Justin Bieber's Michael Jackson 'Slave To The Rhythm' Remix Leaks Online

Justin Bieber has summoned inspiration from the King of Pop on a newly remastered song that has now leaked online. Michael Jackson's "Slave to the Rhythm," a little-known track released posthumously in 2010, has received an electronic update courtesy of the Biebs.

It's unclear where the track was originally intended to appear. The 2010 version was produced by Tricky Stewart, who worked on Bieber's "Baby" as well as megahits from Rihanna, Beyonce and Mariah Carey.

Bieber took to Twitter on Friday a few hours before the leak to announce that "big things are ahead."

Bieber's update leaves Jackson's vocals intact, while the music has been amplified to sound like just about every other remix released over the past two years. But don't let us tell you that -- listen for yourself and decide whether this is a dance-worthy effort from the Jackson protege.
