This music Billie Jean was recorded in 1982, and Michaels Jackson and Quincy Jones directed it. This song is considered a pop, R&. This song is one of the rare recordings where one will hear the greatness the first time one hears it. Just like many of his songs, this song also starts with a rhythm. The rhythm is, however, very simple, but its simplicity grabs the attention of the audience. Two rhythm measures are played on the drum set, and then the audience is introduced to the baseline. The baseline offers the song’s foundation. It is also the hook that keeps the audience listening ad following through the entire song. The vocals of Michael Jackson are very emotive as he gives the story of mistrust. He masterly uses his upper register he decorates the melody. His vocal “hiccups” and breathless stutters add taste to the song. The video shows characteristics of pp since t is upbeat and the lyrics are in tune with the pop song. Similarly, the dancing is conventional to pop music.
