Will.i.Am Says New Michael Jackson Album Is “Disrespectful” To Michael

Michael Jackson Album

Black Eyed Peas founder and producer extraordinaire Will.i.Am says he wants no part in the new Michael Jackson album because it stands against everything Michael believed in.

Will.i.am told EW:

“Whoever put it out and is profiting off of it, I want to see how cold they are … He just wasn’t any ordinary artist. He was a hands-on person. To me it’s disrespectful. There’s no honoring.”

According to Will.i.Am the biggest issue is using unfinished Michael Songs on the album:

“Michael Jackson songs are finished when Michael says they’re finished … Maybe if I never worked with him I wouldn’t have this perspective. He was very particular about how he wanted his vocals, the reverb he used … he was that hands-on.”

While it’s true that money will be made, the Michael Jackson estate, namely his children are the one’s to most profit off the album, so I call this one a toss up, after all I’m sure he would want what’s best for his children.
