    Default Michael references in songs [MERGED]

    There are so many songs that mention Michael in the lyrics... Maybe we can make a list They're not easy to find like samples\covers

    Everything goes - Michael, Michael Jackson, MJ, King of Pop, reference to his songs lyrics... Whatever you find...

    I'll start

    Keri Hilson - Knock You Down ft. Kanye West, Ne-Yo

    Kanye's part:

    "This is bad, real bad, Michael Jackson
    Now I'm mad, real mad, Joe Jackson"


    Released: April 2009

    MKTO - Classic
    (They mention others too... but he's first )

    "I wanna thrill you like Michael
    I wanna kiss you like Prince
    Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye
    Like Hathaway
    Write a song for you like this
    "

    Released: June 2013

    Ne-Yo ft. Jay Z - Crazy

    "And Ne-yo is like young Michael, I'm Quincy hoe
    Now hear the flow that broke the Da Vinci cod"


    (no... )

    Released: May 2007

    Lil Wayne Ft. Bruno Mars - Mirror

    Lil Wayne:

    "I see the change, I see the message
    And no message could've been any clearer
    So I'm startin' with the man in the...

    [Bruno: Mirror on the wall...]

    MJ taught me that.
    "

    Released: September 2011

    Karen O - King

    "The King of Pop is dead and gone away
    No one'll ever take his place
    He's in his castle in the sky
    Watching over you and I

    And with his single sparkling glove
    He blows us kisses, show us love
    Is he walking on the moon?
    I hope I don't find out too soon"


    Released: September 2014

    Missy Elliott - Ching-A-Ling

    "Artists drop down like Michael Jackson socks"

    Released: January 2008 (Step Up 2)

    Beyoncé - Flawless (Remix) ft. Nicki Minaj

    I was a bit taken aback by this one when I first saw the video, they're both fans :mello: not sure what to think about it

    Nicki's part

    "Yo, like MJ doctor, they killing me
    Propofol, I know they hope I fall"

    Released: October 2014


    I'll add more later...

    Kanye got so many... I didn't know about Chain Heavy and I Am A God... I haven't listened to his latest album yet. Was Chain Heavy included in any of his albums?

    Da Youngstas an old rap group from the 90s had mention Michael in 2 of their songs. If I remember correctly. I haven't listen to them in over 20 years. But I do clearly remember hearing Michael's name in 2 of their songs.

    Nice! Found one:

    Da Youngstas - Who's The Mic Wrecka (1993)

    "I keep the crowd hype just like a Michael Jackson concert"


    Couldn't find the second one... but I found that they sampled "I Wanna Be Where You Are" in a song called "Stayed Away".

    Do this tribute song count? The impersonator looks awful but the song makes me cry evey time, it's beautiful and moving!

    Mr. Magic by Jadagrace


    Mr. Magic gone to soon
    I know your dancing on the Moon
    Tinkerbell and Fairy Tales
    Peter Pan and Never Land
    Your in your castle in the sky

    It took one look for me to see
    To see the boy behind the mystery
    Your magic had inspired me
    To be the best that I can be

    Your so incredible
    So unforgettable
    The brightest star in the sky

    Mr. Magic gone to soon
    (Mr. Magic gone to soon)
    I know your dancing on the Moon
    ( I know your dancin', I see you dancin')
    Tinkerbell and Fairy Tales
    Peter Pan and Never Land
    Your in your castle in the sky

    You stood for everything that's good and true
    I wish the world would learn to love like you
    You knew what wonders love could bring
    And it all starts when you believe

    Your so incredible
    So unforgettable
    The brightest star in the sky

    Mr. Magic gone to soon
    (Mr. Magic gone to soon)
    I know your dancing on the Moon
    ( I know your dancin', I see you dancin')
    Tinkerbell and Fairy Tales
    Peter Pan and Never Land
    Your in your castle in the sky

    I feel you here by my side lifting me higher
    (higher)
    And when I close my eyes
    Your dancing next to me

    Ohhh, Mr. Magic gone to soon
    (Mr. Magic gone to soon)
    I know your dancing on the Moon
    ( I know your dancin', I see you dancin')
    Tinkerbell and Fairy Tales
    Peter Pan and Never Land
    Mr. Magic....Gone to soon.

    I Am A God was on the best album of 2013, Yeezus. Chain Heavy was released as part of the G.O.O.D Friday series, before My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy came out so it is not featured on his albums.
