Michael Jackson - Xscape

Production: Babyface, Dr. Freeze, Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, L.A. Reid, Stargate, Timbaland

Lead Single: Love Never Felt So Good



It's been almost five years since Michael Jackson's death and more than a decade since his last solo album, Invincible, but the King of Pop's musical legacy will live on with the release of his new posthumous album, Xscape.

To protect the integrity of MJ's music, Xscape features previously recorded vocals, along with original or revamped production from superpower producers including Timbaland and Babyface.

The album's sole guest feature comes from Justin Timberlake, on lead single Love Never Felt So Good, and also included is the recently released Blue Gangsta.

UPDATE: We've added a Spotify stream of Xscape below, as well as a video album review.
