New Michael Jackson Album

Looks like Michael Jackson is pulling a Tupac and dropping a new album despite the fact he's been dead for five years. His new album, "Xscape" drops next month and will feature 8 unreleased tracks that have never been heard by the public before. I can't say this is much of a surprise. I'm guessing Jacko has a whole library of unreleased tracks that will leak out over the next few years. However, one track is making people scratch their heads. The song "Do You Know Where Your Children Are?" tells the story of a 12yr. old girl who runs away from home and turns to a life of prostitution. The Mirror was able to get ahold of some of the lyrics and their a little ironic to say the least,
"She wrote that she is tired of stepdaddy using her/Saying that he’ll buy her things, while sexually abusing her."
It's just a little strange for him to be singing about taboo topics like child sex abuse considering he's been accused of the very same thing multiple times in the past. Granted, he's never been charged with anything but still, a little weird. The last time he was accused of sex abuse was back in 2005 and he was cleared of all charges. One of the witnesses that testified on MJ's behalf in 2005 was one of his back up dancers who recently surfaced again and has turned the tables on the Jackson family by claiming that Jackson molested him years ago. A trial for that has been set for June of this year. Producers including Timbaland, Rodney Jerkins, Stargate, Jerome "Jroc" Harmon, and John McClain have "contemporised" material for the release, and a deluxe edition of the record will include a selection of the recordings in their original form.
