Michael Jackson's sixth solo album Thriller is all set to turn 40 this November. The album consists of various chart-busting tracks which have been crooned by many for almost the past four decades. At the Billboard Music Awards 2022, Maxwell celebrated the 40 years anniversary of the late legend's album in advance with a memorable performance.

The singer wore a sparkly black suit jacket with matching gloves and shoes during his performance. He also donned a pair of aviator sunglasses and flaunted his curly hair at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, Las Vegas. The singer sang the track, which is originally penned by Rod Temperton, and was backed by a full band. At the end of his tribute, Maxwell also sent love to the late legendary singer and said, "We love you, Michael Jackson."
