Michael Jackson’s now single is out

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, you’ve probably already head that there’s a new Michael Jackson album coming out, simply entitled Michael.  The first single from the album, “Hold My Hand,” is out now, and it’s a pretty catchy tune.  It’s a duet with producer and musician Akon, and they seem to blend well together in this collaboration.

Obviously it’s still not going to hold a candle to Michael’s stellar classics of the ’70s and ’80s, but for a dead guy with a finite amount of chart life left, it’s a pretty decent effort.  And of course the sales will be through the roof as this single flies off the shelves – Michael has such a dedicated fan base that they could put out a recording of him coughing and it would go straight to number one.
