As announced Michael Jackson’s new single “Hold My Hand” – a duet with Akon – has arrived today on his official website today. The song has emerged on the internet two years ago but has been removed shortly after its appearance. Honoring today’s presentation of the first official single from Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Michael which will be released December 14th, Akon gave a short but clear press statement. Read and listen below.
“The world was not ready to hear ‘Hold My Hand’ when it leaked a couple years ago. We were devastated about it. But it’s 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.”
