Yea, I never understood why he was always lauded as so talented when he didn’t write anything (he got a writing & producing credit when he added one of his signature grunts or ‘he he’s’) or produce any of his music. He always had a producer, writer, and choreographer. These are, in essence, the actual inventive talents. MJ was just following orders.
Prince could write, produce, dance, and play every instrument known to man - he was a true gifted talent.
Nope, MJ pretty much wrote all his material up to the Bad album but then he got lazy and just had other people people write stuff for him. I'm guessing his rapidly declining health probably had something to do with it also.
Other way around, Michael wrote more himself as he got older.
