    It's laughable that you guys think it is Jason Malachi. I've seen where someone thinks Malachi and James is the same person. lol

    Nah ah for me it ain't. That ain't no Michael Jackson on the lead vocals, just listen to that whole verse, listen to him saying his own name, all of that sounds wrong. It doesn't sound like MJ at all. Which exactly are the background vocals in this song?

    I have listened to the song, and Michael's voice sounds muffled because Sony and the ones that mixed it AFTER the songs were given to the mixers messed it up. I am told that it is suppose to sound better on the album. So I encourage fans to wait until the album is actually released before criticizing.

    The "Michael Jackson" part is aided by a background vocalist, as well the chorus.

    most songs are aided by background vocals! ;) You will rarely ever hear one person singing on a song.

    The real version from the hmv snippet is different. The only part that the 'background vocalist' (or Porte) sings is "Jackson". I think the song has been changed to make the other vocalists more subtle in areas so Michael's voice is more clear. I'm hoping this is the case anyway. Curious to hear the full, new version.

    If it really is MJ on that, it's a shame they released that song to begin with. If those vocals weren't good enough, they shouldn't have been used. If they had to mess around with it so much...but this goes for Monster too then.

    I hear him in the chorus, but not in the verses/lead vocals.

    I hear him in the chorus, but not in the verses/lead vocals.
    I think the initial problem they had with BN was making it far, far, far too overproduced. I really believe that is why the initial doubts surfaced. Had they held back with the backing vocalist(s) in the first place, there might have been less criticism. We'll see anyway when we can finally review the full, final version for ourselves.

    ^what if the backup vocals were recorded in 2007? what if it was overproduced to begin with? its a demo afterall, michael could have overproduced/experimented knowing this won't be the final product.

    and I agree, lets wait for the final version

    The snippet i heard on HMV didn't sound much if at all different to me, but ah well. And still left are Monster and KYU which i find very questionable as well.

    It's a Ne-Yo song, and he's clearly heard on the main vocals and chorus, it's been edited to include Michael's signature sayings before he starts singing again ie. all the "Ah's" you hear are all Michael's, then at the end you have someone (I don't even believe it's Ne-Yo anymore), doing his best vocal impersonation, but failing miserably.


    Edit: It's actually Steven Russell throughout the entire song.
