Michael Jackson ‘Bad’ Remix Debuts Courtesy of Pitbull, Afrojack and DJ Buddha

Sony Legacy

A brand new remix of Michael Jackson’s legendary song “Bad” has emerged courtesy of Dutch EDM DJ Afrojack, rapper Pitbull and DJ Buddha, and The BoomBox has an exclusive first listen. The effort is part of a special 25th anniversary edition of the King of Pop’s seventh studio album. Titled Bad 25, the forthcoming LP debuts Sept. 18.

The new “Bad” remix features much more modern rhythms, a speedier beat and a heavier bass line in place of ’80s-era synthesizers — all the handiwork of Afrojack and DJ Buddha. Pitbull also raps brand new verses, calling his version of the song “a toast to the king for life.” The track is truly a modern take on Jackson’s classic song.

Included in the deluxe album set are three CDS, two collectible booklets and the first ever authorized DVD release from the Bad World Tour, which took place on July 16, 1988, when Jackson played to a sold-out crowd at the Wembley Stadium in London.

The first CD features re-mastered versions of the original “Bad” hits, the second offers a listen to 13 rare tracks — six of which are previously unreleased demos — and the third is the audio version of the Wembley Stadium concert.

The entire set is available for pre-order here.
