Nice sentiment, but it is a little repetitive.

It's an Ok songm nore Akon than MJ. Just compare it to Billie Jean or Human Nature, then ask yourself how good it is, unfortuately MJ passed his prime at least 15 years ago.

Yes, the version of "Hold My Hand" that's on the album will contain more of MJ and less of Akon. Thank goodness.
For the people who are trying to ruin the album by saying it's not Michael Jackson, get a life. It is him. Sony and the Estate both hired a forensic musicologist who tested it, and they both were conclusive that it IS him. Also, numerous people who worked with MJ over the years all said it is him. Sony would be sued if it wasn't really him, and they sold it as him. Come on now.
"Another Day" is a great song, but apparently the Estate has a hand-written note from Michael (before he passed, of course) saying he wanted "Hold My Hand" to be the lead single off of his new album.

LOVE IT !! What a beautiful song. Michael's voice is truly beautiful. This song makes me miss him even more. P.S. TMZ, there are a million GORGEOUS pictures of Michael out there. Why do you insist on using the worst?
