Akon ft. Michael Jackson - Hold My Hand

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Akon
Featuring:
Producer:
Akon
Album:
TBD

Several months ago, Akon revealed that he had been in and out of the studio with none other than the King of Pop (sit down, Justin).  He also explained that in addition to working on Jackson’s forthcoming studio album, MJ would also appear on the first single off the forthcoming Acquitted.  Despite receiving no official confirmation from any of Akon’s three labels (many of whom seemingly take Monday off of work), it appears that the first single might actually be upon us.  On Hold My Hand, Kon and Michael weave in and out of harmony over a melodic piano-synthesizer, eerily similar to the opening melody of Vitamin C’s classic (if that word could be applied here), The Graduation Song.  Keep it locked to DJBooth for more information on this epic collaboration.

Note:  The streaming of “Hold My Hand” has temporarily been suspended.
