MICHAEL JACKSON & Justin Timberlake – Love Never Felt So Good

Debuted Friday night during the inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcast, “Love Never Felt So Good” is the first truly new song we are hearing off the forthcoming posthumous Michael Jackson album, Xscape.

It was written, originally recorded, and produced by Jackson and Paul Anka in 1983, around the time they recorded “This Is It.”

The “contemporized” version that you hear below was produced by John McClain, co-executor of the Estate of Michael Jackson, and is “a magic combination of the new and the original production that retains the track’s analog, early 80s feel, while also sounding right at home with the disco-soul inflected music of today,”according to a press release.

Love Never Felt So Good” is accompanied by a duet version with Justin Timberlake, which coincides an Pharrell interview  earlier this week where he revealed that much of the material on Timberlake’s Justified album was originally intended for Michael Jackson.

Both versions of the song are available to purchase on iTunes now, with the full Xscape album due out May 27th via Epic Records.
