A day after Michael Jackson passed away, P. Diddy wastes no time to join fellow singers and record a tribute song titled "Better on the Other Side" for the late King of Pop. Among other stars who lend their vocals on the track are The Game, Usher, Chris Brown, Mario Winans and Boyz II Men.

"Who's Michael Jackson?/ You're Michael Jackson/ I'm Michael Jackson/ We all Michael Jackson," Game raps on the song's line. "I guess what I'm asking is/ Everybody bow their head/ For a legend, don't breathe for a second."

At the end of the track which was debuted on Los Angeles radio station Power 106 on June 26, Diddy concludes with a statement saying, "People can say what they want about you. We gonna remember the miracles that you showed us. Through your music, through your dance. You were the one that made us realize that you are the world. Through us your legacy lives on, Mike Jackson."

P. Diddy previously wrote on his Twitter in regard of Michael's sudden death. "Michael Jackson showed me that you can actually see the beat," he shared his thought. "He made the music come to life!! He made me believe in magic. I will miss him!"

In the same mourning tone, Chris Brown said, "Michael Jackson is the reason why I do music and why I am an entertainer. I am devastated by this great loss, and I will continue to be humbled and inspired by his legacy. My prayers are with his family. Michael will be deeply missed, but never forgotten. He's the greatest...the best ever. No one will ever be better."

The greatest tribute ever made was from a single person who put together one of the best originated songs ever called Im still here, by R.P. Man a 19 song motown tribute. I heard it through the grapevine and it made me cry.

MJ was truly the king of pop, and redefined the world of music forever, and touched the lives of many people around the world with his music and I can say that his death brings me to my knees in prayer of thanks to God for allowing the world for being able to bless us all with his songs, he will truly be remembered for many generations to come, his music brought life, love, and happiness to all that listened to it. Praises be to MJ, the true king of pop.
