Name a time when a decades-late remix of a Michael Jackson song wasn't a disaster. That's why we have a comment form!
Will.I.Am has re-purposed "The Girl is Mine" for MJ's Thriller anniversary album and Paul McCartney is nowhere to be found. Kinda ruins the concept of the song doesn't it? Beat-wise, it's nothing to write home about. Will is either hit-or-miss, with some of his strongest work going to folks like Nas and Talib Kweli. Every time he goes Pop or "R&B Lite" I can't help but wonder how much of his talent is going to a complete waste. That said, it's not as ear-bleedingly bad as Akon's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," but it could definitely be better. Or, not at all.
