EXO’s Chinese singer Lay and NCT 127 will team up with world-famous singer-songwriter Jason Derulo for a single to be released as an homage to Michael Jackson.

According to the two acts’ agency S.M. Entertainment, the upcoming crossover project is part of international celebrations of the legendary pop star’s 60th birthday, which will see the release of four singles over 10 months.

The two K-pop acts will sing alongside Derulo in “Let’s Shut Up and Dance,” the first track of the four-song set that will be crafted by the “Wiggle” singer. They will also be featured in the song’s accompanying music video that will be directed by award-winning director Dave Meyers.

The crossover project will be spearheaded by 769 Entertainment, which was established by former MJJ Music President Jerry Greenberg. MJJ was founded by Jackson in 1993.

“Jackson was all about diversity and inclusion, bringing us all together through his artistry,” Greenberg said in a statement. “Our hope is that through this special project, we can all come together in
these challenging times and celebrate him, and to continue to keep his legacy alive for generations to come.”

The official release date of “Let’s Shut Up and Dance” has yet to be revealed. The other three songs from the four-set EP will also feature renowned global artists.
