Contributed anonymously: From MJNEWSONLINE.COM: It seems that the information about Michael’s new album is all over the net by now. But is it really info, or just a big hoax?
The whole thing started on the official Michael Jackson website’s chat room. A person named Xscape entered the room assuming the identity of someone who works at/for MJJ Productions. This is not an unusual occurrence in the room, many people come in the room assuming many identities, from movie stars, to Michael Jackson himself.
So called, ‘information’ was released by this one person about a new Michael Jackson album named, ‘Force’.
The production and track information seems to have evolved over time. There is supposed to be 17 tracks on the album, with the Producers: Teddy Riley, Irv Gotti and Quincey Jones. It is also claimed that Michael will do a worldwide tour later this year. Apparently, promotion will begin for the album in April or May. Michael is also supposed to release a new movie, ‘like Moonwalker, but better.’
