Michael Jackson – Hollywood Tonight on – 107pfm.net

“Hollywood Tonight” is a song by American recording artist Michael Jackson, included on his posthumous album, Michael. The song was released by Epic Records on February 11, 2011, as the second single from Michael. The spoken parts were performed by Jackson’s nephew, Taryll Jackson and written by Teddy Riley. An accompanying music video was released on March 10, 2011. It features Algeria-born French dancer Sofia Boutella dressed in a Jackson-inspired outfit performing a routine with 60 dancers.
The song was written by Michael Jackson during the time of the Invincible album. Michael pulled the track out of the archives in 2007 to work on the song with producer Theron “Neff-U” Feemster.
In October 2008, when Jackson lived in Los Angeles, he asked recording engineer Michael Prince to put the latest mix of the song on CD so he could listen to it and see what might be improved, but he never got around to working on it again. Teddy Riley co-produced the song along with Theron “Neff-U” Feemster following Jackson’s death. Riley also wrote a new bridge, performed by Taryll Jackson, that included different lyrics than those left by Jackson.
