2000 Watts

Let me give you a brief history on the song.

 Tyrese Gibson had a bare demo tape in his archives. Well as the story goes, Michael invited him to jam on The Invincible Project. While there, Mr. Jackson stumbled across a rough sketch of "2000 Watts".

 Tyrese explained it was an outtake to his up-coming album. Yet Michael through his sense of smelling a hidden gem(that's why they call him Smelly), begged to let him do something with it!

 Tyrese was more then happy to let Michael Jackson finish what he started. So Riley and Jackson reworked the track until the sound was to their liking. On hearing it would make the final cut, Tyrese quickly changed his mind and named his 2001 album "2000 Watts".

 "2000 Watts" was originally inspired by a charity foundation by that same name. Founded in 1997. "2000 Watts" was almost replaced by Shout. Another somewhat irregular vocal track featuring Teddy Riley.

Many thought Invincible wasn't fresh. I agree on a few things(terrible track arrangement). But listening to the likes of "Whatever Happens", "Privacy", and "Cry", I'd have to disagree more. And "2000 Watts" does have somethin' goin'.

 This electrifying hybrid of Techno and Hip-Hop is an innovative feat to Mr. Jackson's credit! A lot of times, I'd rather Michael not overdub his voice. But on this occasion, the voice blends right into the production. Another example is intro verses to "Blood On The Dance Floor".

 There was a rumor going around his unreleased single showed Jackson posing in a room full of electricity. Like something you'd see in a science museum.
