Jason Derulo Channels Michael Jackson With New Video -- Does He Do the King of Pop Justice?
By Sophie Schillaci
Jason Derulo has definitely got Michael Jackson on the brain!
The "Want to Want Me" singer has unveiled the Syndrome-directed video for his new '80s-inspired single, "Cheyenne," which pays tribute to none other than the King of Pop with a zombie-fied dance sequence that just screams "Thriller. " Watch below.
"I wanted to take it back to when music videos had a huge concept and a huge dance break," Derulo said on Good Morning America earlier this month. "The video is kind of like [the movie] The Haunting. Cheyenne is haunting my mind and she haunts me within the video."
MJ isn't the only Jackson that Derulo is honoring these days. On Sunday, the So You Think You Can Dance judge appeared on the BET Awards for a special Janet Jackson tribute performance with Ciara and Tinashe.
