A new Michael Jackson song called “Breaking News” was leaked online and began streaming on November 8, 2010. According to Michael Jackson’s record label, the song was recorded by the King of Pop, but Jackson’s family members have a different opinion.
“Sony Music began streaming a new single titled ‘Breaking News’ from Michael Jackson’s upcoming album ‘Michael.’ The track is currently available to listen to in its entirety on MichaelJackson.com, however, the late King of Pop’s family is disputing its authenticity. ‘Sounding like Michael Jackson and BEING Michael Jackson are two different things,’ tweeted Tarryl Jackson, who is not alone among Jackson relatives saying this is not Jackson’s voice. Sony and others close to the recording stand by the track.”
Leaving the song’s authenticity aside for a moment, others are judging the song’s artistic merit. Here’s the latest from the blogosphere:
