New Music: Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake – ‘Love Never Felt So Good’

Love Never Felt So Good

The King of Pop continues to bless the world with his timeless music. After receiving its world premiere from Usher at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the first single off Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Xscape has been released in full.

The ’70s-inspired disco jam, contemporized by Timbaland, was originally written by Jackson and Paul Anka in 1983, but feels just as current today. In addition to the solo version, Justin Timberlake joins his idol on an alternate duet, which takes listeners back to the Off the Wall era.

“Baby, love never felt so good / And I’d die if it ever could / Not like you hold me, hold me,” sings MJ.

Due May 13, Xscape features eight unreleased songs with appearances from Mary J. Blige, D’Angelo, Questlove, and The Time’s Jesse Johnson, plus additional production from Stargate, Jerome “Jroc” Harmon, John McClain, and Rodney Jerkins.

Listen to both versions of MJ’s single below.

    LOL garbage. I’m not going to say this is great just because it’s Michael Jackson. Borefes both songs. Sounds dated. Stop putting out Michael Jacson songs please

    @????, Of course it sounds dated, it was recorded in 1983, one year after Thriller was released. Stop hating.
