Akon Covers the legendary Michael Jackson
Oh yeahhh, Akon wants to be startin' somethin with Michael Jackson's 1982 original. The tribute to the King of Pop's 25-year-old classic gets new life with R&B sensation Akon's re-envisioning. 25 years ago, the great artist Michael Jacson imagined a whole new world of beat synthesis, Sweetly sung Motown and catchy hooks. The real kicker was, and he called it the pop. On the "thriller" aniversary heirs to the "hybrid" throne -- -- Akon, Kayne, etc -- -- reimagine Mike by remixing the tricks he shown them to try. Hear "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"
