Akon Won't Release Unfinished Michael Jackson Tracks
'Hold My Hand' was done, but the rest are 'just ideas, concepts, harmonies,' Akon tells MTV News.

By Jocelyn Vena , with reporting by Kelly Marino


Akon's inspirational track with Michael Jackson, "Hold My Hand," was released as the official first single from Jackson's posthumous album, Michael. It is a track that was completely finished before Jackson's death.

However, many of the tracks on the album are pieced-together parts of songs Jackson was working on before his death. Akon told MTV News he has no plans to release any unfinished business he and Jackson worked on.

"I'm definitely excited about our single, because that was finished, complete, and I'm happy with the outcome," Akon explained. "And I know [Jackson] was [happy] 'cause we were there finishing the song together, so I'm really happy about what we accomplished on that record 'Hold My Hand.' "

So, what was the concept Akon and Jackson tried to deliver on the song? "We was trying to find the unity, like what can we possibly translate that can bring the world together?" he remembered. "It was a song I was previously working on that I eventually let [Jackson] hear, and when he heard it, he fell in love with it. ... We clicked instantly when it came to it. That was the main concept: Let's figure out something we can leave behind, in 20,000 years later it can still be relevant."

It's an idea Akon and Jackson thought a lot about and can be found on many of their unfinished songs, not that anyone will ever get the chance to hear them.

"Me and Mike worked on a lot of concepts before he passed. 'Hold My Hand' was one of the records that was actually fully complete; the rest of the records are incomplete. They're just ideas, concepts, harmonies and stuff like that which the world will probably never see 'cause I wouldn't want to put it out unfinished," he explained. "I know at the end of the day if it wasn't fully complete, I don't think he would see it released that way.

"Majority of the concepts we worked on, they were all international, worldwide," he added. "It was always the point of which everyone has to find some kind of relativity in it. That was always a challenge, and we found concepts that would do it. We just never got the chance to finish the songs, but 'Hold My Hand' was a prime example."

Akon - Akon Considers 'Burning' Jackson Tapes
23 November 2010 16:17

                              
AKON has a stash of recordings he made with the late MICHAEL JACKSON, but he's threatened to "burn" the tapes because he doesn't want to release any music which was left "unfinished".

The R&B star's duet with the Thriller hitmaker, Hold My Hand, is set to become the first single from Jackson's upcoming posthumous album Michael.

Akon admits he has plenty of other recordings they made together, but he doesn't want to hang on to them in case he is tempted to rework them - because his idol wouldn't have wanted him to release incomplete tracks.

He tells MTV.com, "Me and Mike worked on a lot of concepts before he passed. Hold My Hand was one of the records that was actually fully complete - the rest of the records are incomplete.

"They're just ideas, concepts, harmonies and stuff like that which the world will probably never see because I wouldn't want to put it out unfinished - so I might just burn it after this interview, 'cos I might just get tempted to do a remix!

"I know at the end of the day if it wasn't fully complete, I don't think he would see it released that way. I probably wouldn't ever put myself in a position to make that choice."

Now see, this is what you get when your head isn't in the hands of Sony...COMMON SENSE! I don't know about burning them though. What about locking them up really really good. You know away from the vultures.

Exactly! I would rather have the tracks locked up away rather than burned forever.
It shouldnt be up to Akon anyway. It should be the decision of the Jackson Family.

Because the songs are unfinished I dont think Akon will release them.  Unless he is broke down the line and then decides to sell them  :laughing:

Unfinished tracks fine, But I really don't get why people have a problem with finished tracks from the vault being put out there. If Michael didn't think they were good enough he wouldn't have registered them or kept them in any facit.

I hope Akon doesn't burn them, I hope he uses them, If they are unfinished, no one is to say they were ever Michael's tracks, Michael may have been the feature artist on the track, so finish it and release it I say haha!
