If there’s one thing people might regret a lot, It’s the death of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. Who knows what kind of songs he would have released today if he was alive? And of course, the first thing people were looking for when he passed away was if he recorded one last song or if some unreleased songs could make a new album.
It already happened with the posthumous album called ‘Xpace’ and its famous song ‘Love Never Felt So Good” in collaboration with Justin Timberlake, which was a remix of a 1983 demo. Of course, Justin Timberlake was added after because he was born in 1981, but it made the song even better. However, after that, nothing happened. But who knew that 9 years later, we would hear new demos and unreleased songs from the King of Pop? More than that, who knew we would see new sequences in the studio from him? Well, that’s exactly what happened a few days ago.
A Hard Disk Stolen In Belgium
Brad Sundberg, Michael Jackson’s historic collaborator, was traveling to Bruxelles, Belgium, for a seminar. In these seminars, he tells about his experiences while working with MJ. But suddenly, he looked inside his bag and found out a hard disk and a computer with a lot of exclusive content about the King of Pop has disappeared.
He declared: “A really difficult day in the studio as we were the victims of what appears to be a targeted theft of one of my laptops. We are working with Brussels police and doing all we can to retrieve my material. The entire event is backed up so we will be returning in full force tomorrow”.
He added: “[…] There’s some really cool material they’re now in possession of and for all I know it’s going to be offered for sale, uploaded, who knows.” He ends up with: “I, along with my family and friends, greatly appreciate your prayers, love, friendship, and support as we deal with this challenging situation head-on.”

As we can see, Brad seems very disappointed and sad about this hard disk being stolen. It seems like these disks were unique and that he will never be able to retrieve them. Worse than that, these personal files that he was keeping for himself and that were never supposed to be shown to the public will be released online. Many fans online were angry about this situation: “Empty, bad and characterless people. They cannot be treated like fans or ordinary people. They are criminals! I’ll not share any links to this. Stay well and strong Brad.”
And guess what, after only a few hours, some content started to leak, and even If It’s bad to look at it, what was inside is pure gold for Michael Jackson’s fans.
Studio Recordings And Meetings With Michael Jackson
The first interesting leak is that extraordinary meeting between Michael Jackson and the boy who provides the voice in a part of the ‘Stranger in Moscow’ song. Of course, the little boy is Russian and Michael Jackson tells him how to yell at him from a distance. The young boy’s father is also there to look at the scene and helps his son.
At the end of the sequence, after a few trials, the boy does exactly what Michael Jackson wanted. The boy is talented for sure, but the most amazing thing about this sequence is how Michael Jackson explains what he wants, and how encouraging he is with his young talent.
The second sequence is a leak of the track list preparation for the famous ‘Dangerous’ album. In this sequence, Michael Jackson has fun with a new Mickey Mouse watch that tells him the time out loud. Everybody in the room thinks It’s funny until Michael Jackson puts everyone back to work.
They put different papers on the table and place all of them in order to find out with what song they are going to start the album. What’s interesting is how they study the order to cause the listener as many emotions as possible. This is interesting since this is kind of a mind manipulation by the music that they’re doing. In the end, Michael Jackson gets too much into it and starts singing one of the songs from the album. This really shows how “possessed” he was by his own music.
The last relevant leak is the studio recording of ‘Can’t Let Her Get Away’ where Michael Jackson records the song in front of the camera. But Michael Jackson is not really singing in this video, His producer and are working on the rhythm, the pace, and the music itself.
Michael Jackson and his producer trying to find the perfect sound while Michael is dancing to it. But there’s nothing more to tell about this sequence. We advise you to look at them quickly because Brad wants to delete all of them. And that’s normal because these were not supposed to be released in public. However, It is one of the most interesting things we have ever seen about Michael Jackson, because those are not sequences chosen to be in a documentary, these are private shots in the studio that show us how it was going with MJ’s team, and that’s amazing.
