Michael Jackson‘s posthumous XSCAPE release is seeing its first drop today with the liberation of its Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins produced title track. For those out of the loop, the entire project is the product of LA Reid‘s attempt to bring Michael’s legacy to a younger generation by “contemporizing” material that spans nearly five decades. Whether that seems like a good move or not, we can’t be upset with the slated personnel. This offering struts MJ’s patented peppering vocal refrain over a shiny modern production scheme, but manages to hold true to the funk. Listen to the first offering from Michael Jackson’s posthumous XSCAPE below, but be sure to keep your ear to the ground for more drops from the album and preorder the release via iTunes before it drops May 13th.
