How do you dethrone the “King of Pop”? Let the current king disappear to Bahrain and get sued for $7 million by an Arab sheik; take your kaleidoscopic and playful songs to California’s Westlake Studios where Michael Jackson recorded Thriller; or simply be a boy named Pop. Pop Levi goes 2 of 3 and emerges with Never Never Love, an album shot through with the ghosts of Prince, MJ, and R. Kelly. S D Green and the musical shape-shifter talk the process of Pop.
