According to a guy in Huffington Post, Michael Jackson was involved in the soundtrack for Sega’s Sonic The Hedgehog 3 (the one with Knuckles).
You should check out the whole story that starts with the rumours that the two were connected leading right up to it becoming a confirmed fact.
For around four weeks in 1993, Jackson and his team worked out of Record One studio in California, creating “something like 41” tracks – or cues, as they’re called in the video game world, Buxer said. Jones remembers Jackson calling him, sometimes late at night, to share ideas and sing melodies that would eventually make it into the game.
The reason Jackson took his name out of the game? No one really knows, but it could be the controversy surrounding child abuse allegations that led to it, or perhaps Jackson’s unhappiness at the sound quality when rendered in the final game.
