A song recorded by Michael Jackson featuring the vocals of Justin Bieber has made its way online. The King of Pop wrote “Slave to the Rhythm” before his death in 2009, and Justin has added his vocals to the song.

The track was originally sung by Michael himself, but a new remix just surfaced on YouTube, with heavier dance beats and Justin’s vocals added.
It’s not known for sure whether Justin’s camp has officially recorded the remix or it’s just created by a fan. However, the 19-year-old singer has acknowledged the existence of the song with tweets.
“Excited for what is to come. MJ set the bar,” he wrote. “Not only for music but for being an entertainer and how u treat the fans. Wish he was here. All of it is not always easy but it is a blessing. We can change the word.
“I’m up for the challenge. Big things ahead! #greatness. love you.”
It’s also unclear if the remix would be officially released.

But Michael’s heiress, Paris Jackson, is unlikely to approve the Canadian singer’s collaboration with her late father. Apparently, Michael’s second child and only daughter, who is recovering from her attempted suicide attempt in June, thought Justin is a “terrible role model for young girls.”
“She was enraged after some of Justin’s female fans started tweeting about cutting themselves as an expression of love for the singer and he went radio silent, rather than talking the girls out of it,” sources told TMZ in June.
“We’re told Paris got very angry after seeing the pics TMZ posted of Justin smoking weed in a hotel room in early January. She thinks he owes his fans more as a role model,” the celebrity Web site continued, adding that Paris thought Justin’s various missteps are a “disgrace,” and that she used the word “hate” to describe her feelings towards him.
Meanwhile, a devastatingly bad news for American Beliebers. The Canadian tween heartthrob is reportedly in danger of getting banned from the U.S. if he is convicted of assault or battery in connection with his indirect involvement in an alleged brawl outside a New York nightclub.
According to Star magazine, police are currently investigating an incident in August wherein Justin’s security guards are being accused of intimidating other club-goers.
Immigration attorney Richard Yemm told the gossip magazine that Justin could be placed into removal proceedings from the United States if he is charged of assault.
