Every summer, Johnson goes off on a wholesome vacation with his family and friends. This year’s trip has been even more special, with the Honorary Academy Award winner Jackson tagging along. Just days after posting a group photo with Michael Jordan and Co., Magic met the legendary record executive Clive Davis.

The $850-million-worth Davis, who is a remarkable force in the music industry, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2000. He is the face behind some of the biggest Billboard hits and has successfully launched the careers of many artists, such as Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Aerosmith, Pink Floyd, and more.
