Miguel‘s new album Wildheart hit stores last Monday, and he’s been promoting the album (of course) all week with TV performances and interviews. NME had a chance to interview the artist and they asked him about his relationship with Frank Ocean, and Miguel said it is “cordial at best”. He then followed up and said “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.” He was then asked about the comparisons that are made in the industry with himself, Ocean, and The Weeknd, saying “It’s interesting,” he said, “but we’ll see who’s in it for the long haul. It’s like a marathon, you know?”
Personally, I like all the artists but I think I like Miguel the most. I’m not mad at this statement, and us as fans will see who really makes better music in the long run when more albums are released.
