Proving that some things are better left untouched, T-Pain and Robin Thicke have remade the Michael Jackson classic “P.Y.T.” at the request of Quincy Jones (who is getting up in age and maybe he’s a tad senile… ok, that’s the only excuse I have for this mess). Take a listen:
Anywho… Teddy Pain is getting quite a bit of innaweb hatred over the song but he’s firing back (via Twitter):
For all the ppl that hate mr for ruining pyt just stop listening to my shit. But if Quincy jones tell you he want you to do something, no matter how much shot you know ur gonna get from the dumb asses in the world, you god damn do it. The fucked up thing is everybody being so kind to mj after he’s gone, but how can you wish a man to rest in peace when you never gave him peace in a life time? I had the pleasure of meeting MJ and when I left his house I got a call from his lawyer telling mr that MJ wanted me to remake that song. So everybody that’s being overly disrespectful, you don’t have to like me at all, but you also can keep that bullshit to yourself. Like I said I’m making it my job to stay positive on twitter but this is why the image of my ppl is so fucked up cuz we all are to envious and jealous of each other to get passed anything. In conclusion, if you don’t like what I do then stop listening to it, if somebody tells you that my shit is wak, why would you go and try to find it? Just stay off my timeline and my dick and get YO shit together, obviously I’m str8 yasimelike
I’m usually of the belief that a good thing should just be left alone. Case in point: classics like Quincy Jones’ baby-making ballad “Secret Garden.” This song was a hit when I had no real clue how to make a baby in the first place, but I sure got a better idea after listening to it.
Anywho, Usher and Robin Thicke have remade “Secret Garden” for Quincy Jones’ new project (produced by Jermaine Dupri). I’m gonna jump out the window here and say I don’t like it. And I really hate not liking it because I tend to like all things Thicke. Hell, I loved Robin even when he was a grungy little thing.
But, you take a listen and tell us what you think.
Can’t say I ever saw this one coming: a Quincy Jones & Akon collabo? Jones is remaking a few of his classics with a twist: that twist would be letting modern, hip-hop acts put their spin on the music. First up, Akon. Check the new vid for the “Strawberry Letter 23″ remake.
Did Quincy get that jacket from the Liberace collection?
The album, “Q: Soul Bossa Nostra,” is due later this spring or summer. Other artists/producers contributing to the project: Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, Scott Storch, Trey Songz, Robin Thicke, Tevin Campbell, Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Hudson and Ludacris.
