Rodney Jerkins to Release New Michael Jackson Album
Fans itching to get more music from the late Michael Jackson may be in for a treat. Super producer Rodney Jerkins revealed that he will release a new album of previously unheard material from the King of Pop. Jerkins, who spoke with VladTV about the album, was mum on an official release date but confirmed that the project would eventualy see the light of day. “You know there is a lot of red tape, but it’s definitely going to happen,” he said.
Jerkins produced several tracks for Jackson, including the 2001 single ‘You Rock My World,’ which went on to become the last big hit single of his career, “I worked with Michael for years,’ Jerkins continued. “It was definitely a goal of mine as a kid. When I first wanted to be producer, at 11 years old, on a Iittle piece of paper [I] was like, ‘One day I wanna work with Michael Jackson.’ I just believe that God granted my wish.”
Aside from working with Jackson, Jerkins remains one of the industry’s biggest producers. He is the man behind hit singles for big names like Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. Currently, Jerkins is working with singer/reality star Ray J on his forthcoming album.
