Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Michael Jackson’s new song (we’re using “new” very loosely, the song was recorded in 1983) is premiering today. Love Never Felt So Good, will debut tonight during the first ever iHeartRadio Music Awards, which air at 8 PM. on NBC, according to a tweet from iHeartRadio. The song will feature a “special guest” – likely Justin Timberlake, who is listed as the artist for the track – along with MJ, of course.

The premiere is just for the re-arranged version, so if you feel like listening to Love Never Felt So Good a bit earlier, you can check out the original 1983 demo. Johnny Mathis also recorded a version of the song in 1984, according to Rolling Stone. Love Never Felt So Good will be the first off a posthumous album of eight previously unreleased songs and new cuts. The album, titled Xscape will be released of May 27th.

Justin Timberlake is likely to perform the song tonight at iHeartRadio.

Epic Records CEO La Reid personally compiled the album. For Xscape he searched through four decades of music stored in the Jackson estate vault, looking for songs with completed vocal tracks that he then handed off to a variety of producers to give them a "fresh, contemporary" sound. Some of the names on the list include Timbaland, who worked as the album’s lead producer, as well as Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon, John McClain and Rodney Jerkins (who worked on the original version of the title track, "Xscape," with Jackson). A deluxe edition of the album will also include the original versions of each song.

HA,HA,HA, the guest star was USHER!!! I'm so glad it WAS NOT Justin Timberlake, Justin Beiber or any other Justin!! My bet is if Chris Brown wasn't being kept in jail as if he killed somebody (like Zimmerman did), he would have been the perfect person to do this performance, but Usher was a good replacement!!
