Jay-Z thinks his wife Beyonce Knowles is “the second coming”

****Jay-Z compares his wife Beyonce Knowles to the late Michael Jackson, saying Beyonce is “the second coming” of the pop legend.

Rapper Jay-Z admitted it’s a big call to compare the Single Ladies hitmaker to the Beat It singer – who passed away from acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 – but he has been educated in similar ways by both of them.

“What I’ve learned from her is similar to what I learned from [Michael Jackson] – and I know that’s blasphemy to compare the two because Mike was such an innovator, but I think she’s like the second coming,” he says.

Jay also explained Beyonce – whom he married in 2008 – inspires him to keep creating music.

“The hard work and dedication that she puts into her shows, it just makes you want to work harder at your own craft. She’s like a machine,” he adds.
