Nearly four months after he moonwalked off to the Neverland in the sky, Michael Jackson has a new single out called “This Is It.” No, this is not a cover of Huey Lewis’ “If This Is It.” I wish.
The song was originally written in the olden times (aka the 90s), but never officially released. It will be part of a 2-disc CD set, and it will also play at the end of the Michael Jackson documentary called “This Is It” (DUH). The documentary opens on October 28th.
All of MJ’s brothers sang background on the single. If you listen carefully, you can almost hear Joe Jackson using his abacus (he’s old school like that) to calculate all the cash he’s going to make off this song. And if you play the song backwards, the secret to Jermaine Jackson’s hairline will be revealed. That tip is courtesy of Det. La Toya.
