Thriller (Special 25th Anniversary Edition)

As rumors begin to swirl about a new studio album from Michael Jackson in May of ‘08, a similar hit maker has done a cover of one of MJ’s classic records.  For a special “25th Anniversary Edition” of the epic album, Thriller, Akon has taken the dance floor sensation, Wanna Be Starting Something, and added his own modern-day touch.  As one of four renewed songs on the commemorative project the production work can be fully credited to Kon, who did his part to keep the song as Michael-esque as can be.
