TITLE: “Hold My Hand (feat. Michael Jackson)”
WEB DEBUT: June 29, 2008

ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: Girl, you’re lonely and you think nobody understands your pain. But you’re wrong. Akon understands. And Michael Jackson? He understands too. So just take their hands and let them fly you away from all this misery. For if there’s one place you’ll be happy, it’s resting safely with Akon and Michael Jackson on the serene island paradise that is this sweet, forgettable “Don’t Matter”-esque ballad. And once R. Kelly gets a whiff of the track, I’m sure he’ll come diving into the hot tub on the remix. (“Hold my hand toooo!”) Darius Rucker will probably have to wait for the mash-up.

WHERE TO FIND IT: All over YouTube.

    So am I to assume the credits on this track flipped from “Michael Jackson feat. Akon” to “Akon feat. Michael Jackson” once any hope of a coherent MJ comeback album ran out?
