Marsha Ambrosius praat over Michael Jackson
Niet veel artiesten kunnen zeggen dat ze samen hebben gewerkt met de muziek legende Michael Jackson toen ze nog steeds nieuw waren in het schrijven van liedjes, Marsha Ambrosius heeft echter wel samengewerkt met Michael Jackson, toen ze nog maar net liedjes aan het maken was.
Ambrosius heeft het nummer Butterflies geschreven voor Michael Jackson's album Invincible.
“The original record I produced and wrote myself,” zei Ambrosius tegen Rap-Up.com. “Andre Harris co-produced it with me. I worked with Michael Jackson on the record here in New York in March 2001. Wow, it’s 10 years later and my album is going to be out. I just did the math on that. It’s crazy.”
Als een tribute aan Michael Jackson heeft Ambrosiuseen remix van het nummer Butterflies op haar nieuwe CD gezet, "Late Nights & Early Mornings.
“Getting the opportunity to work with the best who ever did it, on planet Earth, period, is just a blessing. For me, it was just paying my respects. For those who don’t know, I’ve worked with him, but I knew him outside of music. I knew him as a father, as a friend. It was me paying my respects back to him and just thanking him for doing something for me so early in my career I never expected. When I came in the industry at such an early age — for me, 20, 21 — it was way early to take on as a businesswoman and having Michael Jackson be one of the first artists that you work with as a producer and a writer... I just think that’s a blessing.”
“Michael Jackson was a practical joker. He was just funny! And his laugh just made you laugh. When we were in the studio, his engineer kept calling me a singing heifer. And [Michael] would tell the engineer, ‘You know a heifer is a cow, that’s a cow.’ I’ll never forget that. So I’ll always be Michael Jackson’s singing heifer.”
