Former MJJ President Jerry Greenberg and 769 Entertainment is announcing an international celebration of Michael Jackson today on his 60th birthday. The project, consisting of four singles released over a ten month period, will culminate with a special four-song EP box set.
The first single and video homage “Let’s Shut Up and Dance” will feature recording artist and song co-writer Jason Derulo, Asian pop stars LAY ZHANG from the group EXO and NCT 127, among other top artists to be announced. The track is executive produced by Derulo manager, Frank Harris, produced by Bongo ByTheWay with A&R credit going to Hakeem Harris.
“Having worked with MJJ Music for over ten years, I became close to Michael and understand his incredible impact around the world,” says Greenberg, now Chairman of 769 Entertainment. “Michael Jackson’s influence is timeless and many generations, including today’s, have benefited greatly from his contributions to dance, music and culture.” About the project, he adds, “The video will show the tremendous impact Michael has had on the world of dance. He was all about diversity and inclusion bringing us all together through his artistry. Our hope is that through this special project, we can all come together in these challenging times and celebrate him, and to continue to keep his legacy alive for generations to come. We’re working closely with Taryll Jackson on behalf of the family.”
“Let’s Shut Up and Dance” was cowritten by pop music icon Jason Derulo, the voice behind the monster hit “Talk Dirty,” Kanye West’s “All Mine” collaborator Ant Clemons, as well as former L&F member, and “Let’s Shut Up and Dance” producer Bongo ByTheWay.
