Sony want Thriller 40 but the Estate aren’t giving them much to work with.
I forgot that it will be Thriller 40th anniversary next year. I hope they release something. Maybe a re-release with bonus Blu-ray that has Thriller in HD and the making-of documentary. Maybe all the Thriller era short films in HD.

Bit bewildered by what you mean? You want to join weekend forum to try and get to know of the supposed collab?

I still would not be surprised if this is something spooky or aka thriller or threatened? In fact could be threatened re-worked!

anyone knows a MJJC-like forum/board for serious TheWeeknd fan discussions? Maybe there we find even more information regarding a potential MJ collab.
I’m on a different music forum with a music heads on and nothing has been said so far.

A friend of mine has a meeting with a head-guy of universal next week. He will ask for me about any upcoming MJ project.
Universal are behind The Weeknd’s label - so it would be good to ask if this is true

JR didn't do nothing, he just hopped on the possible news, and decided to make himself relevant again.

kind of less excited about this realising it’s probably the weeknd ft mj with probably barely any mj vocals like the drake one. I hope there’s more to come ….

The Weeknd is an incredible artist and he has never had anything less than love and respect for Michael. I think this could be great, if true...

I feel, The Weeknd will do MJ justice with the vocals, if it does come out. He will respect MJ, unlike Drake with the vocals. I think the Weeknd probably put some hard work into the song, instead of just slapping a vox on the track. He probably recorded at Westlake too, to pay some respect to MJ, and the recording crew. If this is true, the track will be #1, and it won't be a slept on track, like Drake's. He has tons of respect for MJ.

Then I feel this will be a duet. Michael would be duetting with different parts of the song. I think he would put Mike all over the song. (if true)

I think it will be more like Say Say Say or Scream, songs that are more of a collaboration with both artists getting equal amount of time on the song.

And even though I am not a Weeknd fan, he is a great vocalist unlike overrated boring Drake. I also don't think he will butcher MJ's vocals with excessive auto tuning like Drake did, so this song will be much better than Don't Matter To Me, in my opinion.

Apparently Sony and MJE aren’t on good terms since the ATV acquisition. MJE heavily considered Universal at one point for the contract.

Sony want Thriller 40 but the Estate aren’t giving them much to work with.

The next project is the musical.

All I know - I will give a name if I can for this information. They’re a well known fan connection - I think they’ve written books on MJ.
There is really no need for Thriller 40, and I say that as someone who is a massive fan of the album. The next anniversary project for Thriller should be in 2032 for Thriller 50.

I am getting excited. Hope the collaboration between Weeknd and MJ is a song that we have never heard of, even though I have a feeling it will be either Starlight (Thriller demo) or Throwing Your Life Away.

That sounds great. And it's about dang time we get some HD short films, just like other artists and bands that have gotten their music videos upscaled to 4K.

If The Weeknd features MJ on a song then the Estate will make damn sure it's The Weeknd & Michael Jackson instead of The Weeknd featuring Michael Jackson. They did it with Drake's song, it says Don't Matter To Me (with Michael Jackson) and not (feat. Michael Jackson).

No one wants to see crappy upscales, they should rescan the original negatives in native 4K. If done right, it'll look like it was shot today. See Wham's Last Christmas MV or Mariah Carey's Fantasy MV for reference. You can even see that the difference is night and day if you compare the "4K" upscales of Thriller and the trailer for Thriller 3D where they rescanned the original film.

That's what I meant by upscale, dude, everyone knows that film is the only thing that can look like true 4K.

Okay, this is 100% happening. The Weeknd and his producers are all talking about MJ with no provocation, at the same time, in increasing amounts? Unless this is an elaborate prank, there’s a collab coming.

i bet if theres a good music video its going to be a really good one. Because the weeknd music videos are good. It'll be better than justin timberlake jumping around a screen. the whole thing of renacting mj music videos or cutting the footage of is getting old. just want something unique shouldnt even show mj
