Music Geek Track of the Day: “Love Never Felt So Good” by Michael Jackson

“Love Never Felt So Good” is the first single off Michael Jackson’s second posthumous album, Xscape, and ohhhhh my goooddd does it sound amazing. As soon as I heard this, my instinctive thought was, “When is the wedding/Bar Mitzvah/quinceañera I am invited to? Cause I need to groove so hard.”

I am always very wary of posthumous releases for all the obvious reasons of creative discontinuity and the issue of potentially tarnishing an artist’s legacy, and that especially applied in this case. But almost instantly (that sting intro!!) I had a heady surge that brought me back to hearing Off The Wall for the first time and knowing just how purely good that sound was. This track could very well be essential Michael Jackson, and I am so happy that I get to write about this guy today.

Also check out the version of “Love Never Felt So Good” with Justin Timberlake!

Michael Jackson’s ‘Xscape’ drops May 13th via Epic and MJJ.

    The track is a rehash of old & too well known songs. It has no soul, the Justin Timberlake remix aswell. Once heard, already forgotten. MJ is dead. This song won’t bring him back

    I couldn’t get that video to work for me, it said I was in the wrong country. This one worked though! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wnuTGGuAVs
