ony released this experiment (Breaking News) on the public
BECAUSE:

- If the public buys that this is Michael Jackson
Then Sony can make as many NEW albums and songs as long as Jason Malachi is alive.

Get the full picture people
This is NOT MJ
This is an experiment to see how deaf and dumb you are and how loose your pockets are.

Boycott the Album and anything Sony or Freaky Japanese.

Michael hardly sings anything on that track. I dunno if the proper version has more of him on it, but that leaked one never had much of his vocals.

@15. Ehmmm.... that's BS.
You can hear Michael very clearly and he sings the most parts of the song.
