On Friday (August 16), a tweaked version of a collaboration made by The Gloved One and The Biebs before Jackson died in 2009 surfaced online.
The song, called “Slave 2 The Rhythm,” is easily recognizable as a Jackson tune, right from the first note, but is then jazzed up wheb Bieber’s voice chimes in.
The song was originally released, posthumously, in 2010. Bieber tweeted, “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.”
The updated version of the song keeps Jackson’s singing intact, but the music has been sped up, and pumped up into dance mix.
