    Default Which current pop music would/could have inspired Michael's own music?

    When I listen to Tame Impala with it's retro feel I kind of have the feeling that Michael would have liked working with these guys/guy.
    They make retro sound modern, they make very catchy music with good hooks which was important for MJ.
    They make me think of how the Beatles could have sounded as well if they were created around this time.

    Hopefully this thread will make me familiar with lots of new artists!

    I think he would have liked to have worked with The Weekend

    Probably Bruno Mars, who is one of the few good music artists around today.

    Agreed. His 24K Magic album is great. I don't like his previous music though. I think he's improved a lot as an artist.

    If some of you haven't seen videos of his 24K tour, check em out. It's like a Triumph and Bad tour show mixed together

    What about sounds wise? Which direction would MJ have gone in if he was still recording now? I think it would be electronic based with not much physical instruments present
    I personally don't think he would work with the weekend or Bruno Mars those are too obvious.
    Of course the big question is if he would still be making pop music as he stated several times he'd like to produce film music.

    I don't see much evidence that Mike tried to go for older sounds on his albums, but generally went with whatever sound or producer that was popular at the moment. A retro act would be like Jamiroquai, Sharon Jones, or Michael Bublé. So I figure there would be collabos with Migos & trap beats.

    But tame Impala manages to sound retro while being modern that is why I feel Michael would have liked this guy.

    I'd like to think it'd be more like other artists seeking collaboration with MJ, not MJ seeking collaboration with other artists. Would he still even be in the music industry at this point in his life? He would've turned 62 in August, he's basically a senior citizen at this point. If he could still sing and dance at this age, I wouldn't be surprised because of TII

    I think MJ’s music would be way more mature than today’s artists. I would say none of them he would stay true to himself and reinvent his music as he always does.

    Ive always wondered what Daft Punk would produce for MJ. I also think Kaytranada is a very talented and experimental producer. It would be awesome!

    Probably BTS. Are there really any modern artists worth Michael's collaboration? It's better to blast the hits than hear his take in the modern music climate. Well, I wouldn't be against artists using Michael as an instrumental backbone rather than a featured artist because the man can compose a song by just beatboxing. Why create a beat when Michael can do so with just a microphone?
