50 Cent, Akon, & Lenny Kravitz Make Appearances On New Michael Jackson Album

michael jackson collaborations and track listing announced

Looks like we've got yet another reason to be skeptical about Michael's new album.

The official track listing for MJ's album Michael has been released, and it features collaborations with 50 Cent, Akon, and Lenny Kravitz.

We're not 100% convinced that 50 Cent should be part of Michael Jackson's legacy, but what's done is done. You never know…they MIGHT surprise us.

Michael's collaboration with Akon, Hold My Hand, will be the album's lead track.

Here's what Akon had to say about the song:

"The world was not ready to hear 'Hold My Hand' when it leaked a couple years ago. We were devastated about it. But its time has definitely come; now in its final state, it has become an incredible, beautiful, anthemic song. I'm so proud to have had the chance to work with Michael, one of my all time idols."

Guess we'll have to wait and see how the song's progressed.

Here's the official full list of tracks for the album:

"Hold My Hand" (Duet with Akon)
"Hollywood Tonight"
"Keep Your Head Up"
"(I Like) The Way You Love Me"
"Monster" (Featuring 50 Cent)
"Best of Joy"
"Breaking News"
"(I Can't Make It) Another Day" (Featuring Lenny Kravitz)
"Behind the Mask"
"Much Too Soon"

What do U think about these collaborations on Michael's final album?

    Love Lenny Kravitz. But this whole project seems hinky. I still won't buy it though - I can't get past the whole pedophile thing.



  2. 2

    I Love Michael's music but would i let my son hang out with him alone? Definitely not! but, thats a whole other subject! I was however lucky enough to see one of his final shows @ MSG awhile back. IT WAS AMAZING!!!



  3. 3

  4. 4

    I care just enough to post this "I don't care" message. That is how much I don't care. With each word it seemingly makes me care more, but……. I don't.

If you dont want to buy the album well good for you !! No one cares!! I for one can not wait for the album since Michael is not here I don't expect perfection but I know it will the much better then a lot of music out there right now. I love you MJ

    Re: JLa – He was not 'proven innocent' - he simply had enough money to buy off his victim's parents and pay for a huge legal team. The verdict may have been 'not guilty', but that does not mean innocent - it just means he got away with it. You have your head in the sand. Yes, his music was great - that doesn't mean he was innocent.

    Why should we support a child molester????? He molested several children, some of them with cancer.
    What did he do with all the money and fame? He "bought" boys and pills.

    Re: rosebud99 – oh please… you came back here to see if you had a reaction to your first comment…
    where are your facts that support your stupid comments… a little research from you and you will find out that Michael Jackson did NOT pay anything to anybody!!
    His insurance company paid Evan Chandler, despite protests from Michael and his legal team!
    Evan was recorded on tape saying how he planned to set Michael up and blackmail him, The boy, Jordan Chandler never said Michael done anything to him, he denied it, the accusations were made by his dad Evan, who has since killed himself!
    And as for the Arvizo`s, well there was never any evidence to support their accusations either, over 70 officers raided neverland (more than what is sent out to arrest a dangerous murderer) and they didnt find one piece of evidence that linked Michael to being a pedophile, they interviewed over 200 other kids that had previously stayed at neverland and not one said anything bad had happened to them.
    No wonder Janet Arvizo walked out of court with her head covered, and where is she now?? never heard a thing from her since, if that was my child who had been molested, Michael jackson or not, i would be shouting about it untill the day i died!!
    nothing but disgusting liars!

    Re: JLa – well said… people are far too quick to judge him by what the newspapers say….
    he had his day in court, and he said he would be aquitted and he was!
    Michael Jackson was innocent!
    i mean, a sercurity guard at neverland even said he saw Michael molest Macauley Culkin yet Macauley Culkin stood up in the court and said "Absolutly not!" i mean i think he would know if he was molested or not!! just because someone has said it dosnt mean it is true…
    i could say i was molested by rosebud99, would that automatically make it true?



  13. 13

    [The allegations are] absolutely ridiculous. … Somebody told me you should probably check out CNN because they're saying something about you. I just couldn't believe it. It was amazing to me that nobody even approached me and asked if these allegations were true - MACAULEY CULKIN.



  14. 14

    lol nobody even commented on the point of this post….there's a song on this album featuring 50 cent. 50 CENT. just, no. no. i will just play my MJ albums that were released while he was alive, with his blessing.

    Re: rosebud99 – You try to come off as knowing what your talking about but you are just as ignorant as the rest of them. It's incredibly sad and annoying to see that the case of him being "innocent" vs. "guilty" is still being played out on sites like this when it was actually played out in a COURT OF LAW over 5 years ago with the verdict of Acquitted of all charges being handed down by a judge and jury. Acquitted means that the prosecution had NO EVIDENCE and could NOT prove their case in a court of law so their was absolutely no way that the person accused (Michael) could be proven guilty or innocent. Get it? People like you are so hung up on the fact that Michael didn't walk out of that courtroom with having the title of "innocent" when your not looking at the bigger picture which was why and how that case even made it to court in the first place and why nothing ever came of it. It should have never made it to court because there was no case to begin with. If you are still so hung up on that case, perhaps you should do proper research to help you get past the "whole pedophile thing." Michael Joseph Jackson was no pedophile.

    Regarding the topic at hand… I will be buying this album. I'll be buying this album for 2 reasons in particular which are because although 2 or 3 of these songs ARE NOT MICHAEL the rest of them are and of course I want to hear him. The second reason is regarding sell's. If this album doesn't sell the way people expect it to sell, it will then be labeled as not being a success in the eyes of the negative people out their and that is a no go. Alot of fans are against buying this album because we all know how much of a perfectionist Michael was and knowing him, these songs would have probably never been released at this stage. Also alot of fans are against SONY and their ploy to full us by putting a couple songs on the album that are obviously not all MJ or not MJ at all *cough cough* "Breaking News" I respect all fans decisions regarding the purchase of this album. I don't agree with SONY whatsoever but I will be buying this album to carry Michael's legacy.
