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.

Fun. Now WAR between all the players:

Estate
expert voice authenticators
Teddy Riley
Jason Malachi
Facebook (authentication that it's Malachi's account, let alone authenticate the authenticators ... on, and on, and on)
Alexander Giles (face off with Malachi, that HE sounds more like MJ and it was HIM that was on those tracks..lol)
All OTHER impersonators
Every J clan member, including PPB hearsay on what they believe
The Cascios

That's just to name a few...

IN THE MEANTIME, has the Estate officially shut KJ down on her Secret Contract with Mann (exploit MJ and PPB)?? If not, taking a mighty SUSPICIOUSLY LONG time. We know the Estate sent a letter of threat... which Mann pretty much gave the finger too... and, that's about it. HAS IT BEEN SHUT DOWN. If not, then WHY not. Oh... been busy with the Alejandra clusterf*ck, right. Jerm held hostage (omg, lol, plz) in Africa...

Now, JJ, with his upcoming MJ fragrance line. If I hadn't read the 'secret contract' with KJ/Mann, myself then THIS new exploitation of MJ for $$$, of Joe's, it would have felt mighty safe to assume that JJ had signed on the same line as she.

SO TMZ... **yawn** .... all these "credible sources" that only YOU are privy too (lol) ... well, MOVE IT. Get JJ's "secret contract" up here ... what?

Waiting with baited breath for the next article that will be saying that the Estate couldn't be reached for comment concerning either JJ's new MJ fragrance line, OR about FACEBOOK authentication processes. LOL

Sony comes first, don'cha know. ;o) ALWAYS.

I am a MJ fan and have been over 25 years.
MJ's OWN family said that some songs were not Micheal.

Being a FAN I want to hate this guy for trying to take MJ from me or for trying to use MJ. I hate it. But being honest he is very good. He is not MJ BUT he is good. He has to make a living like everyone else. Look at all the Elvis guys out there and they make money and people enjoy it. To me it is to soon. BUT he could be one of MJ's biggest fans and that is what made him want to sing like him.

My BEEF is it is just to soon even though MJ has had impersonators for a long time. This guy doesn't dress and try to look like him but he almost I mean almost could fool many. If you close your eyes and picture MJ you could almost believe it was MJ singing it. Every one has an opinion and this is mine. No matter what you think don't knock on others opinions.

His own family didn't believe all the songs were his either.

He will probably come out and deny it now. But all you need to do is listen to the comparisons and it will become clear that it's Jason Malaci and NOT Michael Jackson on those 3 Cascio tracks from the album. We have all been lied to.

Ok firstly,

1) Jason Malachi is a ****ing fail... it aint him on the album its just a publicity stunt cos his a nobody.

2) The dumb arse MJ fans who are 'friends' with him on Facebook are ****s, why would you want to follow someone who just backstabbed MJ and uses MJ's name for his own gain.

3) IT AINT JASON MALACHI... 9 MORE MICHAEL ALBUM ARE GOING TO BE RELEASED... IF IT WAS MALACHI HE WOULDN'T BE CONFESSING IF HE WERE CONTRACTED OR IN THE SPOTLIGHT TO FAKE MORE SONGS.

4) Your dumb if you believe this fake, talentless piece of ****.

Oh, and the only reason this ****head knows how to sing is because MJ tought him everything he knows when he were younger.

And now that MJ aint around to stand up for himself this piece of trash can step in and manipulate all you fans.

Jason Malachi is just another backstabbing ba$tard that MJ had in his life.
