Akon's Cover of Michael Jackson's 1983 Single Leaked


Akon has covered Michael Jackson's 'Wanna be Startin' Somethin'' that is expected to be in the re-release of 'Thriller'.

In the past few days, a new track from Akon has surfaced on the internet. Apparently, it was the R'n'B singer's cover of Michael Jackson's 1983 single 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin''.

This rendition is expected to appear in the re-release of Jackson's 'Thriller' that was reported last month. 'Wanna be Startin' Somethin'' is one of the four songs that will receive the remix, others being 'Billie Jean', 'The Girl is Mine' and 'Pretty Young Thing'.

The re-release is to mark the 25th anniversary of 'Thriller' (1982) that is dubbed the best-selling album of all time. Beside Akon, Roger Friedman of FOX411 reported that there will also be contributions from will.i.am and Kanye West.

While the anniversary will fall on December 1, there has been no official statement regarding the re-release of this album.

    Sounds a bit sleasy. Too many covers these days as it is. Why people keep ripping other people's songs?
