Jay-Z hooked up on Tuesday as a surprise guest in a Twitter Spaces Talk about the album promo by Alicia Keys. In addition to the discussion of whom Jay-Z could face in a potential Verzuz battle – according to Hova, nobody himself – he dared to make another courageous statement: His wife Beyoncé was more blatant than Michael Jackson.
Jay-Z thinks no one can compete with him
While Future recently claimed that he was “taller than Jay-Z” , the latter seems to see it very differently. When asked in the Twitter Spaces talk about whom he could imagine as a worthy opponent of himself in a Verzuz match , he could only think of one who could hold a candle to him – and that was himself. While he did not attack anyone with it According to Hova, no one else wants to have a catalog of music like he himself:
“NOBODY CAN MEASURE HIMSELF AGAINST ME ON STAGE. I DON’T WANT TO LIE – THAT’S NO DISRESPECT, EVERYONE IS GREAT AT WHAT HE DOES. BUT NOBODY CAN MEASURE HIMSELF AGAINST ME ON STAGE STAND WHILE I DO GRAMMY FAMILY (FREESTYLE). NOBODY’S SEEN ME PERFORM THIS AT ALL AND YOU’D HAVE TO STAND RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN, MAN. “

A statement with which he will probably trigger even more people: He thinks his wife Beyoncé is the “further development of Michael Jackson”. In the past, many people compare the pop diva to the King of Pop. Jay-Z (now streaming on Apple Music ) goes one step further:
“BEY WILL BE MAD AT ME FOR SAYING THAT. BUT MICHAEL JACKSON DIDN’T HAVE COACHELLA. HE’S CRAZY AND HE DID CRAZY THINGS, BUT SHE’S AN EVOLUTION OF HIM BECAUSE SHE WATCHED HIM WHEN SHE WAS NINE. SHE WATCHED WHAT HE DID AND DEVELOPED HIS CONCEPT FURTHER FOR HIMSELF. “
With the Coachella remark, he is referring to her performance at the festival in 2018, which many consider to be a historic moment in pop culture. “Show me a concert that was as culturally released and technically as groundbreaking as Coachella,” adds Hova.
Extremely appreciative words that Jay-Z finds for his wife – even if he assumes that, as a big Michael Jackson fan, she will not be too happy with his statement.
