“小K，一名才华横溢的年轻人经历了几年创作以及歌手生涯，终于于2008年开年之际推出了自己首张专辑唱片，这里面汇集了小K近年来的一部分优秀作品，作品涉及到亲情、爱情、和平等多个题材，是一张非常好听的多元化曲风的唱片。 专辑名称定为[周.杰伦]，由此可见周杰伦对小K的影响，长相酷似周杰伦的小K在音乐上也受到周杰伦很大影响，我们在这张唱片中不难发现这点。小K独立完成该张唱片的制作，从词曲创作到编曲，小K充分表现了其不凡的音乐才华。 小K出生成长在山东，参加多次选秀并取得非常好的成绩，在网络上以及电视机前小K已经有数量不少歌迷，这次小K终于实现了他的一个愿望，出版发行了自己的唱片，回馈给自己的歌迷朋友们.”
I don’t understand. Not to mention this 小K doesn’t sound like, or actually sounds much worse than Jay Chow (周杰伦), even if he matches up, why would he want to copy somebody? I can understand if he’s inspired by Jay, but wanting to look like and sound like someone? That’s just complete copycat, and I despise such people!
This reminded me of someone named Jason Malachi, who created some hype with his song Mamacita, which got “deliberately leaked” all over the Internet as Michael Jackson’s new single. True, he sounded exactly like MJ on that song, well, like a younger version of MJ. But I was completely thrilled at that time, thinking MJ’s releasing new music. What had me fooled was not only his voice, but also his way of breathing, his pronounciation, his singing emotion, the song’s style and beats…. I was so sure that it was an MJ song.
I thought being a fan for quite some time now, I have sharp ears. All these years there have been tons of people mimicing MJ’s voice and way of singing and I’ve always been able to tell the difference. So when I found out Mamacita was sung by Jason Malachi (it really didn’t matter who; the point is it ain’t MJ), my heart broke! Yes, I have to admit the boy’s got talent, and I would give him kudos if he’s impersonating MJ (e.g. singing an MJ song) and be so alike him. But why would he want to put out his own music and sing just like MJ? Why do we need another MJ? MJ is the one and only!
I guess I’m so angry because he’s had me fooled. I was so confident in my ability as a fan and now that confidence is shattered into pieces. From now on, every time I hear a so called “rare”, “unreleased”, “demo” song from MJ, I would not be sure if it really is MJ. See, I don’t want to love the wrong guy, OK?! (sigh*)
If you Google Jason Malachi, you’ll see that he has a mySpace page (http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=89541740). He has several more songs there playing. The other ones don’t sound as much MJ as Mamacita. Anyway, the mySpace thing came as no surprise, because how would such a NON-original guy make it big? I wish him the worst luck!~ Hmph!
