When it was first revealed that Epic records would be releasing a new posthumous album from Michael Jackson, many fans were very skeptical of the project and the reasons behind it. After the label and the Estate of Michael Jackson held a private listening session for a handful of devoted MJ fan sites and the reviews were all positive and exciting, the album titled, Xscape, quickly became much-anticipated.
Now, with less than two weeks before the project lands in stores, the official first single has been released! Titled “Love Never Felt So Good,” the “contemporized” tune, as L.A. Reid defines the process, definitely lives up to a similar meaning as the title, because this record feels so damn good!
Opening with an intro from Michael’s friend and past collaborator, Justin Timberlake, the music icon sounds incredible on the funky groove. Get ready to dance, because this one would make MJ proud.
