His songs have been sampled by artists like SWV (“Human Nature Remix”), Chris Brown (“She Ain’t You”), LL Cool J (“Hey Lover”), and many more! Just recently, Drake used Michael Jackson’s vocals on his song “Don’t Matter To Me.” The vocals came from an unreleased song from MJ.

Michael’s music is still relevant today as well as his dance moves. He’s influenced artists such as Chris Brown, Beyonce, NeYo, NSYNC, Kanye, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jay-Z and of course many.

May he continue to Rest In Peace and let his legacy live on!
