Ne-Yo Gets Approval From Michael Jackson For Tribute Track

Ne-Yo is hard at work on his third album, Year of the Gentleman, and if you’ve paid attention to his releases, there’s a theme that is constant on each of them — his love for music icon, Michael Jackson, is always present.

The R&B singer-songwriter is a huge MJ fan, and is currently working with the King of Pop. When he played a track, in which he pays homage to Jackson, the pop icon loved it.

They bill themselves as “The Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band,” and though they set themselves up with a name that is easy pickings for any wiseguy critic to tee off on, Who’s Bad actually isn’t half bad.

The group from Chapel Hill, N.C., delivers a sound that, believe it or not, if you’re not too nit-picky and not too in need of the gloved one’s uber-high pitch, approaches a Vegas-grade…imitation of the King of Pop.
