Michael Jackson’s ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ Out with Help From Usher and Justin Timberlake [Video/Audio]

Michael Jackson's 'Xscape'
Epic Records

The new Michael Jackson song, titled ‘Love Never Felt So Good,’ was released on his newest album Tuesday.

For the single, the late King of Pop got a little help his modern contemporaries. Usher danced along to the song as a snippet was played at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Meanwhile, Justin Timberlake lent his voice to help modernize the archived Jackson song. 

‘Love Never Felt So Good’ is the first single off ‘Xscape,’ the second posthumous album following the singer’s death in 2009.

In a collaboration between Epic Records and MJJ Music, the album features eight unreleased Michael Jackson songs which were selected by L.A. Reid to be reworked and retooled for release. Reid assembled a team comprising of Timbaland and other producers to fine-tune the previously abandoned songs. 

The album dropped yesterday.

At the iHeartRadio Music Awards earlier this month, Reid introduced the song to the audience which featured a stage full of dancers wearing Michael Jackson’s signature outfits, and dancing to his signature moves in front of projections of the singer’s most famous music videos. Usher later appeared from a cloud of smoke and danced along to the song as if he were embodying the spirit of the late singer.

The original version of ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ was originally intended as a duet between Jackson and Johnny Mathis back in 1983. Co-written by Jackson and legendary Paul Anka, the track was rewritten as a duet with Justin Timberlake for the ‘Xscape’ album. The deluxe edition of the ‘Xscape’ album will feature the original versions for all eight MJ songs in addition to their remixed counterparts.

What do you think, MJ fans, of the new song? Are you excited to hear more from ‘Xscape’?
