About this album

“Hold My Hand” is a duet between the American recording artist Michael Jackson and Senegalese-American singer-songwriter Akon taken from Jackson’s first posthumous release, Michael. The song was originally recorded by Akon and Jackson in 2008 and was set to be the first single from Akon’s 2008 album, Freedom. Akon recorded additional vocals for the song in 2010. The song will also be included in Akon’s 2011 album, Living - The Life.A handwritten note from Jackson belonging to his Estate indicated his desire that “Hold My Hand” be the first single on his next project. However, in its unfinished state, the song leaked out in 2008. This would be the last new song leaked during Jackson’s lifetime. Due to the leak, the song was subsequently pulled from Akon’s track listing for his 2008 album, Freedom.

Akon commented, “The world was not ready to hear ‘Hold My Hand’ when it leaked a couple years ago. We were devastated about it. But its time has definitely come; now in its final state, it has become an incredible, beautiful, anthemic song.
