Michael Jackson - Billie Jean (Kanye West Remix)

By | Posted December 20, 2007
Artist: Michael Jackson
Track: Billie Jean (Kanye West Remix)
Feat. Kanye West
Producer: Kanye West
Album: Thriller (25th Anniversary Ed.)

On February 12, 2008, the world will be blessed with a 25th Anniversary re-release of the greatest selling album of all-time, Michael Jackson’s Thriller.  The album will include the original track listing and an additional eight bonus tracks.  In addition to collaborations with Akon (Wanna Be Startin’ Something), will.i.am (Pretty Young Thing), and Fergie (Beat It), Kanye West has remixed the classic Jackson hit, Billie Jean.  The musical alterations are minimal as West only changed out the bassline and infused a heavier and more distinguished beat.  Of course, it wouldn’t be a true “Kanye remix” if the mixed and mastered version didn’t include a ‘Ye made-famous “uuuh” or “yeeeh;” after all, who better to remix Billie Jean than a current king of pop?
