With the debut of the official first single "Love Never Felt So Good," last week at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, the rollout of Michael Jackson’s posthumous album Xscape is officially underway, and today another track called “Chicago” (a.k.a. “She Was Lovin’ Me”) from the set has graced the internet via Sony as a part their album preview.
The song, which is about unknowingly falling for a taken woman, was one of many scrapped from the recording process of the King of Pop's 2001 album Invisible. According to the album’s liner notes, Jackson loved the demo sent to him by songwriter Cory Rooney, and he recorded the tune at The Hit Factory in New York City in 1999. However, this version features production from Timbaland, which effectively fits the Michael Jackson sound if he were to be working with the hit producer in 2014. We think MJ would approve!
Xscape arrives on May 13 in the U.S.
