However, quite the opposite of his fierce persona, Blake recently shared a video on Twitter where he can be seen grooving to Michael Jackson’s popular song, Thriller.

Introducing Yohan Jackson

Thriller by Michael Jackson is one of the most popular pop songs ever. Released as part of the album “Thriller” in 1983, the song has certainly not lost its charm yet. Blake proved the same as he posted a video of himself, grooving to the beats of the song.

“Track by day, Yohan Jackson by night…,” Tweeted Blake.

 

In the video, one can see Blake following the king of pop, step by step. Clearly, a professional dancer as an alternative career option might’ve been on Blake’s list.

Fans also loved the video and didn’t stop themselves from appreciating his moves. While one named him ‘Yohanson,’ another fan asked him to perform at a concert.

Yohan Blake interested in T2O
