First Single From ‘Michael’ Now Available

The first official single off Michael Jackson’s upcoming posthumous album, ‘Michael’, has now been released. The track, called Hold My Hand, features Akon and was originally leaked back in 2008 as an unfinished version. Akon went back into the studio and finished up the track and it’s now ready for release.

Akon recently spoke about working with Michael and he had this to say.

“Just to be in the same room [with him], I felt like everything I wanted to achieve in life had already been achieved,” Akon said. “That’s how incredible that aura [is].”

The track is a bit different from the one we heard last week, Breaking News. Hold My Hand is a slower song, more of a love ballad, but a great song nonetheless. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Remember to pick up the album when it hits store shelves on December 14th.
