Michael Jackson - The Girl Is Mine 2008 (with Will.i.am) + Thriller events

Michael Jackson - The Girl Is Mine

"The Girl Is Mine" is one of the best known tracks from Thriller (who of a certain age doesn't know the Paul McCartney / Michael Jackson exchange by heart?) and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the world's best-selling album, Black Eyed Peas maestro Will.i.am gives the single a brand new super fresh feel.

Taking over duetting duties from Sir Paul, on the "The Girl Is Mine 2008", will.i.am mixes in a funky, updated sound to the track which will appeal to younger fans approaching the song with fresh ears, as well as keep the original Michael Jackson crowd mighty pleased.

A couple of sneak previews from the ever-supportive MJ News Online (Michael Jackson Fan Club) and Michael Jackson News Network have drawn highly positive reactions:

"This track is much more than a classic remix - Will and Michael have made it a song in its own right" - MJ News Online
