A newly leaked song by Michael Jackson called “Slave 2 The Rhythm,” featuring Justin Bieber is definitely the real thing, according to Billboard.

After the song hit the web, Jackson’s label Sony entered a copyright claim, which not only led many of the YouTube and Soundcloud links to be taken down, but confirmed that the song is in fact real. (Update: The song has been removed from all corners of the web.)

The song was reportedly written years before Jackson’s death in 2009. A version produced by Tricky Stewart surfaced last year, but did not feature Bieber’s vocals.

This new version of the track has Bieber and Jackson trading verses about a girl who dances to a beat all her own, all with a little but of dubstep wub thrown in for good measure.

Over the weekend, Bieber seemed to tease the song, tweeting that he was “excited for what is to come” and wished Michael was here.

Bieber sent other messages about Jackson calling him “the greatest of all time.” He also tweeted another that showed similar black and white photos of Jackson and Bieber on stage performing with the message “He set the bar.”

Earlier this month it was announced that after 30 years the never before released duets between Jackson and Queen frontman Freddie Mercury will be released in the fall.
