Watch The Trailer For Spike Lee’s Michael Jackson Documentary

Featuring the Weeknd, Questlove, and David Byrne.

The trailer for Michael Jackson's Journey From Motown To Off The Wall is a quick blitz through performance footage and interviews with famous musicians. "I always use Michael first and foremost as a vocal inspiration," The Weeknd explains. "And Off The Wall was definitely the one that made me feel like I could sing. I found my falsetto because of Off The Wall." (In a New York Times story from earlier this year, the singer was listening to the title track from Jackson's 1979 album in his dressing room.)

"I didn't even know he was saying keep warm with the force don't stop," Questlove adds, remembering his early encounters with "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough." "I thought it was about forks. When I was a kid I was like, 'keep on with the forks.' I didn't know what the forks were."

Watch above, and catch the film on Showtime February 5.
