Tyga Pays Tribute To Michael Jackson, Rocks Out To "Beat It"

Tyga has been keeping himself busy to start the new year, both on a pressional and a personal level. The music video for his track “Temperature,” which puts him at the center a love story in Thailand, dropped recently, amping up the buzz surrounding his music. He also shared pictures him and his co-star from that video walking on the beach together, sparking speculation that they were secretly an item. Now, Tyga’s throwing it back some and showing the King Pop some love in a new video.

Uploading the footage to his personal Instagram account, the rapper paid tribute to Michael Jackson, lip synching his heart out to the classic track “Beat It,” which comes f Jackson’s 1982 record Thriller. Tyga captioned the video with the following message: “Morning vibes..Rest In Paradise Mike.” You can check out the entire video below.

Will T-Raww continue to be inspired by Jackson with more pop-infused music in 2018. “Temperature” certainly points in that direction, using parts the instrumental from Jazn’s track “Bombay” to give the proceedings a much-needed bit Latin energy, a quality that many artists are latching onto as the key to pop and crossover success at the moment. After releasing BITS2 and Bugatti Raww last year, LPs which most fans thought represented a return to form for the rapper, it will be interesting to see which direction Tyga chooses to go in now.
