Hear a New Michael Jackson Song, ‘Love Never Felt So Good’

Unlike the old Michael Jackson song that quite a bit of the internet (including this very site!) mistook for a new Michael Jackson song, "Love Never Felt So Good" is indeed a truly new MJ track. It premiered on last night's iHeartRadio Music Awards and was written with Paul Anka in 1983, and further "contemporized" for its 2014 release. It's also the first single off Jackson's posthumous Xscape album, and features production work from Timbaland Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, and Jackson estate co-executor John McClain. The disco-tinged Pharrell sound we're all so fond of hearing right now? Well, MJ did it best.
