Michael Jackson's Legacy Lives On in a New Music Video

Last week, the legendary star's Twitter account released a music video for the track "A Place with No Name," the first ever to be released on the social media channel.

The song, which was originally recorded in 1998, comes straight off of Jackson's second posthumous album, Xscape. The new video boasts footage of the King of Pop from the same decade, plus up-to-date scenes of a couple dancing on the beach in black and white. Color is infused halfway through, when scenes from his 1991 mini-movie "In the Closet" also surface.

Switching from white to black suits, the dancer dons stylish monokinis, and we found a number of similar styles to consider. Target offers a solid option ($30) with comparable wrap-around detailing, while Mikoh's modern number ($202) is a strapless look-a-like to the ivory suit seen in the video. Find a balance between the two with River Island's two-toned halter ($64).

Get swept away by Jackson's soulful sound—and moves—by watching the video in its entirety:
