(AllHipHop News) Michael Jackson is known around the globe as the King of Pop. However, MJ's impact on Hip Hop cannot be denied, so the icon is regularly revered by the culture. He transcends all genres.
Today (August 29) would have been Jackson's 60th birthday. To celebrate, Sony Music and the Estate of Michael Jackson released "Michael Jackson x Mark Ronson: Diamonds are Invincible." Grammy-winning producer/artist/DJ Mark Ronson remixed some of the King's songs into one track.
“It was such an amazing, awe-inspiring and insanely intimidating task to put this together, although you’d need hours and hours to fit all of Michael’s classic tunes into one track," states Ronson. "I wanted this to feel like being on the dancefloor at a sweaty, wild NYC club getting down to as much MJ as possible in five minutes. And I can’t wait for you to all hear the extended version coming soon.”
Additionally, Giuseppe Zanotti announced its limited-edition “Giuseppe Tribute to Michael Jackson" sneaker collection will be available in mid-October in select Giuseppe Zanotti stores and giuseppezanotti.com as well as exclusively at Neiman Marcus and Neimanmarcus.com in America. Each shoe will be numbered in sequence and will feature Swarovski crystals on the fasteners and Michael’s name engraved on the buckle.
Jackson’s birthday is also being saluted with a BOSS capsule collection that features his suit worn on the Thriller cover and three unisex T-shirts highlighting special moments from the entertainer's illustrious career. Plus, Master & Dynamic’s created special limited edition wireless headphones.
