Thumbs down for We Are The World remake

JAY-Z (left)  isn’t happy with the remake of We Are The World, which has been recorded to raise relief funds for Haiti.

He thinks that the song shouldn’t have been touched.
“I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: We Are the World, I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great,” the New York Daily News quoted him as telling
“But I think We Are the World  is like (Michael Jackson’s) Thriller. I don’t ever wanna see it touched,” he added.
The new version of the 25-year-old song — which features stars from Barbra Streisand to Miley Cyrus to Lil’ Wayne — is called We Are the World: 25 for Haiti. The 1985 original was produced by Quincy Jones, who was also involved in the remake, and written by Jackson and Lionel Richie, who performed along with a veritable who’s who of recording greats, from Tina Turner to Bob Dylan. —
