I can't wait the MJ new album. I knew the song and I know how much Akon cared and respected Michael. I wanted so much that the new song be released on the new album. Also the colaboration with Lenny Kravitz. Good job for Michael and also for his colaboraters.

Have loved this song since the first time I heard it when it leaked out. Think this one will be a hit and even with all of the controversy with the new cd, i believe the cd will be a great hit also. New music from the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And his music still lives on.

I remember listening to Akon crank call Michael Jackson around 2007. TMZ played it #hilarious

It wasn't Akon who cranked called MJ...it was some douchey a-hole DJ who was pretending to be Akon.

I love this song and it is unmistakable MJ in this. I think Another Day should have been the first single though.

Love and miss you forever MJ.

If you don't feel good about buying the new MJ cd then don't.I will buy it.But I don't blame people who do not want to buy it because it feels like Sony is exploiting Michael Jackson's legacy and making a lot of profit doing that.
