New MJ album ‘disrespectful’ to Michael: Will.i.Am

Will.i.am hits at Sony for profiting out of MJ's unfinished work

Will.i.am hits at Sony for profiting out of MJ's unfinished work

Black Eyed Peas frontman Will.i.am says he wants no part in the new Michael Jackson album because it stands against everything Michael believed in.

“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 honouring,” TMZ.com quoted him as saying.

According to Will.i.am, the biggest issue is using unfinished Michael tracks 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,” he said.

“It’s worth noting … the album is put out by Sony, through Michael’s estate. So Michael’s kids are the ones who stand to make money off this,” he added. (ANI)
