that aint MJ sorry guys

# 7

Yeahhh… it looks like some boy from Backstreet Boys singing instead of MJ….I like the song, but the lyric is a little confusing, once MJ would never everr everrr sing this way telling these things about himself.

The bit is so hot and of course he won’t sound like he did on the Bad album he was nearly 50 here and he had experienced various throat problems through the years especially during History tour .
I hate Sony with all my heart but I doubt they would be so stupid to give us someone who is not Michael or maybe I am giving them too much credit LOL I don’t know what to think about this.

yeah. all of a sudden MJ is going to start singing about himself and his life. Give me a break. This has fake written all over it.

Maybe it Michael Jackson – maybe not. It’s certainly not unheard of for singers/bands to discard music tracks from CD’s most likely because they’re no good, right?

I doubt very much that if Michael were still alive & in charge this would EVER have seen (heard) the light of day. If I understand correctly… it’s the record company putting this new CD out rather than the MJ Estate – If so, who’s tone deaf here?

that’s FAKE!!! it’s NOT MICHAEL!!! even his nephews confirmed that on their twitters!!!

Oh this is so Michael! Please, leave Katherine the Greedy out of this! Go find out a little how she hates the Estate and why. This is Michael who is 50, whose body, including his voice has been through hell and high water. This is by the way both the Estate and Sony putting it out there and though it is not how it would have been if he were alive, he isn’t. Let this be his last album, as a memory to his genius and let it be. You’ll get your money Katherine anyway, so shut up!

Ah yes, before you all start ranting about saint Katherine – the other when I and other people wrote about her, and her release of that ‘new Michael song just for the fans’ we got thumbs down and rants one page long. In case you haven’t heard, they are now retracting that it is a new song – why – because fans who really know Michael’s work can’t be fooled!

Also, the very same man who works with Katherine at the Vault is Howard Mann is the same man who MJ sued, twice! And yet saint Katherine has no problems working with a man her son had a huge problem with. Please. The only thing that matters to that woman is money, to her and the rest of the parasites she raised.

Agree with those who think it’s a fake. Some impostor.

People need to realize that :
1.The man was nearly 50 in this again his voice wasn’t going to be like it was when he was 21 just look at Whitney .
2.This is unfinished unused material who wouldn’t have seen the light of day if he was alive he himself said he recorded a lot of songs that he didn’t use in the finished album because he wasn’t happy with it.
3.The people coming out with this so called album are morons because of the reasons above.

Louis Gonzales @ 11/08/2010 at 8:51 am

Yeah I agree that this is micahel jackson. Yet, the reason he sounds so different is because:
1.This was done in 2007, his voice could have changed.
2. The chorus plus autotune are probably in place and that effects his voice.
3.It’s been cleaned up from an incomplete version to a finished product.

Also I mean the lyrics are something that Michael Jackson would write, I mean I do believe that he wrote childhood and xscape.

That’s not Michael. Period.

blah… nothing special… I respect his work, and so should sony… when he put sometnihg as an outtake, and not include it on an album, they should respect that…

it doesnt sound like him! dunno why people are going on about how he is 50 and his voice was different coz anyone who watched This Is It will know that actually his voice sounded pretty much the same just weeks before his death
and dont forget he rerecorded old songs around 2008 for the thriller 25 album with fergie, will.i.am and that lot, so if this was recorded around the same time how can his voice be so different?

Yeah I agree this does not sound like him and I dont think it is him.

That’s not him.. :( boycott!

@mj fan:

I wanted to say exactly what you said. Just to add- this is not Michael and period. and the rest should see movie – this is it, to hear his voice again.

first, his kids on oprah, and now, publicly releasing his (or not his) materials without his consent….they just won’t let him RIP will they?

@another mj fan:
thank god some of his fans are using common sense to see this is absoutly fake! I think other fans will buy into it just to have something new of Michaels but doesnt his previous work stand for itself? We all know most of these leaked “demos” wouldnt have seen the light of day had mj still been here.

I don’t know what to believe. On THIS IS IT, Michael did not sound any different than his records…and it does sound like Michael in some parts and in others, it just seems different…I don’t know what to believe anymore. I’m REALLY pissed because I wanted something good and I actually like the song, but I don’t know anymore.
