I would want a majority of the album written BY Michael.. Yet I would always want to keep the window open if any other writters have something good to participate..
I think he would be perfect to work with Mike...
"Rick, 44, is a man of few words who exudes confidence without arrogance. He has a natural intuition when it comes to music. What would seem like an opinion coming from someone else is simply fact when Rick says it. Rick doesn't tell you how you should play it; he tells you when you have nailed it. When people know they can try things, they begin to relax and really listen to a song. They stop focusing on what's written on the page and start listening to the music and where they fit into it. It may take longer, but I think it's the key to why Rick's albums all sound so individual and honest. He has the ability and the patience to let music be discovered, not manufactured. Come to think of it, maybe he is a guru."
Obviously, Michael Jackson would be the #1 preference. I don't Michael knows how good he really is on his own.
Dr. Dre has turned down both Michael & Madonna in the past. He said he didn't want to work with people who have a bunch of demands.The one and only.....DR DRE
Enough said....and he's proved himself in the past to be a SILENT producer unlike the others currently in the the domain!! That should be massivly important to Michael and HIS music....
I dont really wanna see Michael ft. Timberland or Pharrell etc etc....gettin bored and its too much over exposure.
An album by Michael = An album by Michael...whatever musical path or the "producer" decides to choose....just ensure the producer stays silent!!!
Let the music will speak for itself......

Yup, Dre turned MJ down. That was a while ago, though.
To quote Dr. Dre
"Somebody approached me about working with Michael Jackson, and I did say no because I like working with new artists or people that I've worked with in the past." "I can develop them from the ground up. There's no set standard that I have to live up to or anything like that. All I have to do is go in the studio, and basically they're going to bust their ass to come in there and do their thing the way it's supposed to be done."
Looks like he's just scared he wouldn't be able to live up to the expectations.
BTW guys, Michael is trying to make a forceful comeback.
I'm not saying for him to grab a whole party of Modern Producers,
but he needs some to update his music. One thing he has to avoid,
is an outdated sound. He needs some Modern Producers to help direct
him into modern BUT legendary music. It's possible guys.
Mike producing the entire album by himself, is a huge no-no this time.
Maybe produce a few songs by himself, but a whole album is a bit drastic.
I don't know if having a bunch of hardcore fans voting is a good idea. They're less likely to be objective, and just like anything with his voice on it like Hold My Hand, which I think is a generic, bland song. Maybe part hardcore fans, some minor fans, and some general public.If Michael selected like 20 people (staff) from each large MJ forum and have them listen to a bunch of songs and help choose the top 20..
