Michael Jackson – Breaking News

Well this certainly is a big lol, isn’t it. I, like nearly everyone who waited to hear Breaking News get released on Monday morning, was thrown into a state of utter confusion upon hearing the first word of vocals in the song…

THIS SOUNDS NOTHING LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON!!

…and it’s true. It doesn’t sound anything like him. The voice is unrecognizable as MJ. The way his own first and last name is repeated in the verse is weird city.  Oh and it’s bad too, in my opinion. It sounds really cheap and immature and is not very catchy. The way the voice says “Michael Jackson” is creepy, like creeper creepy.

But, if I’ve learned anything in the course of the last 16 and 1/2 months, it had better be this:

when the information is confusing or conflicting or seems inexplicable, there’s always more to the story.

You realize of course, for Breaking News to be a fake MJ track makes zero logical sense. Sony paid a record amount for this music, $250 million, the largest music contract in history (Guiness book). But on the surface it appears that  Sony, in a hurry to cash in on anything MJ, threw together a bunch of bogus tracks and remixes with voice impersonators to make up an album to sell to the fans. One could conclude that Breaking News is an example of what will be on the album. Worse, shortly after Breaking News hit the MJJ site on 11/7/10, Sony issues an official statement asserting that the song IS 100% Michael Jackson and in response the fans, assuming that they were going to hear that a mistake had been made and the track would be pulled, were outraged! Sony attests that FBI vocal forensics or some such thing, and all sorts of experts conclude that it is MJ. Two days later the MJJ Estate reaffirms the same story. Fans are beside themselves with anger and despair.

COME ON.

This is by design you realize.

There is no earthy reason for Sony to release this weak track with dubious vocals. No reason what so ever. Sony has access to multiple unreleased hot tracks that we have HEARD (Another Day, Place With No Name, other stuff floating around YouTube RIGHT NOW…) with obvious MJ vocals on them to release. There’s also no reason the vocals NEEDED to be altered like this. Even if you believe MJ is dead, multiple reports following 6/25/09 attest that there are hundreds of fully completed SONGS (not demos, finished songs) that MJ left behind, enough for a dozen albums. No, Sony has everything to lose on this and nothing to gain by committing fraud. Because that’s what this apparent deception would be, you realize.

But… this is by design.

Do you get it? BN really IS him…. the vocal track is just digitally disguised to NOT sound like him. On purpose.

This HAD to happen because the general CD buying public isn’t going to pay one iotta of attention to a new, GOOD MJ release…

They are ONLY going to tune in if it’s a TRAIN WRECK to come gawk at the final destruction of Michael Jackson…

Because even the haters are saying “That’s not MJ…. I mean at least the guy could SING”…. :o ;)

And it CAN’T be fake or else it IS fraud… and Sony is NOT going to do that, they just aren’t going to throw away a billion dollar money making machine over one, weak MJ song…. and they sure as shit are NOT going to pay $250 million for fake bogus garbage music.

SO LET’S GET REAL HERE.

It’s marketing.

And it’s very clever.

People are flocking to YouTube to compare BN to MJ’s real voice, and they all got a reminder of who the greatest singer in the world is. Because simply, even in demos, even in rough tracks, even in short, leaked snippets with someone’s voice talking all over it, even while sitting on the witness stand recorded by the court’s audio system… Michael Jackson is the greatest and his voice is classic. TII sent everyone to You Tube to see his old dance footage, and remind them that he is the master…. now Breaking News is sending them in search of his voice.

Discover the man you never knew.

I’ve heard the capella of Breaking News, (which gets yanked so fast off You Tube by Sony copyright I won’t even bother posting the link)  and the audio track is Michael Jackson, but here’s the trick. The vocal track is altered but not filtered. It’s like manually stretched in places and lowered in  others, not altered at all in parts and then stretched again. It’s sort of fun house mirror effect in sound, sometimes word by word, I don’t know how to explain it but I laughed when I heard it. It sounds almost like they cut and pasted MJ and “the impersonator” together to form a full line of the song… like a kidnappers note except in song version. The resulting sound IS funny and IS outrageous and LOOKS very, very scandalous. But it’s legal and legitimately all Michael Jackson’s voice. I doubt this version of the song will make the album, lol, but with Michael Jackson, who knows.

Ps. 777 is in the video for Breaking News by the way. On one of the TV panels, the knobs. Check it out.
The whole thing is really, really smart. Genius actually. It’s got MJs stink all over it. He’s playing a prank to get attention for his comeback…

I mean TAKE OVER!

This will be the first of multiple entries because developments are coming fast this week.

    • Yes, the opening frame with all the TVs… center TV which has the word “Breaking” on the screen… the 3 knobs to the right of the screen, vertical position, they look like 777. Quite clear.
