Re: New MJ content?

This new music can be no.1 songs on charts and they can be played on radios.

The duets with current artists are key to a successful marketing campaign, especially if its a someone that's successful in the charts with each release.

Re: New MJ content?

A collab with Weeknd would do way better than a Bieber one. JB not as hot commercially anymore.

Yeah, Blinding Lights was a HUGE song last year. And 'After Hours' was certainly a success. The Weeknd is certainly at his peak right now (as was JT in 2014), it would only make sense.

Bieber’s longevity is insane. His song “Holy” and “Lonely” have been hovering in the Top 20 for months. The Weeknd is a choice, but Bieber is most certainly the wiser one. Plus, the Bieber fan base is far more prominent, which practically guarantees people would buy it.

Paul Anka was working with Drake on a project. I guess the MJ song was just an opportunity for Paul to make some extra cash.

Look at the numbers for both of those songs, especially Holy. People aren’t rushing out to stream and buy it, it’s propped up almost entirely by radio play. The same with Go Crazy (Chris Brown).

It’s undeniable that the Weeknd is a hotter prospect in 2020/2021 than Bieber.

Not necessarily. The Weeknd is definitely at his peak right now, Bieber isn't (he was in 2015/16). However, Bieber still has singles that have more longevity overall and higher peaks on the Hot 100 chart.

In 2020 The Weeknd had 6 singles on the Hot 100 chart. Blinding Lights, which was absolutely massive...and 5 others which weren't hits in the U.S.

-In Your Eyes peaked at number 16 on the chart.
-Smile peaked at number 8 (but didn't have longevity).
-Save Your Tears peaked at number 21 (but is growing right now after the release of the music video.)
-Over Now peaked at number 38.
-Hawái peaked at number 12 (didn't have longevity).

Bieber also released 6 singles in 2020.

-Yummy debuted at number 2 on the Hot 100 chart (it didn't have longevity).
-Intentions peaked at number 5 and stayed in the top 10 for 18 weeks.
-Stuck With U debuted at number 1 (no longevity).
-Holy debuted at number 3 back in September (is still in the top 10).
-Lonely peaked at number 12 (stayed in the top 20 since its release).
-Monster debuted at number 8.

Bieber is more of a mainstream pop artist. The Weeknd is doing more dark RnB music which isn't necessarily as commercial as Bieber's music. But I think a duet with either one of them and MJ would be a smash hit, if promoted well.

J.B is as popular as ever. A duet or 2 would be fine. I just hope it’s not a entire album of fake duets. Especially with artists MJ didn’t even know. We will see eventually they will release something. Don’t have much confidence in quality to be honest.

Re: New MJ content?

The material is certainly there to create a quality product, something that Michael truly deserves. The only track I wouldn't oppose to being in the main track listing, and also featuring other artists would be Hot Fun as it's claimed to be vocally incomplete solely by Michael. Listening to the original I wouldn't class it as a strong track but if it does feature Mary J. & The Weeknd like the Twitter user is claiming, then surely their is reason to believe that it may be a success.

Re: New MJ content?

I remember reading somewhere that LA Reid wanted it to be on Xscape. John Branca has also hyped the track. I think it's one of the stronger tracks left in the vault.

In my opinion anyone who supports MJ because there's alot artists who still love MJ but never got a chance to meet him or young artists and fans.

I'm just going off of what the original track sounds like, sure with the right mixing it could be a smash. Mary J. can easily reach those notes you hear in the original and Michael's voice will make it beautiful of course.

Mary is certainly more affectionate towards Michael than some of the artists in the industry.

The one for Xscape was Mary and D’Angelo.

The Weeknd is the rumoured feature for Throwing Your Life Away.

Yeah if produced right similarly to LNFSG with the Off The Wall type vibe it could be a hit.

The instrumental of the duet is easily the greatest one out of all three from the album. Such a feel good track.
