Aloe Blacc – Billie Jean (R.I.P. Michael Jackson) (Video)

blame it on JES7 June 25, 2010


This soul revivalist movement has it’s death grip on my ears. Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, The Budos Band, The Daktaris, The Menahan Street Band, El Michel’s Affair, Daptone Records, Aloe Blacc, etcetera etcetera. R.I.P. to the greatest, Michael Joseph Jackson (August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009).

On the first anniversary of The King of Pop’s death, Aloe Blacc pays homage to the legend the only way he knows how, by performing a cover of his favorite MJ song (Billie Jean). But rather than try to recreate the magic of the original, Aloe puts one of the most soulful & bluesy spins you’ll ever hear on this classic.
