Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

Why there is no promotion for Love Never Felt So Good and Xscape on main page of iTunes? It iritates me a little bit...

So happy for the album, and the single is so good (I prefer Timbland version). LNFSG (with JT) has just reached 6th place on Polish iTunes (and 20th).

What a great DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Should be fine once XSCAPE releases, it's only like that because Coldplay's album just came out if I'm not mistaken.

According to a friend of mine in DC, local radio is playing MJ & JT version of LNFSG in heavy rotation - every 10th song.

I am starting to warm to the new version of 'LNFSG' a lot more! the production is great, the work they did on the song (being sourced from a tape) is wonderful. I love the additional instruments they used, as well as keeping the authentic ''MICHAEL JACKSON SOUND'' Michael sure would be proud. Solo Version is No. 25 on iTunes UK.

Make sure to support MJ's solo version of #LoveNeverFeltSoGood. Both versions count as one. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/love-never-felt-so-good/id872038135?i=872038183 … pic.twitter.com/frG0zT7Ws5

That's great news! Just like how the standard and deluxe version is being counted as one... great!!

Rodney Jerkins about his work with MJ

New York: When Michael Jackson's record label released his first posthumous album in 2010, a year after the King of Pop's sudden death, producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins was asked to work on the project.

He declined.

"I was asked to be on that album and to produce like five songs, but I turned it down," he said. "I just felt like it wasn't time."

Years later, the hitmaker for Destiny's Child and Whitney Houston - who worked heavily on Jackson's 2001 comeback album "Invincible" - says he now feels comfortable producing Jackson's music again. He produced the title track from the upcoming album, "Xscape," out May 13.

"For me it wasn't about the label, it wasn't about the estate's approval; it wasn't about all of that," he said. "I had a personal relationship with Michael, (so) it was about, 'What would he want from this? What would he want it to sound like now?'"

"Xscape" was executive produced by Timbaland and includes songs Jackson recorded in the 1980s and 1990s. Some of the tracks are taken from early recording sessions for successful albums such as "Bad" and "Dangerous."

The first single, "Love Never Felt So Good," was written with Paul Anka. A bonus version of the track features Justin Timberlake.

Jerkins said he and Jackson originally started work on the song "Xscape" in 1999 when they recorded the "Invincible" album. He revisited the track in 2003 and retouched it this year for the new 8-track album.

"Even when Michael was alive, we never stopped working on the song 'Xscape,'" he said. "It was one of those songs where he specifically said to me, 'It has to see the light of day one day.'"

Jerkins said he visited Jackson in 2007 in Ireland where they were "vibing out," but didn't focus on creating music exclusively.

"And I then I spoke to him - I would say 2008, 2009, something like that - and he was telling me, 'I'm getting ready to do another album. You gotta get to work. Start working on ideas,'" he recalled. "And then he passed away."

Jerkins, who has produced hits for Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Brandy, is currently working on new music with Rihanna and Ariana Grande. He said he was initially nervous about including "Xscape" on the Jackson album, which also includes a song produced by StarGate, who Jackson initially wanted to collaborate with in 2007 because of the Swedish team's work with Ne-Yo.

"I was like, 'What's the other stuff going to sound like?' I don't even know if I want my song to be on there if the other stuff ain't right," Jerkins said.

But after the hearing the full record, he relaxed.

"Everyone did a really great job on this project," he said.

Love Never Felt So Good: Michael Jackson's duet with Justin Timberlake goes viral as fans describe duo as 'dream team'

It would seem Michael Jackson is living up to his title of the king of pop posthumously.

The multi-talented star, who died in June 2009, has been featured on a new duet alongside Justin Timberlake called Love Never Felt So Good.

The track is one of eight that will appear on the former Jackson Five singer’s posthumous Xsape album set for release on 9 May in the UK.

The feel-good track starts with a Billie Jean-esque heavy beat kicking through Justin’s spoken word, saying: ‘Come on, let me see you move’.

And then the verse begins with Micheal’s voice belting out the romantic tune with lyrics like, ‘Baby, love never felt so good and I'd die if it ever could not like you hold me, hold me’.

The track debuted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards – aired on American TV channel NBC on Thursday evening - was written by Paul Anika and originally recorded by Jackson in 1983.

Released at midnight, it’s been widely acknowledged as a big hit by the fans with many excited by the prospect of a whole new album dropping at the end of the month.

And fans of the king of pop took to social media in their thousands, telling the world how they felt about the new single.

MJ fan Steven Lawrence tweeted: ‘I never usually like posthumous release but Michael Jackson’s Love Never Felt So Good is rather good!’

And another, Tara Santanastaso, added: ‘Love Never Felt So Good? More like love never SOUND so good!’

And on Thursday night, Usher paid tribute to the late legend at the iHeart Music Awards in Los Angeles, California.

Fans of Michael not only got to hear the star's latest single but also got to see it performed live on stage...

^ Top songs~


Regarding the new album... I'm really interested in hearing Blue Gangsta. Ever since I read the review saying it started with a rainy/moody intro and MJ surprises our ears with an acapella. Looking forward to that track amongst others!

Rain and Chords while MJ screams Look What You Done To Me Baby then the word Baby echos lol

Re: News and discussion about new MJ album : Xscape, May 13, 2014.

I'm really appreciating how they are handling this release.. And I can't forget I mention I love the production of the song so far, they did not over product and change the song into something different.. They really did just contemporize it like try said they were doing
