Fan art for the Michael Jackson x Justin Bieber collab "Slave To The Rhythm"
Over the weekend, Michael Jackson fans were either livid or elated at the news of a posthumous collab with Justin Bieber (and probably no in between, hah.) Here's the story via Billboard:
The track “Slave 2 The Rhythm” was reportedly recorded by Jackson well before his death in 2009, and quietly appeared in 2010. The reworked version adds Bieber’s vocals to the mix, and has already been spun by Capital FM in the U.K.
"Excited for what is to come. MJ set the bar," Bieber tweeted. "Not only for music but for being an entertainer and how u treat fans."
Subsequent posts of the track on YouTube and Soundcloud were yanked over the weekend. The YouTube video is replaced with a notice which explains, “The video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by SME."
I did my best to scour YouTube for a version and this is the best I could see... the audio may have been modified and by the time you're reading this, it may be shut down completely. I'm not really dying to hear this so I'll wait until if/when the song gets officially released. For those really lookin' for it though, have at it while it's up.
