Justin Timberlake to Appear on Michael Jackson's Posthumous Album 'Xscape'
Michael Jackson will forever remain in history as the King of Pop, and this year, his legacy continues with a second posthumous album, coming out almost five years after his death.
The new record "Xscape" will be released May 12 in the UK and May 27 in the US and will feature tons of material MJ had stored away before his passing. It will also include new additions by popular voices like Justin Timberlake.
Justin continuously honors Michael Jackson as a major inspiration for his nine-time Grammy Award winning music, which often parallels the late singer's falsetto notes and pop beats. So the collaboration is sure to make history.
Other artists who will also be featured on the album include Mary J. Blige, D'Angelo, drummer Questlove and guitarist Jesse Johnson of The Time.
Timbaland, Epic Records mogul L.A. Reid will serve as the executive producers for the eight-track record with help from StarGate, Herom 'Jroc' Harmon and Rodney Jerkins.
