10 Times Michael Jackson Was the King of Cover Songs

August 29, 1958. Seems like a fairly insignificant date, right? But that was the day a legend was born. A legend who would change the face of pop music forever. His name was Michael Jackson.

There was no doubt that Michael was destined for greatness. After all, he charmed everyone with his vocals, right from the tender age of 7. He truly was the King of Pop. But what most people don’t know is that MJ was also the King of Cover Songs. Throughout his career, and even posthumously, Michael’s covers have put some iconic originals to shame. Don’t just take our word for it, though. Here are 10 songs that prove that MJ was the King of Cover Songs:

Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day by Stevie Wonder

If there was one musician in history who could do justice to a Stevie Wonder cover, it was Michael Jackson. His cover of Shoo-Be-Doo-Be-Doo-Da-Day is proof of just that.

Love Never Felt So Good by Johnny Mathis

What do you get when you put Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake together? Pop perfection, across two generations! The duo’s cover of Love Never Felt So Good is a stunning interpretation of Johnny Mathis‘ iconic song.
