Michael Jackson is dead but his music surely is not.
At midnight Oct. 12, the self-proclaimed king of pop’s latest single, “This Is It” debuted online at michaeljackson.com.
The track is reportedly, one of the best-selling records of all time according to MTV.com —due to Jackson’s untimely death in late June.
The new single came from 1991’s, “Dangerous” album and is, “Jackson in his classic voice, singing in his clear falsetto to finger-snapping,” according to mtv.com.
The chairman of Columbia Music Group, Rob Stringer, said earlier this week the company had more than 100 songs that will probably be released.
“This Is It,” featuring background vocals from Jackson’s brothers will be included on the soundtrack for the documentary also titled, “This Is It.”
The film debuts interviews, rehearsals and backstage concert footage from Jackson’s last series of 50 concerts to be held at O2 Arena in London.
“This Is It” will only be in theaters for two weeks beginning Oct. 28.
Lyrics to “This Is It”
This is it, here I stand,
I’m the light of the world, I feel grand,
Got this love I can feel, and I know, yes, for sure it is real,
And it feels as though I’ve seen your face a thousand times,
And you said you really know me too yourself, and I know that you have got addicted with your eyes,
But you say you gonna live it for yourself,
I never heard a single word about you,
falling in love wasn’t my plan,
I never thought that I would be your lover,
C’mon baby, just understand
This is it, I can say, I’m the light of the world, run away,
We can feel, this is real, every time I’m in love that I feel,
And I feel as though I’ve known you since a thousand years,
And you tell me that you’ve seen my face before,
And you said to me you don’t want me hanging round many times, want to do it here before.
