    Default Did Michael ever considered a duet with James Brown? [MERGED]

    Just wondering about why we never heard or read anything about a duet with MJ and James Brown...
    Michael considered him a truly Maestro and "his greatest inspiration" on many occasions.
    It's highly unlikely that they never wrote, arranged or simply rehearsed something together in over 30-40 years of career.
    Yet, we don't have any clue of unreleased material about them (neither a project of it).
    What do you think about it?

    Why did nobody ever ask him questions like these?

    Probably because Michael didn't want to overshadow James Brown and, as a form of respect to his greatest inspiration, refused to do it

    Michael overshadow James Brown? lol. Michael got his inspiration from him. so i don't think a duet would overshadowed neither of them. they were both legends. i would see that as a awesome duet to me.

    may they both r.i.p

    Yeah, nobody was going to outshine nobody here. Imo James Brown is one of the most overlooked singers of all time. He was such a force. He could reach G6’s effortlessly and had his own vocal trademarks such as the grunts, screams, shrieks. He could sing any crowd into a frenzy and on top of that he was a master showman and dancer. Put some respect on his name!

    I agree. James Brown need more respect than he gets. he need to be talked about more. that being said we probably wouldn't have Michael without James Brown. so thanks to the grandfather of soul.

    Michael is the perfect example of a pupil that has surpassed his master (a great quote by my compatriot Leonardo Da Vinci), so I have that feeling that Michael would have overshadowed him.

    This could be a good reason. But Michael came with multiple duets with Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger (and duets with Prince, Madonna, Whitney Houston were planned). All people who - of course - didn't need any publicity and - for sure - couldn't be overshadowed, neither by Michael Jackson at his peak
