What would Michael Jackson have thought of this?
A new song by MJ featuring Justin Bieber entitled Slave 2 The Rhythm has surfaced online bringing together the vocals and talent of two pop artists.
Slave 2 The Rhythm was in fact recorded by the late Michael Jackson back in 2009 before his death. It appears that the Biebs decided to mix in a few of his vocals and add a heavier dance beat to the original track initially produced for the pop legend that is MJ.
Clearly, the song was not recorded as a duet with Jackson because Bieber’s voice had not been broken in 2009. The song features Bieber’s voice as mature as it is today.
The reworked track was leaked online following a cryptic tweet written by Justin. The Believe singer said,
“Excited for what is to come. MJ set the bar. Not only for music but for being an entertainer and how u treat the fans. Wish he was here…”
Though we are all aware of Bieber’s admiration for the King of Pop, it has yet to be confirmed whether or not Slave 2 The Rhythm is an official collaborated track or if it is simply a fan-made song.
Recent sources claimed that Bieber was interested in purchasing Michael Jackson’s Neverland Ranch. Read more about that here.
