New Michael Jackson gets airing


//

A new Michael Jackson song has been released, the first since the ‘King of Pop’s’ death.

The single ‘This is it’ features backing vocals by two of the star’s brothers, but it is not known when the track was written and recorded.

In London, devoted fans waited overnight to get their hands on the new CD.

“This is the first ever premier of the new song they are going to show it for the first time. I thought I want to be a part of history and I’m really excited to be one of the first people to hear it,” one fan said.

Jackson’s album, also called ‘This is it’, goes on release later this month.

One thought on “New Michael Jackson gets airing

  1. In late 1996, Jackson remarried, to nurse Debbie Rowe; over the next two years, the couple had two children, son Prince Michael Jackson
    , Jr. and daughter Paris Michael
    Katherine Jackson. However, Jackson and Rowe divorced in late 1999. In 2001, Jackson was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and later held a massive concert at Madison Square Garden celebrating the 30th anniversary of his first solo record. Among many other celebrity guests, the show featured the first on-stage reunion of the Jackson since the Victory tour. In the wake of September 11, Jackson put together an all-star charity benefit single, “What More Can I Give.” His new album, Invincible, was released late in the year, marking the first time he’d issued a collection of entirely new material since Dangerous; it found him working heavily with urban soul production wizard Rodney Jerkins. Invincible debuted at number one and quickly went double platinum; however, its initial singles, “You Rock My World” and “Butterflies,” had rather disappointing showings on the charts, with the latter not even reaching the Top Ten. To compound matters, the expensive “What More Can I Give” single and video were canceled by Sony when executive producer Marc Schaffel was revealed to work in pornography. Jackson’s
    camp tried to distance the singer from Schaffel, and the various corporations that were attached to it (McDonalds, Sony) claimed they had minimal involvement if any with the song. Sony and Jackson began a press war in the summer of 2002, starting with Jackson’s
    claims that the label asked for 200 million dollars to pay them back for marketing costs. Although they had spent 55 million on his disappointing comeback, Sony released a statement saying that no such request had ever been made. Jackson stewed for a few weeks before launching a press attack on Sony Music chairman Tommy Mottola, calling him “devilish” and making claims that he used racist language and held down black artists. Many Sony artists, including Mariah Carey and Ricky Martin, defended Mottola, but Jackson and his family maintained that racism ended their professional relationship.
