Stream: Michael Jackson - Breaking News

Say what you want, but Michael Jackson's Breaking News is a jam. Stop with the "is it or isn't him" on the vocals tip. People, c'mon...it is. Think of his life and how it ended and under what stresses his chords were under and then you try and sing like Billie Jean was still not your lover. End rant.




Stream the new single here.


Michael Jackson's new album, Michael, is out in December 2010. Pre-order here.







Beastly Bits #103

This has been such a long week. Anyone else feeling the grind?


Thank the beastly heavens that it's Friday...don't know if I could have lasted one more workday in this hustle. What I can tolerate is the radness below. We ride!

Purple Crush - Beat It (Michael Jackson Cover)

It's been well over two years since I first fell in love with Purple Crush. And while they cease to call NYC home these days, it seems as if the sunny shores of California are treating them just as fine...seeing as how they've got a new dose of the awesome to hit us with today.



It was Purple Crush's cover of Madonna' Physical Attraction that had initially won over my beastly attention, and since then, they've tackled the likes of Kanye West and Chris Isaak. But now, they head back to the beloved 80's with a cover of Michael Jackson's Beat It.


Jackson purists...hush. Give this gem of a dance floor ditty a chance. You will thank me later, after you wipe the sweat from your brow.


Additionally, be on the lookout for Purple Crush's' new original tune, The Original, and subsequent video. Don't worry...we'll be waiting and ready for it.
