Timbaland Previews New Michael Jackson Song

michael jackson timbaland Timbaland Previews New Michael Jackson Song

As the age old adage goes, greatness doesn’t die – it lives on and inspires.

Hence, it’s little surprise that the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, continues to do just that five years after his sudden passing.

With the assistance of MJ’s longtime label Epic Records and its present-day leader LA Reid, hitmaker Timbaland is currently hard at work on a project that will see previously unheard Jackson jams re-imagined for a modern audience.

So as to whet appetites, Timbo previewed a cut christened ‘Slave To The Rhythm’ as part of his Timbaland Thursdays series.

Last Summer, a tragic version featuring the unworthy vocals of a certain Justin Bieber hit the interweb, however it appears the cut has been polished aplenty and sanitized of that nonsense.

How is the song shaping up now? You decide below…

8e5cfe19e5f5450edf7fafa5de031625 Weigh In:  Billboard Ranks Best Superbowl Half Time Shows Ever

It is quite literally the biggest show on Earth.  Often playing to (present and distant) crowds of 90 million+, the SuperBowl Half-time Show is every year’s must see performance with only an elite group of pop superstar’s able to claim they’ve headlined one.

michael jackson aeg verdict e1380753053985 Breaking News: AEG Live Found Not Guilty In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Trial

After months of testimony, the verdict in Katherine Jackson‘s case against AEG Live has been handed down in a Californian court room.

The concert promoter has been found Not Guilty of causing the death of the King of Pop Michael Jackson by way of negligence.

As has become cemented in history, the iconic star died on June 25th 2009, after being administered a fatal dose of Propafol by Dr Conrad Murray.

Though Murray was found Guilty of causing Jackson’s death back in 2011, this case (brought jointly by Katherine and the singer’s three children) decided whether AEG were at fault for hiring Murray and ultimately causing Jackson’s passing.

Timbaland Announces Major New Michael Jackson Project

timbaland michael jackson e1377649154865 Timbaland Announces Major New Michael Jackson Project

In life and now death, the name Michael Jackson denotes more than a musician, it denotes an industry.

It’s no surprise then that another project is being cooked up to add to the late icon’s catalogue.

The singer, who died of cardiac arrest on June 25th 2009 aged 50, was housed at Sony’s Epic Records for the vast majority of his career, and continues to be after his passing. ‘Michael’, the King of Pop’s first posthumous set, arrived in 2010 to much controversy (see: debate over legitimacy of vocals). Hoping to right those wrongs and restore the anticipation for “new Michael” that followed his death, label head L.A. Reid has called on hitmaker Timbaland.

Speaking with Diddy’s Revolt TV, the music maestro revealed that he has been tapped to work on the “big” project and dished on the pressure attached to working on fresh MJ.

Peep a teaser for the interview after the jump…
