And it’s not really a new song. Or something you’ve never heard before. Akon and MJ recorded “Hold My Hand” back in 2007, and an unfinished version of it leaked right after. But Akon says the world is more ready for it now.
“The world was not ready to hear Hold My Hand when it leaked a couple years ago. We were devastated about it, but its time has definitely come. Now in its final state, it has become an incredible, beautiful, anthemic song. I’m so proud to have had the chance to work with Michael, one of my all time idols.”
Hold My Hand
Do you think this lives up to Michael’s legacy? Or was Will.I.Am right about the whole concept being disrespectful?
