No matter what artists come and go, the fact will always remain Michael Jackson is the greatest performer to ever grace the planet. It’s been nearly five years since his death and music fans are still trying to find something or someone to fill his shoes. Well, fans don’t have to look for anyone to fill the King of Pop’s shoes because he is releasing another posthumous album entitled “Xscape” on May 13th.
In preparation for the album drop, Epic Records CEO and album executive producer L.A. Reid released the title track from the MJ album. The song was produced by Rodney Jerkins and it is special that he got to work on this song because he is the only producer on the new album who got a chance to rework production on a song he actually did with Michael. Every other producer on the project only “contemmporized” tracks originally produced by someone else.
Check out the song “Xscape” here. Let us know if you agree that it sounds like it could easily fit on the “Dangerous” album.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
