Jackson’s estate and Sony Music released a statement about the tracks and insist they were created by the King of Pop.
According to USA Today, “Jackson’s estate and Sony Music withdrew the tracks ‘Breaking News,’ ‘Monster’ and ‘Keep Your Head Up’ — which fans insist use singer Jason Malachi’s vocals and not Jackson’s — from the album ‘as the simplest and best way to move beyond the conversation associated with these tracks once and for all.’
“The album’s remaining tracks remain available,” Jackson’s estate and Sony Music reportedly said in a joint statement. “Nothing should be read into this action concerning the authenticity of the tracks –it is just time to move beyond the distraction surrounding them.”
Still, these removals have not quelled debates but rather intensified them. Check out Jason Malachi, the man whose vocals are at the center of this controversy, below.
