Four years after the untimely death of King of Pop Michael Jackson, the music icon is brought back to life through his music by way of a new version of his unreleased song "Slave to the Rhythm". Recorded shortly before his death in 2009 and first heard back in 2010, the song gets remixed with a heavier dance beat and vocals from this generation's pop superstar Justin Bieber.
The new version surfaced online today, with MJ's vocals and lyrics intact but improved with Bieber's verse and an amplified beat. The 2010 original was produced by Tricky Stewart who worked with Bieber on his mega-hit "Baby". There is no word yet as to whether the remix will be officially released since it could just be a fan production but Bieber's Twitter messages appear to say it was legitimate.
"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...," tweeted Bieber shortly after the revamped "Slave 2 the Rhythm" was heard online. "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."
Beliebers on Twitter are saying that The Biebs reportedly bought the rights to "Slave to the Rhythm" in order to come up with a collaboration with the late pop icon.
