I was thinking about how Thriller and Sade's Diamond Life are probably two of the biggest modern albums by black artists. I'm sure there are countless artists who cite them as inspiring or influencing them.

ya. Like a somewhat closer comparison might be Whitney Houston or something...

I love Sade but i doubt she influenced much...

Think about all the American and European R&b artists influenced by Sade. And then think about all the downtempo and trip hop artists also influenced by her.

And think about all the women pop singers since the 80s who have claimed Whitney Houston as an influence.....

Mj is of course not even in the same league as these two.

I dont know why im bothering with this thread but...yeah
