    Just some points about this song...

    1. When it first streamed, the majority of the forum said it was not him.

    2. The first preview of BN (a couple days before it streamed) did not feature any vocals, I wonder why?

    3. Why randomly stream a Cascio song, that wasn't intended to be a single, a month before the release?

    4. The lyrics don't sound like something he would sing in my opinion..I can't imagine him saying "Cause I'm Michael Jackson, Cause I'm Michael Jackson" over and over..

    ^^ Completely agree...that song sounds so overly processed, mixed, produced, cut and pasted...I'm sorry...but I feel it's a complete mess...

    1. Yeah, I remember reading both threads on MaxJax and MJJC. 90% said "wtf is this??".

    2. Man, I can remember those days. I played that snippet over 150 times. And that morning, when I woke up early just to catch the full song, I was shocked and pissed. Not only that the day, but rest of the month.

    3. No idea. This is why I thought publicity stunt, but then I later saw the tracklist.

    4. Agree. Lyrics are crap, just like the other Cascio tracks.

    I didn't care at all about what The Jackson family said about the vocals. I just ignored it - but it looks like they were right.

    It's also written in the third person which I don't think Michael has done before. Not to mention the line "wouldn't leave him alone" and "write my obituary" very odd indeed...

    It's very weak, doens't sound like Michael and is my least favourite track on the album. It's also too predictable as MJ has covered this stuff before with Leave Me Alone, Tabloid Junkie and Privacy.

    When I first heard it, my heart sank. I still can't, however much I want to, hear him in it. And neither can any of my friends (non-MJ fans)

    Well, Jason Malachis own producer says it's Jason without a doubt so that's the final nail in the coffin for me.

    How anyone can think it sounds like MJ I'll never know.

    I agree about the song, it's actually VERY below Mike's standards.....it's VERY poppy....Mike was always able to turn a pop song into something incredible..unique, and different...Not on this song....

    This.

    I mean, if the "believers" say it's 100% Michael and "non-believers" say it's 100% not Michael, surely, our "hearing" must be different?

    Michael isn't the one saying "Jackson", it's a backing vocalist. But yes, the song is average and my least favorite on the album.

    after recovering from the emotional stress after hearing BN some weeks ago LOL (you can read the rundown of what happened in that time here http://marieteris.wordpress.com/2010...the-real-deal/ !!) I am starting to enjoy the song, especially when the song ends!! lol, just kidding, but I'm starting like it, and again, it is a cool beat, yes the vocals, not great, but song, cool.

    This is for Pentum...



    (Tony Kurtis acapella)


    (The original acapella that leaked only days after the song was initially streamed)

    Start from 1:54 in the second video, the pitch in the two videos aren't the same.

    The thing is that when I first heard 'Breaking News' I thought someone was playing a joke. I went on michael*****n.com for the streaming and honestly though it must be a joke. I tried but couldnt hear Michael at all. Although the song has a good beat and is catchy I barely listen to it. This is the song where I can least hear him. However, Im being openminded, I cant hear him they way Im used to but that doest mean it is not him. This is the ONLY song on the track that I am a bit doubtful about.

    I know, Annie. I told you that Tony didn't actually know his a cappella was pitched down (at least, according to him) and asked for the original version.

    BUT, it still sounds the same to me.

    do you think those two songs sounds the same as Annie posted? Is that what you mean? Tell me what you mean, or are the last song only MJ (which my ears though hear very well LOL) I'm trying to understand your point.

    (PS: I haven't been in many BN threads before!)
