Hi. I started to look at some of the unreleased songs (the ones that have suspicious snippets) and to investigate them. I decided to start with the songs that I really want to hear and I have to choose "Monster". This one is not the fake Cascio Track on the Michael album. This one is recorded during the "Invincible" and it's still unreleased. I created a "report" about the track and if you know something that has missed, please describe it below.


(Bobi MJ) MJJBreaker's report on "Monster"

31/12/2020 - 09/01/2021



- "Monster" is an unreleased song by Michael Jackson. Since I'm writing this report the track still remains unreleased. However, only 8 seconds snippet of the song is on the internet since 2018.



Leaks: On 16 August, 2018 the Reddit user by the name of "MoguMj" created a post where he wanted to trade a couple of seconds snippet of "Monster".

(The post: https://www.reddit.com/r/MichaelJackson/comments/97prks/monster_1999_snippet/)

(It unknown if he made a deal with someone)

However, later in the same year, only 8 seconds snippet of the song has been leaked on YouTube.

(It's unknown if the snippet is real)

(Link for the snippet if you didn't hear it already: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAzYxM8HbW0&ab_channel=MJJLeaksAndOther)



Title: Monster



Writers: Michael Jackson, Brad Buxer

(According to https://www.reddit.com/r/MichaelJackson/wiki/unreleased-songs the song is written by MJ and Brad Buxer.)

(It's unknown if there are more writers. The information about Brad is unverified)



Recorded/Worked: 1999 - 2001

(On May 12, 2020, the song was sold on auction without Michael's vocals. On the auction is mentioned that the song was recorded in 1999. The auction: http://www.gottahaverockandroll.com/...-LOT23086.aspx)

(Most of the other sources are saying that the song was both recorded and written in 1999.)

(According to Michael Prince, Michael worked on the song until 2001. After the release of the "Invincible" album he never brought that song again for work.)

(Michael only recorded vocals for the choruses.)



Producers: Michael Jackson, Brad Buxer, Michael Prince



Lyrics: [Chorus] "You Created A Monster"

(According to Bassist CJ DeVillar (producer of "Break of Dawn") revealed the song in an interview "Now, I guess Monster is the name, in the version I recorded, he sang "You Created A Monster", there was

an orchestra presented, a lot of percussions... It was very experimental. I thought it was a very personal song by Michael Jackson. It was like one of his songs by SGT Pepper, which was a kind of 'art'

instead of hitting us with 'pop' "He came to a place different with this song, it's harder to hear.")



Side Note: The song was registered in the United States Copyright Office on October 15, 2010

(Along with another track titled "Monster". The other one has the same information as this one except that Michael Prince was not mentioned. And no, the 2nd song is not the Cascio Track. Maybe the song

has been registered twice by mistake.)e song has been registered twice by mistake.)

It may be helpful to the investigation that a supposed snippet of the song has been circulating on YouTube since at least summer 2020: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAzYxM8HbW0

Except for an unknown voice saying "And uh..." at the very beginning (which may or may not be apart of the actual track) no vocals are heard until the very end, and it's nothing intelligible.
