Michael Jackson’s new single ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ is out

- May 2nd, 2014

The first single from late singer Michael Jackson’s posthumous album has been released online.

“Love Never Felt So Good,” originally written and recorded by Jackson in 1983 and features Justin Timberlake on vocals, got its debut Thursday night during the inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards.

Timberlake posted the news to his 32 million followers on Twitter, with a message that included a link to the song and the comment #PLAYITLOUD.

The track is the debut single for “Xscape,” which will be released on May 13 by Epic Records in partnership with Jackson’s estate.

The album will feature eight previously unreleased songs from Jackson that were recorded between 1983 and 1999.

The track will no doubt be a winner with fans of the King of Pop – it combines Jackson’s infectious vocals over a catchy beat (reminiscent of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough) with JT adding his own swagger to the song.

Jackson, one of the most influential artists in music, having sold 1 billion records worldwide, died in 2009 at age 50 in Los Angeles from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol. The powerful drug was given to him by his personal physician while he was rehearsing for a series of 50 comeback concerts in London.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this – but I really like it. Maybe because it’s from his heyday in the 80s?
