The pop star turns back the clock on this cover of 'Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground).'
Justin Timberlake, arguably the top pop artist today, paid tribute to the original King of Pop last week with this over-the-top cover version of The Jackson 5's 'Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground)' on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge.
No doubt, this cover will raise comparisons -- deserved or not -- between MJ and the 32-year-old Timberlake, who drops his '20/20 Experience 2 of 2' Tuesday. For comparison, Jackson released his legendary 'Bad' album when he was only 29.
“You get to this point, which I’ve done in the last five or six years, where you become less worried about success and failure,” he told The New York Times recently.
