will.i.am recently spoke out against the new, posthumous Michael Jackson album, Michael, claiming that the pop icon would not have wanted material that he hadn't given his okay on released, but now Akon, who is featured on the new single, Hold My Hand, has publicly disagreed!

He says:

"I don't see anything disrespectful about it … these albums would have come out if [MJ] was alive or dead so I think this helps to keep his legacy alive."

Inneresting perspective!

What do U think?? Is it appropriate for Sony to release a new Michael Jackson album without his consent??

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?
