The first official single from MICHAEL is available for streaming now. The song entitled “Hold My Hand”, a duet with Akon, is a song they recorded in 2007. A handwritten note from Michael belonging to his Estate indicated his desire that “Hold My Hand” be the first single on his next project. However, in its unfinished state, the song leaked out in 2008. Akon recently completed the new and final production of “Hold My Hand.”

On December 14th, Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson, will release the much-anticipated new album MICHAEL. The album contains ten tracks, produced by an esteemed group of producers along with Michael Jackson. While primarily focused on songs that Michael worked on recently, there are also earlier compelling tracks.

I first heard the song in mexico jajaja beautiful song! I LOVE MJ FOREVER!!!

I like Breaking News more.

I love MJ and I love the work that he has done with akon. However I think that the demo version of the song "Hold my hand" sounds alot better than the new finished version. The new version sounds so busy. The vocals are croweding each other and it sounds as if they are singing over each other its not as smooth as the demo version. The demo version is more of a Michael Jackson song very well put together. It seems as if it is over done now. I hope that they make a MJ and Akon maxi album with all the duets that they have done. Some of MJ's B sides and remixes like "2BaD" the BOTDF version and "Cry" off the Invincible album "Money" off the history album. Combine those with "wanna be startin something" 2008 off the Thriller 25th album, both versions of "Hold my hand" and that would be a great project. Plus since the MJ estate owns some of Akons music slap some of his songs on it too. That would be awsome.

OMG!!! I LOVE IT. Michael Jackson's voice is sooo beautiful. His music is like NO others. He truly IS The Best - The King.

This song makes me miss him even more and brings tears to my eyes

I want to hold his hand. Beautiful Sweet Michael - I LOVE YOU MORE
