Michael Jackson"s 'Hold My Hand" was officially released on Monday; this is the first posthumous single of the singer. The song features R&B singer Akon, he has recorded the song with Jackson in Las Vegas way back in 2007, however, it didn"t see the light because Michael felt it was not ready for the release. Akon, however, feels differently about the song as he went back to the studio to master it up for the release.
Sony and Epic had planned to release about half a dozen of Michael"s unreleased tapes in the years to come. But Jackson's family voiced their displeasure about the release.And they also termed the release of Will.I.Am as “disrespectful".
But whatever the Jackson family and other singers believe this release to be, ethical or unethical, the album Michael is all set to give 'Take That"s Christmas' number a run for the numero uno spot in the charts. The first of the six posthumous albums is all set to hit the stores on December 14.
Michael"s fans can hear this 'Hold My Hand" ballad on Jackson"s official website and it has been touted to be one of the famous ballads of MJ.
