Sony just released MJ’s first new single “Breaking News” from his upcoming CD due out in December. Some of his fans and family are outraged calling this track a fake. I know MJ’s voice better than I know my own, so when I heard the song on MichaelJackson.com and I can tell that Michael’s voice was taken from different songs and edited together. There may be some trickery involved. His nephews, TJ and Taryll Jackson took to twitter to express how they feel about this situation. I agree with the Jacksons on this one.

There’s many MJ vocal impersonators. Some better than others. But there is only ONE Michael Jackson. Deceptively merging shady vocals with MJ samples (from prior MJ records) will never fool me. Why they would ignore the obvious, look the other way and rush a suspicious track that was NEVER on my Uncle’s radar is beyond me. I’m disgusted, disappointed and saddened. And before the media starts to smear our name, just remember we are COMMITTED (as our Uncle Michael always knew) to protect his name and his amazing legacy he worked his whole life for. We have nothing to gain and we know they will try to drag our name through the mud. But we know how much he valued his legacy and his fans. And cheating either is unacceptable. “Lies run sprints, but the truth runs marathons”

to all the mj fans… regarding the song “breaking news” i am so sorry you have to deal with this. my uncle loved you so much and would not want it this way. However there are songs that ARE my uncle singing on the upcoming album and I will support those 100% But I will not support “Breaking News” and a few others because it simply is not him. They tried to fool me and they tried to fool you. I told them it would never happen.
