The Weeknd, David Byrne, Questlove Appear in Trailer for Spike Lee's Michael Jackson Doc: Watch
Spike Lee's new Michael Jackson documentary will be out next month, paired with the reissue of Jackson's Off the Wall, and The Weeknd, David Byrne and Questlove of the Roots all appear in the first trailer.
In the Michael Jackson's Journey from Motown to Off the Wall teaser, The Weeknd in particular praises Jackson as a major inspiration.
"I always use Michael as first and foremost a vocal inspiration and Off The Wall was the one that made me feel like I could sing," he said. "I found my falsetto because of Off The Wall, 'Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough.'"
Meanwhile, Byrne and Questlove speak to Jackson's odder side with a timely reference to Star Wars' influence on the song's lyrics.
"I didn't even know that he was saying, 'Keep on with the force, don't stop,' I thought it was about forks," said Questlove, laughing.
