It’s been five years since Michael Jackson passed, but that doesn’t mean he’s not still the King of Pop music … not even close! And his new album Xscape, dropping May 13th, is about to prove it!
So just how can a new album be released by the late and great Michael Jackson?
ET has the inside details behind the making of Xscape, and a sit down interview with the album’s producer L.A. Reid. Aside from producing the record, the former X-Factor judge also named the album and revealed to us why he chose the title.
“I listened to Michael having a conversation in This Is It,” he said. “He was doing a prayer with his team on This is It as they were about to embark on that tour, and he said to them, ‘It's about escape-ism.’”
Not only is a new album dropping, but it was also just announced that Michael will be making some kind of an appearance May 18th at the Billboard Music Awards on ABC.
