Check the clock because it’s time for a good ol’ fashioned hip hop feud! R&B singer Miguel revived his beef with rapper and singer, Frank Ocean. Miguel dissed Frank in a new interview, saying that he thinks he simply ‘makes better music’ than Frank!
Shots. Fired. Miguel, 29, just dropped a brand new album, Wildheart, on June 30 and what better way to celebrate than by picking a fight with his old rival, Frank Ocean? Miguel made it clear that he and Frank, 27, are not friends, before insulting him by saying he’s not as good as Miguel! OUCH.
While speaking with the Sunday Times on July 5, Miguel squashed any hopes that these two would collaborate on a track anytime soon. “I wouldn’t say we were friends,” he said, remembering how Frank Ocean beat him for the Best Urban Contemporary Album Grammy in 2013. Even though it’s been two years, the loss still must bother Miguel, especially since he thinks he’s the better musician!
“To be completely honest – and no disrespect to anyone,” Miguel said, “I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around.”
No disrespect, eh? When Frank beat Miguel in 2013, Miguel refused to join in with the rest of the crowd when giving him a standing ovation. When asked if he would go back in time to change it, Miguel simply told TMZ, “No.”
Miguel also talked about whether Frank and fellow singer The Weeknd would last in the music industry as long as him, “It’s interesting, but we’ll see who’s in it for the long haul. It’s like a marathon, you know?” Shady!
Of course, it wouldn’t be a real feud if the fans didn’t get in on it. While most people laughed off Miguel’s claims that he’s better than Frank, there were some who agreed with him. Surprisingly, there was also a good amount of fans who think they should squash the beef and just work together!
What’s funny is that for all Miguel’s theatrics & grand declarations, Frank Ocean will quietly drop another album & win the awards he wants.

I like Miguel more than Frank Ocean anyway. So when he says he makes better music, I agree. It’s all preference anyway.

Yeah….Miguel sorry buddy, you don’t make better music than Frank Ocean. Your leg drops are clinical though.

Miguel better watch himself. Frank proved he has the vocal chops when he paid tribute to Aaliyah on Jan. 16. On what would have been her 36th birthday, Frank showed some love to the late R&B singer, doing his rendition of her cover of the Isley Brothers “At Your Best (You Are Love).” Incredible!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are you Team Miguel, or do you think Frank Ocean is the better of the two? Leave your thoughts below.
