Chance the Rapper definitely got everyone’s attention when he tweeted what he called his list of songs he will “play for the aliens” to help them understand “humanity.”

“As you asked, I compiled the list of songs I will play for the aliens to get them to understand music and humanity,” the 27-year-old rapper, born Chancelor Johnathan Bennett, tweeted to his millions of followers, along with the 22-song list. The comments were noted by Billboard magazine in a piece published Thursday.  (RELATED: Chance The Rapper Has Spent A Grand Total Of $30,000 On Postmates Delivery Since 2015)

Other tracks by the late King of Pop that made Chance the Rapper’s cut include 1995’s “You Are Not Alone” (from greatest hits HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book 1), Dangerous-era single “Heal the World” and 1975’s “Dear Michael.”
