“If Michael was still alive I would have been even happier with this album. Because I would be getting the actual vocals right there. I had to deal with what I had. I kind of got scrutinized for some of the things I said about this album. I want people to know that it’s not that I didn’t believe it was Michael’s voice on those songs. I just know what I was trying to bring to that project. ‘Hollywood Tonight’ really signified making Michael upbeat and funky again. When I did that song, I really felt Michael the most. I felt Michael the most on that track because it was like I was holding back tears and holding onto my heart all at the same time. When I heard Michael singing on that song it got me very emotional.
I felt the same way when I heard Michael singing on those two Neff-U songs (‘(I Like) The Way You Love Me’ and ‘Best of Joy’).’ Those songs made me feel like Michael was in the room with me. Talking about Michael at this day and time is really bringing back so many memories…things that make me wish he was still here. At one point when I was working on that last Michael album I couldn’t move forward. I couldn’t do what I wanted to do because he wasn’t there with me. But I had to complete it as if he was there. It was always about Michael’s legacy.”
