Michael Jackson. The King of Pop. The man who invented the moonwalk.
Can you even stand it?! I’m so excited right now that I could do this…
This isn’t the first album to be released since that somber day of June 25th that Michael left us nearly 5 years ago this summer! 😦 Oh no! This will be the second project of unreleased tracks released from the King of Pop!!!
The first Michael Jackson project of unreleased tracks called: Michael was officially released by his estate on December 14, 2010, only a mere year & 1/2 after his tragic death.
I have that album in the best version of all-time: iTunes LP and it is amazing!!! My special edition LP is a digital player that includes a full-screen view where I can view lyrics, song credits, and special pictures 😀
The album has great collaborations with Akon, 50 Cent, & even Lenny Kravitz!
Akon, 50 Cent (pronounced ‘fiddy’), & Lenny Kravitz
Here is my favorite song from that collection:
I love the beginning where Michael is describing how he wants the song to sound! 😀 It’s such an intimate look into the mind of my favorite musical genius!!!
As far as Michael’s soon to be released album “Xscape” goes…it will be an 8-song collection of previously unreleased tracks.
L.A. Reid, the executive producer of the project, took the lead in scowering for Michael Jackson recordings in which his vocals were completed. From there, he went on to “contemporizing” each by bringing in incredible producer (my personal favorite) Timbaland.
Timbo also enlisted the help of his talented friends & producers Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon.
L.A. Reid released this official statement: “Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.”
Well I’m extremely excited to hear it!!!
By this rare photo of Rodney Jerkins & MJ, we know that he was lucky enough to work with Michael Jackson himself!!!
The title track “Xscape” was written, produced, and originally recorded in the studio by Michael and Rodney! 😀
Epic Records is set to release a deluxe edition of the album Xscape which includes all the recordings in their original form! You’ve got purchaser #1 right here guys! HAHA 🙂
Both versions will be available on tomorrow, Tuesday, April 1st, for pre-order on iTunes! And I’ll have you know that a global campaign will ensue shortly for this album!
More information for Michael super fans is said to be released soon included the coveted track listing!!! 😀
Here is the leaked demo of the album’s title track, Xscape:
GOSH! HAHA I absolutely love it! 😀
The song just got taken down 😦 So I hope you heard it!!!
Michael was a tortured soul, yet one of the most beautiful human beings this world has ever seen, and certainly one of the most talented!
I hope that many people will purchase his album Xscape in May! I can’t wait to hear the other tracks and I’m excited for the vision of L.A. Reid and Timbaland come to life!
