Randy Jackson Continues To Question The Authenticity Of New Michael Jackson Album!

randy-jackson-continues-to-question-the-authenticity-of-new-michael-jackson-album

We wonder if we'll ever know the truth about this.

Michael Jackson's brother, Randy, was answering questions for fans via his Twitter page, and when the topic of the authenticity of his brother's new album, Michael, came up, he re-affirmed what many of the Jackson family are alleging: that many of the vocals are done by an impersonator!

He wrote:

Me and my nephew were the first to say that it wasn't his voice on some of the tracks

The family and the executers of the Estate, Branca and Mclain are not on the same page

We don't see eye to eye

John McClain insisted that no family members were allowed at his studio where the project was being completed

I became suspicious about the album, when I heard when armed guards were involved since my brothers passing, May he rest in peace.

My first thought was, what are they trying to hide

Teddy Riley was brought in just to mix and insisted on switching studios

At which he called me to come down and hear my brothers music, may he rest in peace.

I heard the music and I immediately said it wasn't his voice

Now McClain points the finger at Sony, when he got the tracks before it even went to Sony

But I think they all know all now it is not him

In fact, when I heard about the Sony deal, it made me sick

Sony has 250 mil reasons to convince the public that it is his voice, if you know what I mean.

Like AEG, they were cutting deals with the Estate before I could get my brother in the ground. May he rest in peace.

Okay, after this Sony deal was inked, McClain went to work putting together the first album

Calling all over the place looking for music with my brothers voice on it

From what I heard, he didn't care about the quality or how complete the vocals were.

Why would Sony sign a 10 album deal over a period of seven years and

McClain couldn't find enough product for one album

If they don't even have enough product for one album how are they going to make 10 albums?

And as to the vocal authenticators, they work for pay. And I wasn't there when they did their analysis

Some of the songs are him, and some aren't. I would be my life on that.

Since my brothers passing, over one billion dollars has been profited.

I want his legacy to be respected as if he were here.

My brother was a perfectionists, and they are paying no regards to quality

Wow! Those are some serious allegations!

And we hate to think that people would be so disrespectful of Michael's memory that they would knowingly release music under his name that he did not perform, but Randy argues a pretty strong case for himself!

So sad and unfortunate.

What do U think?? Are the MJ vocals legit??

Is The New Michael Jackson Album Fake??

michael-jackson-children-allege-that-new-album-was-recorded-by-sound-alike

We don't know what's going on here, but these are some serious allegations.

As we've reported, Sony is prepping the release of a new Michael Jackson album, which will feature 10-12 never-before-heard tracks from the late pop icon.

However, Jackson's children, Prince and Paris, are now alleging that they were present when their father recorded many of these songs, and the versions that are going to be released are FAKES!

Sources claim that five of the songs in question were recorded at the New Jersey home of Eddie Cascio, and Jackson and his kids stayed with the producer and his family for four months in 2007 while recording. Both Paris and Prince claim that they overheard the recording process and are "adamant" that the versions on the new album were sung by a sound-a-like.

Sony, however, counter-claims that sound experts have been brought in to confirm their products legitimacy, and they believe that the children are being "manipulated" by Katherine Jackson because she doesn't want the album released!

This is just out of control, and we truthfully have no idea what to believe ourselves!

But to think that Sony would knowingly release an album of fake Michael Jackson songs and take advantage of his fans like that is deeply distressing.

What do U think?? Do U believe the Jackson children or Sony??

Sony Loses American Idol Music Rights

Filed under: Music MinuteAmerican Idol

There's more shake-up going on at AI!

Sony has lost the American Idol's music rights to Universal Music Group.

19 Entertainment and Idol creator Simon Fuller struck a deal with Universal saying:

"With Idol celebrating our 10th season I wanted to inject some new power and weight behind our brand. We have been quietly delivering hits relentlessly for 9 seasons and Lucian Grainge and Jimmy Iovine's (Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M) ambition, commitment, and determination to push the boundaries and go even further with Idol was very compelling. It is exciting to have the world’s biggest show partnered with the world’s biggest music company.”

AI has sold more music than any other TV show and has moved more than 100 million units in North America and 120 million songs on iTunes. It seems like Fuller wasn't happy with the job Sony was doing to promote and handle such a powerhouse as American Idol.

Hmm, we wonder how many more changes are on the way…

New Michael Jackson Album To Be Released!

Filed under: Music MinuteMichael JacksonAkonNeYo

Yes, that's right!

An all-new Michael Jackson album will be released this November.

According to Jackson's manager Frank DiLeo, Jackson had more than 100 completed and unreleased songs that were kept in his vault.

Former Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola said last year that Michael "over-recorded" every time he step foot in the studio, recording "anywhere from 20 to 30 songs for each album. Any of them could have been as big a hit as the ones that came out."

Many of the unreleased songs were recorded during the '80s, in which the King of Pop created some of his best work such as Thriller and Bad. He also collaborated with Akon, Will.i.am, and Ne-Yo before his death.

The album will feature 10 unreleased songs and will be first in a 10-project, seven-year deal the Jackson estate has with Sony Music. The $250 million deal will also include reissues of Jackson's classic albums, a new greatest hits set, a DVD collection, and even a karaoke and dance video game titled Michael Jackson: The Video Game.

We're excited about hearing the unreleased tracks, but is the Jackson estate going a little too far with the MJ merchandise? What do U think?

Asian Whitney Soundalike Signs Record Deal!

With the state she seems to be in these days, maybe this kid can finish up the rest of her tour for her!

Taiwanese singer Lin Yu-chun, AKA the kid who sounds just like Whitney Houston in that Youtube video (above) - has signed a record deal with Sony Music!

He says:

"I still can't believe this is real. You don't have to be a good-looking man or woman to succeed. Just be yourself and try your best."

Lin became an overnight sensation when he appeared on the talent show Avenue To Stardom and performed the diva's hit I Will Always Love You, and will now release an album of both Chinese and English songs, set to hit shelves in July!

We have to admit, it will certainly be interesting to see if they actually give this kid a legit album or if he'll just be marketed as a gimmick! He definitely has a set of pipes on him!

What do U think?? Will U keep an eye out for Lin Yu-chun's debut album??
