- R&B / Soul
“Billie Jean” is a song by American singer Michael Jackson. It introduced a number of Jackson’s signatures, including the moonwalk, black sequined jacket, high-water pants, and was widely imitated. The “Billie Jean” music video, directed by Steve Barron, was the first video by a black artist to be aired in heavy rotation on MTV. Along with the other videos produced for Thriller, it helped establish MTV’s cultural importance and make music videos an integral part of popular music marketing.
