Can We Talk?: MJ's Dropping New Music and I'm Not Ready- Toya

Y'all. I'm not ready.

Let me just go on record and say that my love for Michael Jackson has always run deep. Truth be told, there but by the grace of God and my extreme hatred of LA traffic, I would have been one of Mike's jump offs (make out wise ONLY) that  I've read about on a few occasions.  Don't act like you don't have some celebrity exceptions too now. With that being said, this whole new music thing is too soon. I don't know if it will never not be too soon either.

I JUUUUUUUST got to the point where I can listen to "Little" Michael Jackson. You know "Got To Be There" Michael Jackson?  "Looking Through the Windows" Michael Jackson?  But this new stuff is sending me on a fast train to my feelings and I can't deal. I mean I haven't made it through one song yet. For instance, Soulbounce has the Timbaland reworked song "Chicago" here that I just tried to listen to and I made it only about 10 seconds in.  I just miss him so much.

And then of course there is the duet with Justin Timberlake "Love Never Felt So Good" that hit last week.

I just...I can't.  His vocals come in and my heart just breaks all over again. I'm like that Michael Myers character on SNL back in the day that used to say stuff like "I'm verklempt. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic." I am SO verklempt!  Here, I'll give you all a topic: Out of all of the Jackson siblings, why did Rebbie Jackson's one-hit wonder "Centipede" outbeast every last one of their singles?

Seriously y'all. It may be ages before I listen to this new record. Are you still a little tender when it comes to MJ or are you excited and ready for the new music dropping this Tuesday?  What have you thought about the new music you've heard off of the record so far?

I LOOOOVE MJ. I must say that I have mixed emotions about the new MJ album. When I first heard about it, I was like no way, uh uh. But then I heard the MJ/JT song and was blown away. I feel both happy and sad when I listen to it but that song is musical genius. It just feels right like they were actually in the studio together. I also like the Darkchild produced Xscape but did not like that Blue Gangsta song. My one concern is that I know what a perfectionist MJ was and I wonder if he truly wanted these songs released. But diehard MJ fan in me is excited for some new songs by him. Hopefully this doesn't turn into what happened with Tupac and they just keep digging up any demo that he ever recorded for release. I know that MJ would not be ok with that.
