The piano-accompanied soundscape (performed by Mario Winans) starts off with Diddy testifying about Jackson’s influence, he says:

I believed I could do anything,

he continues,

You made the world dance,
You made the music come to life.

Then a thunderous bass drops in, led by Chris Brown’s vocals on the chorus:

This the type of song that make the angels cry,
I look up in the sky and i wonder why?
Why you had to go, go
I know its better on the other side,
You were chosen from the start
Never gon’ let you go,
It’s from the heart, whoo.

At the end, Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men sings the last chorus:

This the kind of song that make the angels cry,
look up in the sky and ask God, why o why why
Do we live and let die
This the kind of song that make the angels cry,
look up in the sky and ask God, why o why why
Do we live and let, live and let die.

A video was shot on the June 27th. They also took a footage of The Game and Chris Brown working together in the studio during making the tribute.
