New Music: Wale – ‘My P.Y.T’

Calling all pretty young things. Wale is back to serenade the ladies on his new single “My P.Y.T,” which pays homage to Michael Jackson’s Thriller classic. In addition to borrowing lyrics from the King of Pop, the self-proclaimed “James Bond ni**a” crowns his queen and promises to be the only man she needs.

“I wanna love you, pretty young thing / You need some lovin’ from a real one,” he sings on The Dope Boyz-produced track.

The day he wrote the record, he met MJ’s mother, Katherine Jackson. “It inspired me so much that it was pretty much all I could think about in the studio later that night,” Wale told EW. “I wanted to pay homage to the legend that is Michael in some way, and the chorus popped into my head and just felt right with the music. It’s just one of those songs that’s been omnipresent in my life since I was a kid.”

The D.C. spitter has been in the studio working on his fifth album SHINE (Still Here Ignoring Negative Energy), the follow-up to 2015’s The Album About Nothing, due this fall.

“This is my first upbeat, ‘for the clubs’ record in years,” he added. “I’m coming back with an album of straight hits.”

MJJPassion: The Official Start Of Dejavu Week

This really cool idea came from an amazing member at a discussion forum MJJ ETERNAL! She posted a topic discussing songs from other artists that remind us of MJ. I’m a huge music lover to begin with, so the topic there was so much fun to participate in. No one can ever amount to the genius that Michael was (in my opinion), but have you ever heard a song that made you stop to think (something that was similar). Something like a catchy song that had a MJ feel? I decided to compile a short list of songs/videos to get this thing started! Here’s the official start of MJJP Dejavu Week, we’re counting down from ten.

Thanks AshballforLove♥, for such an amazing topic!

 

10. Conqueror- Jussie Smollett & Estelle


Jussie Smollett (born June 21, 1983) is an American actor, singer and photographer. On this single found on Fox’s hit show Empire, his smooth falsettos, and tender tempo makes our heart warm inside. Jussie has told interviewers in the past that he is still a huge Michael fan, he’s been quoted saying:

“But you cannot allow people to just spew hate and be ok. I have a tattoo that’s the first line in “Man in the Mirror” that says, “I’m going to make a change.” And I just feel that, as tenant’s of this earth it’s our job to make a difference and make the world better and we can’t just sit around and let people spew nasty things and just think that’s ok. It’s not ok.”- Jussie Smollett 2015

9. Last NightJustin Timberlake

 

It has been pushing over nearly 12 years since Justin Timberlake released his first solo album Justified. The 8th track off this album titled Last Night, is a very pop filled melody that gives us a sure MJ feel. The track was written by Pharell Williams, and was originally meant to be recorded by Michael. Things didn’t work out, and the track ended up in the hands of Mr. Timberlake. Take a listen, what do you think?
