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.

Justin Bieber is feeling like the King of Pop. The teen superstar has compared himself to his idol Michael Jackson in a split black-and-white photo on Instagram.

The Biebs posted a pic of himself waving to fans from atop his chauffeured car after being released from jail alongside a 2004 photo of Jackson, who stood on top of an SUV outside court after pleading not guilty to child molestation charges.

“What more can they say ♛,” wrote Biebs, along with a crown symbol.
