Posted By on October 7, 2009

     You might want to pick up the new issue of NME magazine. In it, Jay-Z pays tribute to the legend Michael Jackson, even revealing that Jigga collaborated with Jackson multiple times, something that was until now unknown. According to Jay-Z, Michael sang on "Girls, Girls, Girls," a track from the original "Blueprint" album. "He was on my song ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, singing these background vocals and I didn’t even put his name on it," Jay wrote. [Jay-Z "Girls, Girls, Girls" (With Michael Jackson) – Watch Here]

     HOV apparently teamed up with the King Of Pop on "You Rock My World" too plus brought him on stage during his 2001 Summer Jam performance. "He played a concert with me in New York, which was great," Jay continued. "He got up and he walked out and the place went mental, guys were just grabbing their hats and throwing them like, 'Aiiiiiiiiiieeeeee!'"

     Jay then went on to talk about MJ's death. "I try to look for the meaning in things that happen, and it was a tragedy that Michael Jackson passed away, especially for his kids," he said. "But on the other side, I think it gave Michael a chance to be celebrated for the genius he was without all the other stuff in the way, and I don’t know if that would ever have happened had he been alive."
