Wanna Be Sampling Something 

It's been five years since we lost the King of Pop, but his legacy lives on. Throughout his career and since his passing, many music stars have sampled Michael Jackson, from his collaborators like Heavy D to the new generation of talent like Chris Brown, who used elements of the classic "Human Nature" for his 2011 hit "She Ain't You" off his fourth album F.A.M.E.

As we continue to celebrate the life of the greatest entertainer of all time, check out more songs that borrowed from Michael's extensive catalog.  Michael Harris (@IceBlueVA)
