Michael Jackson’s ‘Xscape’ LP Will Contain A Song About Child Abuse & High-Profile Collabs

Michael Jackson‘s posthumous Xscape LP (due May 13) has been shrouded in mystery but details about the much-anticipated project are finally starting to emerge. For starters, the collection of freshly overhauled unreleased material reportedly includes a song about a child prostitute called “Do You Know Where Your Children Are?”

A demo of that song leaked way back in 2010 and contains the disturbing lyric “she is tired of step-daddy using her, saying that he’ll buy her things while sexually abusing her”. In other Xscape news, (former member of The Time) Jesse Johnson revealed that a track he worked on features Mary J. Blige, Questlove and D’Angelo. Pretty impressive line-up!
