Akon Wants To Be Startin’ Somethin’


Akon, the buff African-American superstar with the dulcet voice and penchant for, uh, escalating interactions between artist and audience, had the privilege of duetting with the Gloved One on “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’” for Thriller 25, the anniversary edition of Michael Jackson‘s storied album. The record won’t be out until February 12th, but we’re streaming that track for you, here and now. And since we’ve had the privilege of listening to it, let’s just say that it’s a real duet, not one of those that stop with backing vocals added to the chorus. Between this and Rihanna‘s “Don’t Stop the Music,” the lyrics “Mama-se, mama-sa, ma-ma-koo-sa” have rarely had so much exposure.

    Many like me are thinking, why is everyone so upset about this death? Yes Micheal Jackson was an absolute amazing pop artist, but he also got away with way more then he should’ve. He in my eyes did mollest those boys, and possibly more then that. He was very out of control and went down hill. I don’t think it’s because of anything else other then him wanting attention. Sorry for many out there who take offense to this.

    Micheal Jackson took his music a long way for us listeners along way. If it wasn’t for him, i wouldn’t have this feeling for pop/music sensation to blast his songs.
