Here’s a teaser from the much anticipated interview with {tag Ebony} magazine where Jackson talks about something we simply don’t get to hear enough about: HOW HE CREATES MUSIC

Ebony MagazineJACKSON: …What I do when I write is that I’ll do a raggedy, rough version just to hear the chorus, just to see how much I like the chorus.  If it works for me that way when it’s raggedy, then I know it’ll work…

It’s the melody, the melody is most important.  If the melody can sell me, if I like the rough, then I’ll go to the next step.  If it sounds good in my head, it’s usually good when I do it.  The idea is to transcribe from what’s in your mentality onto tape.

If you take a song like “Billie Jean,” where the bass line is the prominent, dominant piece, the protagonist of the song, the main driving riff that you hear, getting the character of the riff to be just the way you want it to be, that takes a lot of time
