Anyone else feel that the constant comparing of The Weeknd to Michael Jackson is ridiculous?

Anyone else feel that the constant comparing of The Weeknd to Michael Jackson is ridiculous?
Don’t get me wrong, Abel is an excellent artist and I’ve been enjoying the hell out of his new and old releases. His voice is so smooth and unique. I can definitely hear the characteristics of MJ’s voice as well- his vibrato and timbre specifically at times. But as far as the quality of songs and their contents, the way he can use his voice, his versatility, power, melodic creativity, lyrics and most of all, live performance ability…that’s where it doesn’t even come close. And seeing as all of these are what set MJ apart from everyone else I’m surprised at the amount of people I’m seeing nowadays saying “he’s the new Michael”, “MJ has been reborn”, “he sounds just like him”.Side note- none of this upsets me. The frequency of the comparisons is just surprising and I’d like to know what more people think of this, or if you’ve even noticed.
