Usher took the stage to dance along to MJ’s never-before released song that will appear on his posthumous album, Xscape. HollywoodLifers, what did you think of the song?
Michael Jackson is about to top the charts again. He recorded the song “Love Never Felt So Good” in 1983 and now we’re hearing the newly produced version of this song for the very first time! We love that Usher debuted the song on behalf of the King of Pop on May 1 at the 2014 iHeartRadio Music Awards!
Michael Jackson’s ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ iHeartRadio Music Awards
The song has an 80s feel and we definitely wish that MJ was alive to see how much his fans love the song. Epic Records along with the Estate of Michael Jackson decided to release an album of songs that have never been released before. The album, XSCAPE, features eight songs that were recorded between 1983 and 1999.
This is the first song off of his new album and at midnight on May 1, the single will be available on itunes. There is also a bonus version of the song featuring Justin Timberlake.
We thought that maybe Justin would perform the song as well since he posted pic on Instagram of the single’s cover art.

The ultimate music producer L.A. Reid took charge in “contemporizing” tracks that Michael had recorded before his death.
“Michael left behind some musical performances that we take great pride in presenting,” L.A. Reid said in a statement. “Through the vision of music producers that he either worked directly with or expressed strong desire to work with. We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world.”
The album was also produced by Timbaland, also on the album is: Rodney Jerkins (Whitney Houston, Brandy), Stargate (Beyonce, Ne-Yo), Jerome Harmon (Beyonce, Justin Timberlake), and John McClain (Janet Jackson).
