Miguel made headlines early Monday (July 6) when a controversial comment about Frank Ocean from an interview with The Sunday Times hit the Internet. But now, he's trying to make it all good and the Wildheart singer later took to Twitter to clarify his statement.
During his exchange with the publication, Miguel threw major shade at his R&B counterpart saying, "I wouldn't say we were friends. To be completely honest - and no disrespect to anyone - I genuinely believe that I make better music, all the way around. It's interesting, but we'll see who's in it for the long haul. It's like a marathon, you know?"
After an overwhelming debate among Twitter users and fans, the "Coffee" crooner jumped online to clear up some things. He tweeted, "No need to compare apples to oranges," along with an attached statement.
I want to clear the air. Yes, I am competitive, we ALL have to have a level of confidence and competitiveness to put ourselves on the line day in and day out. But I also believe there's room for all artists. That's what WILDHEART is all about: celebrating individuality. I guess what I'm saying is, there's no need to compare apples to oranges, there's something out there for everyone. That's why I'm here and able to do what I do. So, thank you to everyone who enjoys my music and all love to everyone who doesn't, we're all here to find our own wave and that's OK! Stay passionate, stay free, and of course stay wild!
Soon after, Miguel returned to business as usual on his Twitter, promoting the release of his newest LP.

Frank Ocean has remained pretty lowkey since winning big at the Grammys for 2012's Channel Orange. Though earlier this year, he announced the release of a new magazine and potential album, Boys Don't Cry. More recently, Miguel has wowed critics with his new album Wildheart, which dropped last month.
