Jam of the Week: "Love Never Felt So Good" by Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake

It always feels a bit iffy when record labels release an artist's music posthumously. How can we possibly accept material that the singer deemed subpar or incomplete when they're no longer around to have a say?

Thankfully, Michael Jackson's "Love Never Felt So Good" feels like the kind of song he would have released himself. Originally recorded in 1983, the remastered track was released this month as a duet with Justin Timberlake.

The disco jam perfectly frames both Michael and Justin's musical styles, and the song feels like a passing of the baton from the former King of Pop to the current.
