Los Angeles, Calif.-Hollywood has broken down into tears upon learning Michael Jackson’s sudden death, and while most celebs stormed Twitter to share their thoughts and sentiments about the loss of an icon, the music community meanwhile went a step further by doing a tribute song to the King of Pop.
Sean “Diddy” Combs, Boyz II Men, Chris Brown, Polo, The Game and Mario Winans collaborated on the song “Better On The Other Side,” to pay tribute to the musical legend.
“You made the world dance/You made the music come to life,” opens Diddy in the song.
“Look up in the sky and I wonder why, why you had to go/And now it’s better on the other side,” Chris then enters with the succeeding lyrics.
A true legend he was, Michael Jackson garnered 13 number one hit singles, won 13 Grammy Awards, and was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
“Better On The Other Side” is Diddy’s second tribute song to have worked on. The first was in 1998, when he, alongside Faith Hill and 112, paid tribute to rapper Notorious B.I.G. via the song “I’ll Be Missing You,” a rework of The Police’s “Every Breath You Take.”
