Michael Jackson “Xscape” Album Review



Xscape is the 2nd compilation album of previously unreleased tracks by Pop Legend Michael Jackson released by Epic Records and MJJ Music. It is also the 2nd album of new material that the estate has released in partnership with Sony Music Entertainment since Jackson’s death in late June 2009. Epic Record’s Chairman L.A. Reid executively produced the album and assembled a team of producers which consisted of Timbaland, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Rodney Jerkins, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, and Stargate. The album also includes features from Justin Timberlake, Mary J Blige, Questlove, Jesse Johnson, and D’angelo. Reid said that they wanted to honor Jackson’s legacy when naming the album, “The title of this album honors Michael’s album naming process. He always chose a song from the album to name his projects and, beginning with Thriller, used only one word titles, each with an edgy quality to them such as Bad, Dangerous, HIStory and Invincible. This is true of the new project.”
