In a statement to shock the world, Quincy Jones, who produced Michael Jackson’s most successful album “Thriller”, divulged that the late superstar actually stole many of his popular numbers.
The music producer, who is pushing 90 this year, told an online culture portal of a New York-based magazine that contrary to popular belief, Michael Jackson isn’t the musical genius everyone thinks he is.
He pointed out similarities between Jackson’s greatest hits like “Billie Jean” and some of the trending songs back in the ‘80s.
As an expert in the field, the uncanny resemblance of the bass notes did not escape his ears.
Jones also expressed his dissatisfaction of what he thought was unfair treatment by the King of Pop to his keyboardist for the song “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”, expounding that the singer should have at least given a larger percentage of the royalties than what was originally allotted for the musician.
After winning a court case for royalties from MJ’s posthumous releases, Quincy Jones has turned to video streaming as his next venture, launching Qwest TV, which focuses on jazz.
