He wanted to work with Lady Ga Ga, for example.

    The classical album that he dreamed of doing might become a reality and I can also envisage him working on movie soundtracks, as a way of tapping into that genre, once and for all. I would hope that his age wouldn't mean the end of the edgy, angry rock songs, with some raspy vocals.....but perhaps it would. Maybe he'd start to do the unplugged, acoustic versions of his songs that some of us dream about.

    Ultimately, though, I don't think we would have seen too many more albums from Michael, had he lived. Considering that he left years between albums during his life time as it was, I think maybe we would have one more....two at the most, before he moved onto something else. I think he would have concentrated on his children's lives and where they were headed, as time moved on.
    So true, Mikki.

    Michael Jackson made an enigmatic statement (during the early stages of the making of the ‘Invincible’ album) when he said that people will understand and appreciate that album after 10-15 years from its release.

    But, by all accounts, ‘Invincible’ musically was not ahead of its time when it came out in 2001.

    It was essentially a mixture of the then-current trends: the up-tempo tracks had a typical Rodney Jerkins’ sound, while the mid-tempo tracks and the ballads were heavily influenced by R&B and neo soul musical elements.

    One has to wonder here if Michael Jackson (when he made that statement) had initially a completely different vision with that album, but he eventually decided for one more time to swim with the tide by releasing an album with familiar to the audience sounds/style in order for him to get easier chart and commercial success with it.

In terms of the kind of music he would be doing. I personally believe we'd be getting things similar to Invicible, BOTDF and HIStory, but massively 'evolved' with every new release. Imagine the vocal styles he'd go for, the beautiful instrumentals he would craft! The short films!

    I think if he took breaks between new albums, as he did anyway, his music would sell very well- if Mike was given creative freedom, was able to work when he wanted, and his work was promoted properly.

    Mike always adapted his style to 'invite' listeners of all ages, while also staying true to himself. This is the other reason I think he would sell, because adaptability= longevity.
    Michael would still be the real deal.

    mj _ frenzy i appreciate you took the time to respond to me and although i agree with you wholeheartedly with Dangerous and other points you have made i cannot agree with " he would have had to the take the route like everyone else ." line.
    M didnt take routes dude lol he didn't follow anyone , anyone . that's the point . It did end the magic .I truly believe that .

    The internet did end the magic because the magic was innocent and people were more patient. They didn't know any different.
    People nowadays would not wait for a 10 second appearance at a window , they wouldn't, they would want M live on Instagram on the toilet! Showing his surgery scars etc [Extreme example of a demand but you know what i mean here ] Mostly, they would want him to be assess able,

    He was never assess able - Never ! so in hindsight the magic had gone for him. how could he promote his art? How could he be michael jackson the mystery man? it would make his whole back story, and what he was always saying to us - look like a lie .
    Sorry i just feel time & technology played a massive part to why michael is not with us now.

    It's M & Sonny.

    It's no secret that he liked rap. If he liked rap back then, who's to say he wouldn't enjoy rap today? The man was getting down to In Da Club by 50 Cent, you don't think he would enjoy songs like God's Plan?

    I can't see him favor Drake no.

    Interesting – I never heard that statement by Michael, but it makes a bit sense to me. When I hear tracks like Shout and 2000 Watts, they sound experimental to me. At least experimental for Michael Jackson tracks. I always wondered whether or not Michael considered a completely different direction with Invincible.

    I wished Michael had released some EP's, every now and then. With experiments, or collaborations... by sticking to albums only, he limited himself. An EP with Shout and 2000 Watts would have been lovely inbetween albums.

    You mean like those electronic music albums Paul McCartney released under the name "The Fireman"? If a listener didn't know it was Paul and heard The Fireman's stuff, they'd never guess it was him. Most of it is instrumental. Mike is too commercial minded and concerned about selling the most records and getting hit singles to do that. It's not like Mike is an avant-garde or free jazz artist.

    How do you know that? Are you a mind reader or something? Janet has played Cardi B at one of her concerts a little while back.

    Keeping your mystery and using at the same time the social media for promoting your art are two things that are not mutually exclusive.

    Michael Jackson would have kept his mystery even in the present social media era by, for example, creating and posting mysterious, interesting posts about him and his music on his social media accounts.

    Michael Jackson liked a lot to tease his fans, and social media would have offered him an excellent opportunity for that purpose.

    He would have used his social media accounts also for more serious things, like for the announcement of specific upcoming, very important projects or deals (with the aid of his management team).

    And we have to keep in mind also here that Michael Jackson was a fan of that direct, on line interaction between an artist and the fans, even before the advent of social media.

    Remember, for instance, his Simulchat interview on August 17th 1995 (during the promotion of his ‘HIStory’ album), when he actually sat in front of a computer with an Internet connection and he quite happily was answering many questions that his fans were sending to him in real time.

    That Simulchat interview (when he became very accessible and casual to his fans) did not end the magic, and also Michael Jackson continued to be a mystery man even after that particular interview.

    Also, as far as I know, Michael Jackson was actually planning to introduce a web chat feature on his MJJSource.com personal website in mid-2000s, and this showed also his desire for direct, on line communication with his fans from all over the world.

    I think his music would of sound a lot like today music with his own thing with a mix of old school. of course it would of stand out like always because that was Michael.

    Michael kind of did went with trends but did his own thing too. for example the 70's early 80's was the disco years. then the mid 80's was the hiphop. follow the early 90's new jack swing then rap and r&b.

    I think Michael music would of had some trap in it. like it or not. Michael always follow the sound that was it was during the decade. yes he did own thing but also went with the sound.

    so yes his music probably have alittle trap in it. Michael always want it to try new genres. and he always did. but i'm pretty sure his music would been on top as it is when he was still here.

    look at Xscape. a lot people don't like the update version of those songs on that album but a lot people tend to forget that probably what his music would have sound like today probably even earlier then that because Michael was always ahead everybody.

    Michael was such musician genius he could of do any genre he want it. bless him. i don't think we will never see any like that again.

    I agree. i don't like today music either. i'm all old school. your not only one i hear a lot people say it too. i think Michael music would be like today music but 10 times better with his REAL voice.
