The first official single from that upcoming album of previously unreleased material from the late Superstar, Michael Jackson, was released today. “Hold My Hand” apparently was initially recorded in 2007, but not finished during MJ’s life.
It’s a duet with popular Rapper, Akon, who recently went back into the studio to complete, “Hold My Hand.” Akon has sung with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and many others. I love his duet, “The Sweet Escape,” with Gwen Stefani.
You can catch a listen of “Hold My Hand” on the new Michael Jackson site. Unlike the previous cut, “Breaking News,” — the Michael Jackson vocals on this duet really sound like the voice of the King of Pop.
The new album, “Michael,” is due out next month, December 14, and reportedly includes duets with 50 Cent and Lenny Kravitz as well.
