ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: The music video for the first single from Michael Jackson's posthumous album was released Wednesday (May 14). "Love Never Felt So Good," originally written and recorded by Jackson in 1983, is the debut single from "Xscape," which was released Tuesday (May 13) by Epic Records in partnership with Jackson's estate. The song features singer Justin Timberlake, who appears in the video along with archival footage of the late singer. "Xscape" features eight previously unreleased songs from Jackson that were recorded between 1983 and 1999. Since its release on May 2nd, "Love Never Felt So Good" has peaked at position number 20 on the Billboard "Hot 100" singles chart. Jackson, known as the 'King of Pop' and one of the most influential artists in music, having sold 1 billion records worldwide, died in 2009 at age 50 in Los Angeles from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol. The powerful drug was given to him by his personal physician while the performer was rehearsing for a series of 50 comeback concerts in London.
