What do you get when you mix Michael Jackson and Akon? A killer rendition of “Wannabe Startin’ Something.” The hit song has be re-recorded as part of Thriller 25, a 25th Anniversary edition of Thriller by the King of Pop.
Thriller is the world’s best selling album, so it’ll be interesting to hear this remixed version that’s being released internationally on February 11th.
If Ne-Yo’s hit song “Because of You” off his soon to be released sophomore album sounds a bit like Michael Jackson to you, it’s because he intended it that way.
“I feel that â€œBecause of Youâ€… If people didnâ€™t notice, Iâ€™m thinking everybody did, but itâ€™s very Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson is a huge part of why it is I do what I do. So that is kind of my ode to him, this song.
I’m really digging this song, and the vid isn’t too bad either. He punches out quite a few signature MJ moves here and there, but why he would cheat on his smoking hot girl for some whack chick is beyond me.
