MICHAEL JACKSON WAS IN STUDIO WITH DONNA SUMMER Before Stealing Her Beat!!!

Michael Jackson had intimate knowledge of the Donna Summer track he “stole” for “Billie Jean” … because he sang backup on her song!!!

If ya missed it, Quincy Jones was first to blow the whistle on MJ … saying he outright stole that famous “Billie Jean” bass line from Donna’s song, “State of Independence.”

We took Q at his word when we read the Vulture interview … and listened to both songs. Once we slowed down ‘Independence’ it was blatantly obvious Quincy was right. Now, for the plot twist!

MJ was part of the all-star lineup that sang backup for Donna’s song. Shout out to the loyal TMZ user (@Rascoundrel on Twitter) who pointed out this video … showing Michael, Stevie WonderDionne WarwickLionel Richie and Kenny Loggins in studio. And yeah, Quincy was there producing the whole thing.

Now, Donna and Michael were friends … so, it’s possible she was aware he was lifting the beat. We just don’t know.

Of course, Michael still wrote original lyrics and added his signature “hee-hee” all over “Billie Jean” — but c’mon … case closed on the beat.
