Michael Jackson – Xscape Lyrics & Tracklist

English 357 May 13, 2014

Xscape is a posthumous album by Michael Jackson, the renowned American singer-songwriter, released on May 9, 2014, by Epic Records, MJJ Music, and Sony Music Entertainment.

The album was the tenth release by Sony and/or Motown since Jackson's tragic death in 2009, and it was curated by L.A. Reid, the chairman of Epic Records, who also served as the executive producer for the album. Reid enlisted the services of a talented team of record producers, including Timbaland, Jerome "J-Roc" Harmon, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, and John McClain, to remix and contemporize the eight selected tracks.

Xscape featured previously unreleased tracks from Jackson's recording vaults, and the album was an instant commercial success. It debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and topped the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in the United States. In its first week of release, the album was #1 in worldwide sales, a testament to Jackson's enduring popularity and influence.

The lead single from the album, "Love Never Felt So Good," was a collaboration with Justin Timberlake and included a newly recorded version of the song. It climbed to number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, marking Jackson's first posthumous top ten hit and his first since "You Rock My World" in 2001. Moreover, "Love Never Felt So Good" became Jackson's highest charting single on the Hot 100 since his final number one, "You Are Not Alone," in 1995.

A second single, "A Place with No Name," was released later in the year. The album received positive reviews from critics, and it was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Xscape showcased Jackson's remarkable talent as a songwriter and performer and reminded fans of his enduring legacy in the music industry.
