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

Justin Timberlake

Long live the king. Justin Timberlake pays homage to Michael Jackson through dance in the video for “Love Never Felt So Good” off the late legend’s posthumous album Xscape.

In the feel-good clip, co-directed by Timberlake and Rich Lee, dancers recreate the pop icon’s signature moves from videos including “Bad,” “Billie Jean,” and “Thriller,” while fans sing along to his lyrics. It also features throwback footage of the King of Pop throughout his career.

The disco-soul jam, originally recorded by Jackson as a demo in 1983, was “contemporized” by Timbaland before Timberlake got on board. But he was hesitant to do the song at first.

“I’m such a loyal fan to him and his music that it seemed almost too much of a thing, but then I kept hearing this song and it just felt so good,” he told Ryan Seacrest. “It kind of spoke to me. It reminded me of some of the stuff [Timbaland] and I had worked on on 20/20 Experience.”

Even after death, MJ continues to sell records. Xscape is vying for No. 1 on next week’s chart with 125-150,000 copies.

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.

Not a Bad Thing

Justin Timberlake launches a search for love in the video for “Not a Bad Thing,” the third single off his album The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.

The video, which premiered on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” is based on a true story of a guy who proposed to his girlfriend on the Long Island Rail Road using Justin’s song. The clip is less music video and more a documentary about finding love, and doesn’t feature an appearance from Timberlake.

In their quest to find the lovers, a search party plasters signs around town and gets the word out on the radio and Twitter using the hash tag #haveyouseenthiscouple.

There is also commentary from couples who found true love, giving insight into their relationships.

Will their search prove successful? Watch them keep romance alive.
