Pop Rewind: Michael Jackson “Black or White”

Yesterday, June 25, marked five years since the “King of Pop” passed away. It only seems fitting, then, to pull another Michael Jackson hit out of the vault for this week’s Rewind. “Black or White,” Jackson’s ode to racial harmony, was the lead single from 1991’s Dangerous, blending pop, dance, rap and a touch of metal into a highly catchy tune that dares you not to dance to it.

Listen to Michael Jackson Posthumous Single “Love Never Felt So Good”

It’s been nearly five years since we lost Michael Jackson, but a team of producers headed up by Timbaland and executive producer L.A. Reid have been hard at work helping keep his memory alive, most notably with an upcoming posthumous album Xscape, a collection of “contemporized” unreleased tunes reportedly mined from about 40 years’ worth of demos.

Pop Rewind: Michael Jackson “Billie Jean”

Pop Rewind: Michael Jackson “Thriller”

Given the time of year, it simply makes sense to bring out Michael Jackson’s video for “Thriller” as this weekend’s pop rewind. Despite the controversy that swirled around the “King of Pop” over the years, Jackson remains an icon, not because of the hype surrounding him, but because of his talent. He is one of those artists whose work changed the musical landscape, influencing and altering the way people after […]

Bad 25: The Remixes

It was always inevitable following his death in 2009 that no corner of Michael Jackson’s back catalogue would remain untouched. Just three years on and there’s already been a collection of his unreleased recordings (Michael), a Cirque du Soleil soundtrack (Immortal) and countless cash-in compilations. So it was little surprise when it was announced that Jackon’s seminal 1987 seventh studio effort, Bad, was to be given the full deluxe edition […]
