The Jacksons write songs for One Direction


The Jacksons are eyeing a collaboration with One Direction after writing a collection of songs for the boy band.

Michael Jackson's brothers are currently on tour in the U.K., and Jackie Jackson reveals they are keen to team up with Britain's top pop group.

"Those boys remind me of ourselves so much when we were younger," he told U.K. newspaper the Daily Star. "I got some songs for them to record too, so we'll be in touch (with them) real soon."

The Jacksons are currently working on a new album, and singing sister Janet looks set to feature on the release.

"The rest of the family are involved, too," Jackie Jackson said. "There will be some collaborations. Janet will be on the record, too, and our youngest brother, Randy, will return in the future as well."

It seems like a bit of a change for The Jacksons. Considering they want to team up with One Direction.  I am not a fan of One Direction, but I have seen most of their videos and interviews on youtube and they are pretty good. They have a good head on their shoulders and are well grounded. I am sure with them pairing up, they will come up with some good music.
