So, the first “official” single from Michael Jackson’s “Michael” (what even constitutes an official or unofficial single these days?) has made it’s debut, and it’s…a song that circulated heavily on the internet three years ago?

“Hold My Hand” is the name of the song, and it’s one of the tracks that MJ worked on with Akon a couple of years ago (you know, back when Akon was hot). The version that leaked a couple years back was unfinished (and truthfully, I don’t remember enough of it to compare that version to this one), so Akon went back in the studio to finish off the song.

Truth is-I want to hate, but it’s not bad. It’s got a pretty melody, and Michael (despite making what amounts to a “featured” appearance on his own song) is in good voice (and I’m fairly confident this time that it’s him singing!). Sounds like a hit.
