Michael Jackson “Rock With You” (Marksmen Remix)

The production team the Marksmen have created an amazing mash-up album called The King Meets The President in Africa. The album blends together the vocals of “King of Pop” Michael Jackson and Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, “The Black President.” The  record features eight Jackson/Kuti mash-ups including a conceptually clever mash-up of Jackson’s “Thriller” and Kuti’s “Zombie.” The record also includes one bonus track, a great Afro-Brazilian samba remix of Jackson’s “Rock With You.” Imagine Michael Jackson singing with the Buena Vista Social Club and you’ll have an idea of what this sounds like…or you could just check out the video below. The King Meets The President in Africa can be downloaded for free here.
