‘Black Eyed Peas’ singer Will.I.Am has made some sensational claims in the past, but nothing quite like this. He feels that pop sensation, Justin Bieber could be the new Michael Jackson and fill the void in music that was left after Michael’s passing in 2009.
Will.I.Am is currently working with Bieber on his third studio album and said that after talking with the singer he really feels Justin’s career could stand the test of time. He said;
“I was with Justin Bieber in the studio two days ago, working on his new album, and we had a really great conversation. Justin Bieber could be like Prince. Justin Bieber could be like Michael Jackson where his career is like, for like, ‘Wow! Explain its 2030, Justin Bieber, your career is so long. You’re the first artist to be broadcasted to Mars. How do you feel about that?’ Justin Bieber could be that dude.”
“That’s the conversation we had and then we started working on things from scratch like here right, I wanted to do something with Justin that probably no other producer would do or to took the time to think about to do. You know I’m excited about the stuff we’re making.”
Comparing anyone to Michael Jackson is a difficult thing to do as there is really only one Michael Jackson, much like there’s only one Justin Bieber. Justin is a phenomenon all on his own and really doesn’t need to be “the next” anything, because he’s done quite well being himself.
