the outspoken rapper, and he constantly played Kanye’s album, 808s and Heartbreak, which released in 2008. Jackson was actually the person who introduced her to the album, and Paris salutes Kanye for his accomplishments in this tough industry. Producing great music isn’t easy and Kanye has earned every opportunity that has come his way. Therefore, Paris believes it’s only right Michael Jackson’s fans congratulate him instead of ridiculing the musical genius.
