Michael Jackson Gets Fierce and Sultry on 'Blue Gangsta,' 'Loving You'

Two more Michael Jackson tracks, "Blue Gangsta" and "Loving You," from the King of Pop's upcoming posthumous album, Xscape, have hit the web (via MTV and Idolator), both of which you can take a listen to below.

The harrowing, hard-hitting "Blue Gangsta" features a fiery vocal performance from Jackson, as well as updated production from Timbaland, who gives the track his signature futuristic spin, complete with snap-back snares, eerie low-end synths, blaring horns and striking strings.

Timbaland also worked on "Loving You," along with producer J-Roc, providing a sultry, upbeat funk groove for Jackson's devotional, soulful vocals to playfully sail over. The track was initially written, produced and recorded by Jackson in 1987 during the sessions for Bad.

"Loving You" and "Blue Gangsta" follow up a handful of other tracks from Xscape, including the bitter "Chicago," and the Justin Timberlake-assisted "Love Never Felt So Good."

Xscape was put together by executive producer Antonio "L.A." Reid, who scoured Jackson's archives for old vocal tracks that he then turned over to producers to give them a contemporary spin. Timbaland served as the album's lead producer, though Xscape also features work from Rodney Jerkins, Stargate and John McClain. Due out May 13th, the deluxe edition of Xscape will feature the "contemporized" songs as well as the tracks in their original form.

I had heard Blue Gangsta a few years back when it was leaked (and honestly it is in my top 10 MJ songs easily- I really hope it isn't messed up by autotunny crap), but I just found this vid on the website this article came from with the audio from "Loving You". Just saying this is a bit of a floodgates warning- at least for me. I've been so busy and haven't actually sat down and listened to his music for going on a couple months now so this hit me like an effing ton of bricks. I feel so guilty and I definitely need to listen more often than I do because it is really healing. So anyway enjoy everyone! Miss you lots Michael.
