A snippet from the King of Pop’s upcoming posthumous album debuted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards last night, May 1, and we really liked what we heard. Thankfully, the full version has dropped today, and it’s got us tapping our feet as much as “Rock With You” or “Beat It.” Read on to listen!
Michael Jackson may be gone, but his music is timeless. Thankfully, more of that music is yet to come from the late pop star. A snippet of his newest single, “Love Never Felt So Good,” premiered at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1, and the full version has arrived a day later!
Michael Jackson’s ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ Released
Over four years after Michael’s tragic death, a new song from the musical genius debuted at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1. With help from Usher, Michael’s “Love Never Felt So Good” rocked the ceremony and gave fans a taste of what’s to come from his posthumous album, Xscape, which is set to drop on May 13.
The song was originally recorded in 1983 and definitely has a signature 80s beat. Music producers like L.A. Reid took previously recorded songs from the King of Pop and readied them for a modern debut. The full version of “Love Never Felt So Good” is a classic Michael tune, with a contemporary edge and we love it! A bonus version of the song, featuring Justin Timberlake, is also available for listening.
