And we all thought the “King of Pop” was gone?

Michael Jackson will never be forgotten within the music industry. He is without a doubt the greatest artist that ever walked the earth.
(Madonna is also one of the greatest, of course).

MJ’S new album titled: “Xscape” is the second posthumous compilation album of previously unreleased tracks by American singer Michael Jackson. It was released on May 9, 2014 by Epic Records and MJJ Music. It is also the eleventh album released by Sony and Motown since Jackson’s death in June 2009.

The album features eight pop tracks that will make you wanna dance, the only way Michael Jackson knows hows to.
“Slaved to the Rhythm” is by far my favorite song from the album and was performed at this year’s 2014 Billboard Music Awards. The audience had the privilege to see once again Michael Jackson returned to the stage in an unforgettable hologram presentation.
Another mega hit is the song: “Love Never Felt So Good,” which features Justin Timberlake. The song is already playing all over the radio and the video is constantly showing up on MTV.
(It kind of reminds me of MJ’S eighties hit song: “Bad”.)

“Xscape” already became Jackson’s tenth UK number-one album. The album also debuted at number one in over 50 countries including: Belgium, Denmark, France, and Spain. It debuted at number two on the US Billboard charts with first-week sales of 157,000 copies in the United States. In its second of week of sales, the album sold 67,000 more copies. In Canada, the album debuted at number three on the Canadian Albums Chart, selling 12,000 copies.
