Black and White entertainment branding is all the rage here, since MJ died. The truth is, it has always been hot. If I was following the political agenda of arts and culture in America right now, I would do a white person’s blog post, a black persons blog post, and then every 5th post, would be a Latino, or other ethnicity.
That’s the rhetoric that US pop culture is heading in. Have you ever wondered why JLo was everywhere right now?
One thing is for sure, black and white branding of all US entertainment texts is normal. But it gets hotter when the US crosses over to the UK and vis-a-viz, like Robin Thicke and Estelle do in this collaborative hit. Very very Michael Jackson-esque and I love it.
Thicke takes Janet Jackson‘s roller coaster song, adds MJ vocal arrangelemnts and Scream lyrics to achieve this jawn. Here’s Rollercaster. Nice job! Robin Thicke is second generation show biz, ironicly church-raised in LA, and he is a model citizen of the USA’s present and future direction. Love these two world-changing crazy kids in this song.
Rollercoaster make you scream, make you scream…
