If he were alive today, the King of Pop would have turned 56 and in a sense he’s still well and alive in our hearts and minds. With a very successful posthumous album, Xscape, it is apparent that Jackson’s legacy of absolute epic-ness will forever remain.
To commemorate the life of the number one man in music, we’ve compiled a dope list of artists we would have loved to see collaborate with MJ. Continue clicking to see what artists made the cut.

H-town’s sassy diva Yonce would have made some sweet tunes with the musical genius, indeed.
It would definitely be a dream of Mr. Brown’s to collaborate with his idol. Let’s not forget his impeccable MJ tribute he poured his heart and soul into on the 2010 BET Awards.
After Lamar’s collaboration with Imagine Dragons on the 2014 Grammy Awards, anything is possible with this dude. His range is impeccable, one that would mesh well with MJ’s.

Yeezus meets the King of Pop… no words needed.
No doubt, the hipsters airy vocals would sound sweet with Michael’s.
The Toronto native is the total package—rapper and crooner all in one. We could only imagine the magic that the two would cook up.
With Skateboard P on the beat and/or in the booth dropping swag-filled vocals, a collaboration with Mike would be the talk of the town. Seriously, just imagine MJ on a hit like “Happy.”
There’s no denying it, collaboration queen Onika would be the perfect candidate to have a collaboration with Mike. We can already imagine it—Nicki would have sounded amazing on “Bad.”
A collaboration that we’re surprised never came into fruition is one that we continue to keep our fingers crossed for.
The uber sensitive singer/songwriter could have penned some beautiful songs of love and heartbreak for Michael, we’re sure of that.
