New York (ANI): Jay-Z isn"t happy with the remake of 'We Are The
World," which has been recorded to raise relief funds for Haiti. He
thinks that the song shouldn"t have been touched.
"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," the
New York Daily News quoted him as telling told MTVNews.com. “But I
think 'We Are the World' is like (Michael Jackson's) 'Thriller.' I
don't ever wanna see it touched," he added.
The new version of the 25-year-old song – which features stars
from Barbra Streisand to Miley Cyrus to Lil' Wayne – is called "We
Are the World: 25 for Haiti." The 1985 original was produced by
Quincy Jones, who was also involved in the remake, and written by
Jackson and Lionel Richie, who performed along with a veritable
who's who of recording greats, from Tina Turner to Bob Dylan.
