Michael Jackson, Remixed: Akon Takes on 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'

Posted on

So, folks, in celebration of Thriller‘s 25th anniversary, Michael Jackson, Will.I.Am, and Akon have remixed/remade “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” which, aside from being a legitimately slammin’ song, gave the world the “Mama say, mama sa, mama mu sa” refrain.

To me, this remix is kind of unnecessary, given the fact that you can still get any house party jumping by putting the original on. So, what do you think?
