As Michael Jackson prepares to release his 12th studio album he enlists a little help from the top of the charts, Will.I.Am.
In 2006, Will.I.Am climbed the charts with his own band The Black Eyed Peas but he is slowly getting the recognition he deserves as a producer. This year he has had his hand in producing Justin Timberlake, Fergie, Snoop Dog and Nas. He even picked up a nod for Producer of the Year at the 2006 Grammy's.
Jackson album is set to come out before the year comes to an end. Will.I.Am speculates about Jackson's next effort, "It's either going to be really big or nobody's gonna care. Ain't no middle ground on this one." Well, to make sure this is an album that people care about Jackson isn't only enlisting Will.I.Am's help. Also to appear on the album is Akon and Chris Brown.
