Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson wouldn't like new album

Michael Jackson's family claim he would not approve of the upcoming 'Xscape' album.

The late King of Pop's nephew, TJ Jackson, who along with his brothers Taryll and Taj formed the pop group 3T, insists his late uncle was a ''perfectionist'' and would not be happy with the collection of new material being released without his final seal of approval.

Speaking of the album, which sees eight unheard tracks released on May 13, TJ told the Sun newspaper: ''I have mixed emotions because as an artist and as his nephew I know he'd want a final listen before anything he did was released to the public.

''Saying that though, that's my uncle and I want him and anything associated with him to be successful.''

Michael's label Epic records announced on Monday (31.03.14) that they would release the new tracks from the late singer's vaults with music executive L.A. Reid lining up producers to ''contemporise'' the record.

Fans have been reassured the album will only be helmed by producers Michael had worked with in the past or expressed a strong interest in collaborating with.

Timbaland has been named the lead producer, while Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome 'Jroc' Harmon and John McClain have also worked on the project.

I can see TJ's point, but how can anything be approved by Michael now? Anything that is put out in Michael's name has got to take the risk that MJ's fans and others, will still make it a success because it is Michael's music. We all know that there is no way these songs will ever be able to get that final Michael Jackson's magical touch, but we also know they were still the words coming from Michael's heart. If we go by the logic that these songs may not be what Michael liked then I guess any future music coming from Michael's heart would cease and his voice would be silenced! The fans don't want to see that happen, so they are looking forward to getting what little of Michael that is his magic through someone else's eyes!
