A “Lil Positivity”: Ne-Yo, Pepsi, And Billboard Celebrate The 25th Anniversary Of MJ’s ‘Bad’

- By Bossip Staff

Who’s Bad? Ne-Yo stepped out with Swizz Beatz, RaVaughn, and up and coming artist Melanie Fiona to pay tribute to the King of Pop and the anniversary of MJ’s BAD.

Pepsi and Billboard celebrated the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s classic album Bad during the fourth and final part of its Summer Beats concert series at New York City’s Gotham Hall on Aug. 29 — a night that would have been the singer’s 54th birthday. R&B singers Ne-Yo and Melanie Fiona each performed full-length sets that coupled their own hits with remakes of classic Bad tracks like “Smooth Criminal,” “Dirty Diana” and the title track. DJ Cassidy spun other classic Jackson jams like “Rock With You” in between sets, while Swizz Beatz closed out the night with a headlining set that included Rihanna’s “We Found Love” and some of his own famous productions for rappers like DMX.
