I thought this might be a legitimate comparison. Both are kinda in the same R&Bluegrass as I'd like to call it.

Both artists put a spin on R&B that hasn't been seen in a while and they're both emerging at the same time.

So what do you guys think? Honestly I can't decide who I like more.

cool

They aren't even alike in the slightest.

Weeknd's voice >

Frank's songwriting >

They're arguably in the same niche genre though. So we can compare them.

Like comparing apples and oranges, they may not be alike BUT they are both fruits.

So...which do you like more: apples or oranges? cool

i feel like they're just too different to compare.

overall i think the weeknd's a more talented singer. i think frank can write a lot better though, just as mentioned above.

i honestly don't think that they're ever gonna collab, and if they do it's gonna be lackluster. i bet they're getting so tired of the comparisons.

r&b singers never collab they usually just sing hooks for rappers. Which frank is already doing. And The Weeknd is a douche he acts all hard because he does so many drugs

The weeknd, I like his style better. His production is ridiculous though.

I also feel like he's more epic than Frank Ocean.

Like his music can have a great impact on society. His music is on of the dopest things I've heard in a while, honestly.

Frank is a great songwriter but he has one of the most average voices in R&B history. HoB > N,U imo

That said I acknowledge Abel is mostly dope because of his production, I want to get at least 2 albums by both of them before I can truly decide but as of right now, I gotta go with The Weeknd.

Although I enjoy The Weeknd more, he's 90% production. I think Frank's a much better singer and artist overall, judging by the random demos and reference tracks Abel has floatin' around the web.

Abel's def a better singer, I like franks songwriting no doubt, but I like more Weeknd songs.

weird that the only weeknd songs i know are the 9 from house of balloons. and the only frank i like as much as that is when he features on goblin. so idk, i need proper albums from both. nostalgia ultra is a mixtape, in my eyes at least.

I ended up liking more unreleased material from Abel than from Frank.

The Weeknd has a better voice but Frank Ocean is more entertaining to me. Maybe I need to really listen to the Weeknd's lyrics though.
