    It may be a cue for his bass player. "Bartow" may actually be him saying "bottom" which means baseline. The reason he pronounced it that way was well.....MJ being MJ....bending, stretching, and contorting words so they are left barely decipherable.

    It's just random jibberish words. He'd shout stuff like that more often than the typical "everybody! move! yeah! alright!"

    It means "everybody". It evolved over the years. He actually said "everybato" in the earlier days a few times. "Bato" is just an easier way for him to say "everybody".

    I have wondered about that "word" for years! lol

    It is probably Mike talk, yes.

    Batow!
    Acha Ooo!

    But maybe it is a cue for one of the musicians OR he is adressing one of the musicians.

    My buddy and I have always jokingly assumed he was saying "PART TWO!" Part Two of what, we have no idea.

    But yeah, I love this little adlib. It rules.

    Michael say Batow again after he say Rock with me Maybe that is what Batow mean rock with me. On the part where he say shake your thang he say it again (Batow) right before this.

    I always thought he said ‘matow’ I have seen him laugh and look at someone when he says that, it maybe aimed at someone. But ALSO have you guys seen the victory tour where he says ‘peki’ but then he says ‘peki ri ri ri ri’ and then says ‘ri ri ri ri’ and laughs after HAHA

    If I had the chance to interview Mike, I swear this would be one of the questions I'd ask him haha. He'd probably shrug his shoulders and say he was just feeling it

    I read somebody say they thought it could have been him saying "band talk", because right after he does it in say Rock With You, the back up singers come in. Which isn't a bad guess I thought
