I have to admit, I'm not really a fan of Justin's Timberlake's music and I don't think he's all that great of an actor either. That said I really don't have anything against the guy either. As far as music role models go Justin has kept himself pretty clean. No sex scandals or drugs or any out of control escapades and definitely nothing funny with kids (like Jacko). Heck, I even thought he was really cool when he was asked out to a ball by a female US Marine via Twitter and accepted and made good on his word. That said I think it sucks to see him get sucked into this whole Xscape nonsense as Sony tries for a quick cash grab from a twisted dead pedo. Just had to say it.

Sony is doing anything it can to promote this pathetic posthumous Wacko garbage. It remains to be seen what the dead clown with do once the album drops May 13th because Sony is certainly trying hard. Hopefully, they will be stunned and disapponted like their other failures of Michael Jackson vault material. Floons will sure to be the first ones to brag if the dead clown tops the billboard top 200 charts.

Epic's strategy is confusing to me. If the Wikipedia article is to be believed, the Justin remix is on disc two of the deluxe edition and the solo remixed version is on disc one but yet it's sounding like they're releasing the Justin version as a single? Confusing...

Maybe Epic is using Justin to promote a sinking ship? I don't know how the reception will be of this album. So far, I have only heard skepticism from the mouths of people. I'm sure f'loons will scramble out of the Church of Michael Jesus Jackson into the stores to buy it. But I fail to see how it could have lasting power.

It is obvious why Justin Timberlake was featured on Wacko's posthumous album. He is a fairly successful pop act of today, which still is not saying much but maybe that is what Sony wants. Modern pop exposure and perhaps, they believe it will get radio play. They are hoping it will appeal to younger buyers, not just floons. I've also noticed that while they seem to be pushing the album, they continue to neglect the fact that the dead clown was a child molesting freak. That includes some modern pop acts like Justin Timerlake that apparently does not care that he lent his so called talents to help a dead pedophile. I am pretty sure Epic/Sony are pulling out all the tricks they can to promote "Xscape" so that sells as much as possible. They want to brag about it going number one because they believe it will add extra sales for the release. I am hoping it backfires on them badly but I am not sure what shall happen. It is no secret that recording industry is hurting. What amazes me is that some people still believe that the clown is a giant in the music world. It is sad that they continue to ignore what a dirt bag Michael Jackson was. Anything goes and Wacko's filthy lifestyle should be either swept under the rug or accepted. It says a lot about people in the entertainment business today. Unfortunately, Wacko having sex with seven to twelve year old boys does not seem to register to them as that big of a deal. Even so, if the album does well in the first week, it will gave them more to promote as proof that Wacko can still have a fanbase five years into his demise. What floons seem to be doing is ignoring the clown's personal life and what some haters say. They dismiss us as being jealous of the dancing grasshopper.

If you had done your homework they removed Michael Jackson's solo LNFSG and left the remix with TJ, WHY? And put it back up today. MJ is at 62 NOT 82 thank you very much.

The song, "Love Never Felt So Good" is on You Tube already. It sounds like an updated disco tune to me. Surprising that it was Paul Anka that actually composed the song over three decades ago.I guess it is okay for being the clown in duet with Justin Timberlake. It is better than I thought it might be. Its sales depends on whether people will be willing to buy the song or the album. I do not think most of the buying public is willing to spend their hard earned money to make the fat hag, Mama Jacky more wealthy or support the dead pedophile, Michael Jackson. Besides, I couldn't help thinking what the dead Wacko actually might have thought about love and how it felt so good. Boys were definitely his chosen lovers.

The buzz has died down. The JT version peaked at #4:

And besides with MJ dead, doubt the label can do much. I heard another of the songs, "Chicago", a dated naughties ('00s) sounding contemporary R&B track (yawn). Similar to what his nephew Austin is doing...lol

Hmmmmmmmm...

Very interesting that the single, "Love Never Felt So Good" is not being well recieved and is quickly becoming a major flop for Sony/Epic even with Justin Timberlake. I guess that confirms without a doubt, Michael Jackson's popularity is fading to all time lows regardless of Sony's extreme marketing plans for Michael Jackson's posthumous "Xscape" disc. It seems that they wasted their money trying to create excitement and buzz for the new album. Without a hit single, the new release is pretty much dead in the water before it has even reached retailers. Wow. The reason is really quite simple. The disgraced clown is dead and he ruined his musical legacy. I will be surprised if the cd hits number one anywhere in the world now. Failure is exactly what the greedy Jacksons and Sony deserve. The dead Michael Jackson was a disgusting pedophile. Wade Robson's child molestation trial is next. June 2nd 2014. Pay up, Mama Jacky. Evan Chandler's threats that Wacko would never sell another record again has come true. lol.

No surprise there. It's just what we all suspected would happen. The entire album will be a flop as well, no doubt.

The CD will be a flop, especially in the shadows of the Wade trial in the background. It's much more than bad timing, though, isn't it.

I am quite surprised that the CD is most likely going to be a huge flop strictly because of Sony/Epic's high profile promotion for the disc. That obviously does not seem to be working and the general public has responded with lukewarm interest. I think Michael Jackson has lost a lot of his momentum following his untimely death in 2009. The upcoming Wade Robson trial can not be good news for the estate but there are other factors of why Michael's posthumous releases are not doing well. Of course floons are going to buy the disc and will continue living in the fantasy world that the dead clown is still burning up with huge sales and hits. To me, it is more like how long will the cd stay at its peak before it starts dropping off the charts. After all, an album needs hits to help generate sales or most people will just ignore it. Jacko certainly did a number on his legacy whether floons like it or not. Sony deserves low sales by trying to push this clown onto a youth dominated market. Death really hurts Wacko because very few people care about him anymore. His past caught up to him and it is not being forgotten or forgiven. That is the estate and Sony's wishful thinking.

I agree that it's hard to sell a CD if there's no hit single to draw buyers in. Of course, all the f'loons will run out and buy it, but there seems to be fewer and fewer fans these days. Plus, the Wade Robson trial going on at the same time won't help sales in the least. Sony and The Jackson camp are trying to breathe life into something that is already dead in the water. There won't be much money to be made here to their obvious dismay.
