Aloe Blacc Does Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” Justice
It’s been one year since the legendary King of Pop passed away, everyone has found their own way to pay homage to the late, great Michael Jackson. Some do it by a simple message via Twitter, others make their own Michael Jackson mixes to get them through the day and artists like Aloe Blacc (How To Make It In America‘s “I Need A Dollar”) remember the greatest entertainer of all time by recreating one of his MJ’s most popular songs in a manner that Jackson would appreciate if he was here today.
Aloe Blacc recently recorded a cover of “Billie Jean” that’s simply magnificent. He spills a glut of soul into the original and takes it on a bluesy ride that is quite possibly one of the best recreations of a Michael Jackson song I have ever heard. Give it a listen and offer some thoughts.
