Listen To A New Michael Jackson Song Produced By Timbaland

michael-jackson-xscape

Sony Records will be releasing Xscape, a posthumous record from Michael Jackson on May 1. We’ve already been treated to a great new track featuring Justin Timberlake, and today, we can hear “Chicago,” featuring production by Timbaland.

According to the album’s liner notes, the track was recorded around 1999, after Michael heard the song that was written by songwriter Cory Rooney (Mary J. Blige, Destiny’s Child, Mariah Carey). The song was supposed to be included on 2001’s Invincible, but was instead saved for later. Timbaland’s inclusion gives the track a more modern feel, and proves that Michael Jackson is a timeless artist; if MJ was still alive and the track came out today, it’d be a surefire hit.

You can stream the song after the jump.
