Today (Aug. 29), would have been Michael Jackson‘s 60th birthday! The musical icon and greatest entertainer of all time will live on forever through the celebration of his music.
In honor of the milestone birthday, the King of Pop’s team recruited award-winning producer Mark Ronson to create a special mash-up mix of MJ’s classics. The 5-minute club-ready tribute is called “Diamonds Are Invincible,” and includes hits and favorites like “Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Human Nature,” “The Way You Make Me Feel,” and many more.
Speaking about the tribute mix, Mark says: “It was such an amazing, awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put this together. Although you’d need hours and hours to fit all of Michael’s classic tunes into one track, I wanted this to feel like being on the dancefloor at a sweaty, wild NYC club—getting down to as much MJ as a DJ could tastefully throw on in five minutes. i was also lucky enough to get some of the original multi tracks and, although you can’t ever hope to improve on the Mona Lisa, i wanted to let people hear some things they might have not heard. the power of hearing MJ’s lead vocals isolated was so insane, often times i’d get lost in his voice and completely forget to bring the rhythm track back in.
Michael’s vocals were an entire band anyway, drums percussion bass and all. anyway, i hope you enjoy. and Happy Birthday MJ.”
