Michael Jackson’s new album, “Michael,” seems to be popping up around the internet a week before its release date.
I’ve found “Monster,” featuring 50 Cent, hiding in plain sight.
“The Way You Love Me” is on You Tube.
“Another Day,” written and produced by Lenny Kravitz, is also out there.
Add those to “Breaking News,” “Hold My Hand,” and “Much Too Soon,” already released by Sony. That’s six of the ten tracks.
The good news is, both “Monster” and “The Way You Love Me” are just great. “Monster” is one of the three Eddie Cascio tracks. “The Way You Love Me” is a classic Michael ballad that hearkens back to “I Can’t Just Stop Loving You” and “Got to Be There.”
And yes, all three Cascio tracks are sung by Michael. There are no imposters. The album version of “Breaking News” is a little different than the one that streamed last month on Michael’s website. It should convince everyone that it’s MJ himself.
