Finally confirmed: Michael Jackson composed Sonic 3 music

According to an interview in the French Michael Jackson magazine, Black & White, the world-famous pop star was unquestionably responsible for the composition of some of the music in Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

Composer Brad Buxer made the confirmation, claiming “I’ve never played the game so I do not know what tracks on which Michael and I have worked the developers have kept, but we did compose music for the game.” He also suggests that the reason Michael was not credited was because he was unhappy with the quality of the sound produced by the console. It has been suggested in the past that the mystery was a result of the scandals related to the star at the time.

The interview also confirms the chords for the song “Stranger in Moscow” use music they composed for Sonic 3.
