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

Introducing Yohan Jackson

Michael Jackson’s thriller is one of the most popular pop songs of all time. Released as part of the “Thriller” album in 1983, the song certainly hasn’t lost its charm yet. Blake proved the same by posting a video of himself, grooving to the beat of the song.

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

In the video, Blake can be seen following the King of Pop step by step. Obviously, a professional dancer as an alternative career option could have been on Blake’s list.

Fans loved the video as well and couldn’t help but appreciate his moves. While one called him “Yohanson”, another fan asked him to perform at a concert.
