  • Do The Bartman (1990) (Bryan Loren)
    Alternative titles: Bart Man / Do The Bart Man
    "Bart Simpson" (voice actor: Nancy Cartwright)
    Produced by Bryan Loren
    First of only two direct participations by Michael Jackson with
    the famous cartoon series THE SIMPSONS (see "Happy Birthday,
    Lisa" for his second involvement). In February 1998 creator Matt
    Groening acknowledged at the second annual World Animation
    Celebration in Pasadena, USA, that Michael Jackson did in fact sing
    on the song. The song became a #1 hit in several countries (e.g. in the UK).

    Michael Jackson sings Background Vocals (together with Bryan Loren)
    (Michael Jackson can clearly be heard singing the line "Do The Bartman"
    during the chorus, the rest of the chorus is sung together by him and
    Bryan Loren, so that their voices almost merge to one.)

    Developed after Michael was asked to write the theme to Addams Family
    Values (1993)
    which he finally declined. Michael came up with the idea to
    create his own spine-chiller. Its initial name was IS IT SCARY and Michael
    asked Stephen King to help him writing the story. After the child molestation
    accusations had passed it turned out to become a fourty minutes lasting
    mini-movie. Originally it only consisted of its title track and some harmonic
    melodies, but Michael later wrote Ghosts as the new main theme and also
    included the song 2 Bad (1995) from his album HISTORY - PAST, PRESENT
    AND FUTURE - BOOK I (1995)

    Due to censorship concerning the treatment of drugs in some Far Eastern countries
    the song title had to be changed. It has since been published as Just Say No. It was
    a way for Michael to work up his dependency on prescribed drugs in late 1993.

  • We Be Ballin' (1997/1998) (Rick "Dutch" Cousin, ???)
    Ice Cube aka O'Shea Jackson
    Remix of We Be Clubbin' (1997), the hit-theme of the movie THE PLAYER'S CLUB (1997).
    Features
    Michael Jackson (on chorus), Shaquille O'Neal (spoken intro + verses)
    Produced in 1998 in the A&M recording studios in Hollywood, California.
    This remix was to be released on a NBA compilation album scheduled for the end of 1997
    and was also going to be featured in commercials for NBA's "I Love This Game" campaign.
    Michael Jackson was brought on this project by Shaquille O'Neal who has previously
    guest-starred on the track "2 Bad" on the album HISTORY - PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE
    - BOOK I (1995)
    .
    The entire project was finally shelved due to the player iniated strike against the league
    that year.
    • (Master Mix - 5:02, and Street Mix - 5:14) Ice Cube: "We Be Ballin' "
      (Single Test Pressing, Post production Acetate CD, 1998)
      The "Master Mix" on this acetate abruptly ends at 4:47 and is silent for the remaining
      playtime. However a proceeding beat can be faintly detected in the background for a
      few seconds. This curiosity is based on the fact that production on the song was rushed
      and not finished for this master.
    • (Master Mix - 5:07) Ice Cube: "We Be Clubbin' "
      (Single, Promo-CD, 1998)
      This Promo-CD features Ice Cube's We Be Clubbin' plus five remixes and
      as the 7th track on the disc the complete "Master Mix" of WE BE BALLIN'.

      (Album, CD, 2003)
    <<<ATTENTION - THE FAKES>>>
    • Fan-made FAKE version (4:50 /or 5:14 since April 2008)
      SPREAD in mid 2005
      This FAKE DOES NOT(!) feature Ice Cube at all. It mixed the 2003 remake with
      JMC Mob, Raz-B & Co. with one of actually three slightly different choruses by MJ plus
      one verse by Shaquille O'Neal.
      NOTE: Around APRIL 2008 someone extended this FAKE version once again (having a
      playtime of 5:14 now) in some attempt to make it look like it would be the "Street Mix"
      which IS NOT TRUE(!) as the real version is 1) professionally mastered and 2) sounds
      extremely different.
      This new FAKE had a bit better sound quality as it did not have dropouts any longer.
    <<<THE REAL VERSIONS>>>
    • Master Mix (5:07)
      Two leaks of this:
      • (5:02, the song abruptly ends at 4:46 and the remaining playtime is silent)
        LEAKED from Test Pressing on June 21st, 2008
      • (5:07, the song is complete and has a fade out)
        LEAKED from Promo-CD on July 12th, 2008 (Source: Dangerous Incorporated / MJJC)
      Michael Jackson sings the chorus three times and each time slightly different. The last
      chorus is a longer one with more vocals.
      Furthermore the "Master Mix" also includes all vocals by Ice Cube and Shaquille O'Neal,
      features professional production and mastering and has superb sound quality.
    • Street Mix (5:14)
      LEAKED on June 21st, 2008
      The "Street Mix" gives the song a more edgy and urban feel. It's very different in
      production, style when compared to the "Master Mix" and turns the end of the song
      into an acappella by Ice Cube. It features all the vocals from the "Master Mix".
    • Work In Progress (5:33)
      LEAKED on April 30th, 2009 (Source: unknown user / MJJC)
      This version was an early work on the remix with Shaq & Mike. It uses much musical
      elements from the 1997 original We Be Clubbin' and Mike sings the chorus only two
      times here (the 2nd chorus being the longer one). The track contains some vocals
      that were later dropped from the final version (some others are missing here) and
      ends with an instrumental passage.

    place in June 1999 in Seoul, South Korea, and in Munich, Germany.
    It was recorded afterwards and became an outtake of the album INVINCIBLE (2001).

    Originally intended for the album INVINCIBLE (2001)

    AOL Music and Tonos Entertainment launched a songwriting-contest whose
    winner, Ric Kipp, provides the lyrics for the song. But it has never been recorded.

    This contest is actually confusing because Michael said in an interview with American
    magazine TV Guide in November 1999 that the song is "a millennium song about the
    world and the environment, that [he] wrote with Carole Bayer Sager and David Foster".
    Now this indicates that the contest is needless because the lyrics existed already.
