Quincy Jones Snubs Jackson Comeback Album

Published: Wednesday 30th May 2007 by Sam
As the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, preps his comeback album, former collaborator Quincy Jones has stated that he will not be working on the project. According to Jones – who masterminded the ‘Off The Wall’, ‘Thriller’ and ‘Bad’ albums – he and Jackson have had conversations about the possibility of collaborating again but he isn’t interested. Jones had the following to say: ‘Man please, I’ve got enough to do. We already did that. I have talked to him about working with him again but I’ve got too much to do. I’ve got 900 products. I’m 74 years old. Give me a break.’
On the one hand, Quincy working on the CD looks good on paper-mainly for nostalgia. Yet, I can’t remember the last thing he’s produced. I think Michael should just stick with confirmed producers Will.i.Am, Rodney ‘Darkchild’ Jerkins and Ne-Yo and hurry with that album. The currently untitled CD is slated to drop toward the end of the year.

Will Michael Jackson’s Comeback Be a Success?

    I Would Love To See MJ Make A Success As A Come, I Believe He Can But Not So Sure He Will…

    Quincy Jones doesn’t have enough credibility to oversee a comeback for Michael. Michael can DEFINETLY pull this off…but yeah, sticking with the right producers is critical. I’m hoping he does a collaboration w/ Ne-Yo, and/or just works w/ Ne-Yo, Will.I.Am and even maybe Timbaland.

    I used to think it was a good idea for Jones and Jackson to work together again but I agree with you that at this point Mike needs to go with current garunteed hit makers. I’m sure there is a long list of producers who would love to work with Jackson.
