A new collaboration from two music icons of different generations, Justin Bieber and Michael Jackson, called “Slave to the Rhythm,” has hit the Internet.
Listen to the mysterious new song from JB & MJ below:
Minds? Officially blown. So what's the deal here?
“Slave to the Rhythm” was a little-known Michael Jackson song that made its way online after his death. Michael’s vocals and lyrics remain intact here.
A heavier dance beat and Justin Bieber's contributions have been added, of course, making for a monster collaboration of unknown origin and authenticity.
It's unclear whether this remix was meant to be officially released, or if it's a fan creation, though Justin’s tweets give the impression that it's legitimate.
Shortly after the song began hit YouTube and Twitter, Justin Bieber began tweeting about the King of Pop, writing, “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. All of it is not always easy but it is a blessing. We can change the world."
"I’m up for the challenge. Big things ahead! #greatness. love you.”
