Akon on new Michael Jackson single
The first official single from the new Michael Jackson album MICHAEL will be released in the UK on Sunday, November 28th.
"Hold My Hand" will be unveiled on www.michaeljackson.com on Monday (15th November)
"Hold My Hand" a duet with Akon, is a song they recorded in 2007. A handwritten note from Michael belonging to his Estate indicated his desire that "Hold My Hand" be the first single on his next project. However, in its unfinished state, the song leaked out in 2008. Akon recently completed the new and final production of Hold My Hand.
Akon comments, "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. Im so proud to have had the chance to work with Michael, one of my all time idols."
On December 13th, Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release the much-anticipated new album MICHAEL. The album contains ten tracks, produced by an esteemed group of producers along with Michael Jackson.
