MICHAEL JACKSON'S BAD 25 ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION ALREADY HAS ITS FIRST #1 SINGLE
"I Just Can't Stop Loving You" / "Don't Be Messin' 'Round (demo)" CD Single Debuts at #1 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales Chart
New York, NY - On June 5, the original first single from Michael Jackson's landmark album BAD, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," was re-released as a CD Single with a never-before released bonus track called "Don't Be Messin' 'Round (demo)." In its first week this Wal-Mart exclusive CD single was scooped up by fans, giving Michael a #1 debut on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart in a top five that includes Carly Rae Jepsen, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber and Coldplay/Rihanna.
"I Just Can't Stop Loving You" was written and composed by Michael Jackson and performed as a duet with Siedah Garrett. The song became the first of five consecutive number-one Billboard Hot 100 hits from Jackson's BAD album. It also reached number one on the Billboard R&B and adult contemporary charts. "Don't Be Messin' Around" is a previously unreleased demo from the singer's vaults which was recorded during the BAD sessions.
On September 18th, the Estate of Michael Jackson along with Epic/Legacy Recordings will release BAD 25, which includes three CDs, two collectible booklets, and features the first-ever authorized DVD release of a concert from the record breaking BAD tour, the concert at Wembley Stadium on July 16, 1988 attended by Princess Diana, Prince Charles and a sold-out crowd of 72,000 fans.
More details on this and other exciting projects relating to BAD's 25th anniversary will be announced soon. Get updated first by signing up for the official MJ Newsletter.
I posted this on the billboard thread not sure where it should go, so I have added it here too, I hope this is not a problem.
I have just joined the MJ community to enjoy the Bad 25 celebrations and wanted to point out a potential problem with the IJCSLY single.
The Right channel appears to be wobbly and distorted. If you compare it to any other copy, this has got a wobble like you get when you listen to an old cassette or an old walkman with the headphones not fully plugged in. Perhaps this occurred when dubbed to this particular single but concerning nonetheless
Could someone please contact the estate to check the version on the new album will not have the same problem.
Apologies for being a bearer of bad news on my first post but I wanted to try and correct this before the main event in the Autumn.

Michael Jackson: Epic Botching of Great Unreleased Single from “Bad” Album
Today is the third anniversary of the death of Michael Jackson. (Also the the third anniversary of Farrah Fawcett’s passing, FYI.) Epic Records cannot get Michael’s posthumous recordings out properly. Way back I told you that Michael’s longtime engineer Bruce Swedien had one extra track from “Bad”–the same one the late Frank DiLeo remembered as being outstanding. It was called “Don’t Be Messin’ Around.” I wrote about it here: http://www.showbiz411.com/2009/07/02...o-bruce-swedie.
So it turns out that three weeks ago, on June 5th, Epic released “Don’t Be Messin’ Around” as the B side of the reissued “I Can’t Stop Loving You,” the original single from the “Bad” album.I spoke to Bruce a few minutes ago. He says the track is NOT a demo, it’s the finished track. “Michael didn’t make demos. He played piano on that track. That’s the record.” Sony did not consult Swedien about the track. They did send Spike Lee down to interview him for a video they’re doing on the “Bad’ 25th anniversary release set for…September. But for now, no publicity.
What??? After all the fighting about the Cascio tracks from the “Michael” album, here was the one track everyone agreed was really Michael, was really from classic sessions, and could have been trumpeted into a big deal. Not only has there been ZERO publicity, but also you can only buy the single at Wal-Mart, and only physically. Not digitally. In 2012. I can’t imagine why Sony/Epic/Legacy and the Michael Jackson estate was unable to do this right. It’s like everything else with Michael Jackson’s post-death recordings. And to think Sony said it made a deal for $200 million. They’re not going to earn it back this way!
Huh? Is he really telling us that the DBMR version we got isn't a demo? I don't get it, cause it doesn't seem make sense.
Finally got my CD in the mail today....of all days
But, DBMA doesn't sound finished. What are they talking about?
I got my single today and I'm sooooo happyyyy!!!
