    Default Rotimi 'Hollywood Tonight' [Michael Jackson Cover]



    In this exciting new GWHH PREMIERE, we present a brand new video from up and coming R&B star Rotimi. But this one's different than what you may be expecting as he covers his idol MIchael Jackson and his new song "Hollywood Tonight". If that doesn't sound familiar to you, then it is probably because you missed it on the posthumous release Michael from just a couple of weeks ago. What I noticed right away is that Rotimi emulates Michael's vocal style a little bit like you should in the cover, but also, nothing is exaggerated and he adds his own personal sound to the singing as well. And in addition to the on point vocals, Ro' recruits a dope live guitar and even a beatbox master by the name Ralphie to further add the original twist. The organic, in-studio process of creating the cover is artistically documented in the video as all three get some face time in the crispy visuals. I loved this one all the way around and look forward to what Rotimi has got in store for the upcoming debut project, The Resume, due out in February, 2011. If this is just an appetizer, then you know Rotimi's got somethin' special in store in a couple months and you know Gowhere will keep you in tune with what is to come from Ro' until then, so until then, enjoy!

    It's good. Sony will see that HT as single is a good idea.

    Don't kid yourself. Sony can't even pick a decent track listing or promote the album right to save their lives, much less decide on what song would be a great single.

    Remember this is the same record label that thought You Rock My World was a better 1st single than Unbreakable.

    Yes, IT was:cheeky:
    And UNBREAKABLE is so forgettable, good as an opener but nowhere near as anything uptempo on MICHAEL

    No louis, Unbreakable would have been a much better 1st single, not only as its a great song, but because Michael had big plans for the video. The clubs would have loved the song.
    You Rock My World was more radio friendly that's the only thing it has over Unbreakable

    Hollywood Tonight needs to be released, besides maybe Behind The Mask its my favourite !!

    Michael wanted UNBREAKABLE over YOU ROCK MY WORLD as 1st single. I go with MJs instincts over SONY's.

    HT & BTM need to be singles IMO

    Teddy, listen to this guitar please. See how funky it is? THAT'S how HT is supposed to sound. Those violins ruined the song for me. It's still good but it could have been SO. MUCH. BETTER!

    l hate it because Michael's track should not be touched.
    Michael Jackson is my drug. I'm addicted to him. He's very important to me. It's hard to explain how someone whom I have never met before can mean so much to me. I guess Michael won't be Michael if he's not that magical. MEHDI
