It's one of the great question of our time: “What would Michael Jackson be up to if he were still around to today?” Would he go into a more R&B direction? Would he maybe take on some gospel music notes alá Kanye West? What about Trap? What would MJ sound like if he cooked up a song with either Metro Boomin or Southside for instance behind the boards? Well now, thankfully due to the hard work of a YouTube user named OG Cano, we have our answer to that last hypothetical.
In a hilarious video for the mock song “Billie Jean I Dab,” a Jackson impersonator, sings, dances, and “shamones” to a syrupy trap beat bouncing around in the background. This is actually the second video that Cano had uploaded to YouTube that takes on the MJ/Trap equation. He also posted another clip last week simply titled, “If Michael Jackson Made Trap Music.” You can catch that one below, and the newer offering “Billie Jean I Dab” above.
