How the Legacies of Fallen Musical Greats Carry On
Fans of Janelle Monae – the brilliant featured artist on Fun’s 2012 ‘We Are Young’ single, in case you’re wondering – have recently commented that her new single ‘Make Me Feel’ had such a Princesque feel to it that it could have been written by the Purple One himself.
As it turns out, Monae recently revealed that she had been collaborating with him on her upcoming album before he sadly passed away in 2016 and so this goes a long way to explain why we feel like bopping along like it’s 1999 again after spinning the track. Monae’s new album Dirty Computer is due for release on April 28th and songs like ‘Make Me Feel’ serve as reminder that Prince had so much more to give before he tragically lost his life.
For a man who was infamously diminutive and about as far away from physically imposing as you can ever get, the impact that Prince Rogers Nelson has left on the music industry is the complete polar opposite to his 5″2 frame . With the word legend losing credibility fast thanks to today’s younger generation banding the term around willy nilly, Prince will still rightly go down in history as a true legend and one of the most important musical pioneers of his generation. The singer has also been in the news lately for other recent goings on, including the Minnesota Twins baseball team being given the green light to sell Prince related merchandise at their games. With a near perfect discography and credit list which is almost as long as my arm, Michael Jackson is also an artist who will be spoke about for generations to come.
The King of Pop has made numerous appearances in various arenas, including the video gaming industry, where he even has an online slot game solely based on his musical exploits. Whether you simply enjoy singing along to Jackson’s greatest hits or fancy getting a hold of one of many progressive jackpots, there are numerous free spin no deposits bonuses relating to the game and you can click here for full article which explains how to maximize those extra spins.
In addition to this, numerous tributes and feature documentaries as well as the 2018 show Thriller Live! are still going strong, meaning it’s pretty clear that Michael Jackson will never be forgotten or even truly die – after all, they do say you only really pass away when someone says your name for the last time.

The old Babe Ruth quote goes that “Heroes get remembered but legends never die.” Artists such as Michael Jackson and Prince are arguably legends because of their heroism – their music undoubtedly helped shape many lives and it’s not uncommon to this day to hear about how some of Michael Jackson’s more emotional songs have brought people back from the brink and turned their lives around. Whether you’re of the opinion that the current crop of RnB and Pop artists are as good as their counterparts or not is a matter of opinion but it’s certainly difficult to identify modern-day acts who will have the same impact and longevity that these artists have had. Unfortunately, they really don’t seem to make ’em like they used to.
