Between Black Pink's Jennie's birthday and GOT7's 4th anniversary, January 16 is quite a big day in the world of K-pop. However, January 16 also marks the anniversary of a very special moment in pop music history: the release of Michael Jackson's iconic single, "Man in the Mirror."

The King of Pop's massively popular track was released on this day 30 years ago, where it proceeded to light up the music charts and score countless accolades, including a "Record of the Year" nomination at the Grammy Awards.

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of "Man in the Mirror's" release, K-pop legend BoA has decided to put together a special cover version of Michael Jackson hit single by collaborating with one of the song's co-writers, acclaimed songstress Siedah Garrett.

Both BoA and Siedah Garrett will be sharing vocal duties on the cover and the musical arrangements will be performed by Myron McKinley from the renowned R&B jazz group Earth, Wind & Fire. As for when fans can expect the song to drop, it will be released tonight at 6PM (KST).

While we wait for BoA and Siedah Garrett's special "Man in the Mirror" to drop tonight, check out the teaser clip right here and let us know what you think.
