Ne-Yo discusses writing Michael Jackson’s new upcoming comeback album:
“I’m not trying to top Thriller. Anybody trying to top something that’s already been done is fighting a losing battle. It was a different industry back then, a different way of thinking and people were easier to impress. Everything in music has been done now, so Michael needs to find his place again.”
I guess it would be hard to top the creative genius of that Thriller album, but it hasn’t been hard for Ne-Yo (among others) to imitate the choreography. Honestly, I think Michael should just keep it in the closet, not really interested in him making a comeback even if the hottest songwriting mer-man (man mermaid) in the game right now is doing the writing.
