Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s highly anticipated single, titled ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ will be entering the Billboard Hot 100 list after a couple of days of availability. The latest duet is the lead single from ‘Xscape’, Jackson’s new album which is scheduled to be released on May 13, 2014. The record will be featuring the late King of Pop’s vocals and new music from Rodney Jerkins, Timbaland and J-Roc and others.
The single had its debut on the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1, 2014, after which it became available for digital purchase. The ‘Cry Me A River’ singer did not make an appearance at the ceremony and Usher danced to ‘Love Never Felt So Good’ on the broadcast instead.
Even though the latest track is not available across on-demand subscription services at the moment, it has managed to get 960,000 views on YouTube until now. Jackson’s new single will mark his 49th Hot 100 entry and second following his death in 2009. The late King of Pop’s first single with Akon, titled ‘Hold My Hand’ reached No. 39 when it was released in January 2011.
The posthumous record, titled simply ‘Michael’ had its debut on the Billboard 200 at No. 3 and has managed to sell 540,000 units in the United States. The ‘Beat It’ singer has 13 Hot 100 No. 1s, the most in the solo males category.
