Michael Jackson & Akon – Hold My Hand

Another Michael Jackson song came out; this time a duet with Akon.

Sounds a bit subpar. I maintain that all this music really shouldn’t be released, but there’s no way that it won’t happen after a big celebrity dies. I think will.i.am, who was working with Michael on what was going to be HIS new album, said it best:

“Whoever put it out and is profiting off of it, I want to see how cold they are, to say that what [Michael] contributed during his life wasn’t enough. He just wasn’t any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me it’s disrespectful. There’s no honoring…. Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they’re finished. Maybe if I never worked with him I wouldn’t have this perspective. He was very particular about how he wanted his vocals, the reverb he used…he was that hands-on.” EW.com
