16 Feb Jay-Z Says No Thanks To “We Are The World” Remake
Many of you commented that you don’t like the new “We Are the World 25 For Haiti” remake that debuted at the Olympics. Jay-Z feels the same way, telling MTV News:
“I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: ‘We Are the World,’ I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great,” Jay reasoned. “But I think ‘We Are the World’ is like [Michael Jackson’s] Thriller to me. I don’t ever want to see it touched.”
There were a lot of hip-hop artists on the track including Lil Wayne, LL Cool J, Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz and Kanye West. But no Jay-Z. He says that he would have preferred that Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie write a new track to help the cause.
Do you agree with Jay-Z’s comments or do you think he should have made an effort to show his support for Haiti? -Dr.FB
