The king of pop continues to sing on long after his death.
Michael Durham Prince, a sound engineer was doing a clean-up of his computer and hard drive when he discovered track after track sung by Michael Jackson in their raw, uncompleted form. There were 20 tracks in total, but the Frenchman who was Michael Jackson’s sound engineer from 1995 to the time of his death said “I don’t have the right to write the song titles or to let people hear them for the moment,”
This is because Sony had a $200-million contract in place as at the time of the superstar’s death and his works, including posthumous, belongs to them.
Prince explains that Jackson had sung the verses but had not recorded the choruses to the songs, so “someone would have to be found” to perform them whenever they did get released, if Sony and Jackson’s family gave the go-ahead. “That would mean duets,” he said.
Go ‘head, Sony! Give us more Jackson goodness! What do these children of nowadays know? They’ll be istening to Justin Bieber and they won’t let us hear word!
