MJ Soundalike -- I Sang Songs on New 'Michael' Album

1/16/2011 12:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A guy who once fooled the public into thinking a song of his was really sung by Michael Jackson is claiming he sang a few of the songs on the new "Michael" album  ... and not MJ.

Back in 2007, a song called "Mamacita" made the rounds ... with people thinking it was a new MJ track. Turned out it was done by a guy named Jason Malachi, who sounded just like the King of Pop.

Today, Malachi took to his Facebook page and made this claim:

"Sheesh guys, I guess it's time to confess. I've lied to many people, including someone today, but.... It was me. It was me who sang Breaking News, Keep Your Head Up, Monster and Stay.

"I had a agreement with the record company, but now the cat is out of the bag. Sorry to all my fans, and fellow Michael Jackson fans."

Check out Jason's most recent work below ... gotta admit, kinda MJ-esque.



Calls to Sony have not yet been returned.

His knowledge of words is better than the knowledge at TMZ. He used "sang" correctly, and TMZ used "sung" (shudder) instead. The past tense of sing is sang.

Either way this plays out we will find out the truth once and for all.

1). if it was really Michael on the cd Jason will be sued by the estate for saying this.

2). if it was really jason on the cd Jason will still be sued for breach of contract.

And also for saying Michael was a cheat on this cd is utterly ridiciulous. If this really is Jason on the cd impersonating Michael than that blames lies on Sony not Michael. He is not here anymore to have part in it. He is gone unfortunately.

You're an idiot. How will Malachi be sued for telling the truth. He can only be sued if there was a confidentiality agreement. If there wasnt he cant be sued. SONY, and MJ estate will be sued for false advertising and misrepresentation. That def. screws this album from getting any grammys noms at all. SMH.

This has been the theory amongst fans for some time. The vibrato on Jason Malachi's voice is exactly the same as on those tracks on the album. Even if this turns out to be fake, I'm totally convinced that Jason Malachi has sung on these songs. Check out youtube for some comparison videos!
