'New' Michael Jackson song featuring Justin Bieber appears online - listen

Jackson recorded 'Slave 2 The Rhythm' before his death and it's now been updated to include vocals from Bieber

A "new" song by the late Michael Jackson featuring vocals from Justin Bieber has appeared online. Press 'play' to listen to it.

Titled 'Slave 2 The Rhythm', the track surfaced yesterday (August 16) and has already had its first play on Capital FM. Jackson recorded the track before his death in June 2009 and it's recently been updated to include guest vocals from Bieber.

Shortly before 'Slave 2 The Rhythm' appeared online Bieber had used Twitter to hint that something was on its way.


Speaking last year (2012), producer Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins, who has worked with both Jackson and Bieber, said that he believes he could have arranged a collaboration between the two artists. "I think if Michael Jackson was alive I would have been able to make a meeting happen and actually get them to do something together," Jerkins said at the time.

However, at present it's yet to be confirmed which producer(s) worked on 'Slave 2 The Rhythm' or even if the track is to get a full release. Jackson's only album of posthumous material to date, 'Michael', came out in 2010 and featured contributions from Akon, 50 Cent and Lenny Kravitz.
