NE-YO is refusing to listen to the posthumous Michael Jackson album - because he's adamant if the King of Pop was still alive he wouldn't have released the tracks.
Michael, which features previously unheard Jackson material including a collaboration with Ne-Yo, hit music retailers last week (begs13Dec10), but its release has not been without controversy.
The singer's longtime producer Quincy Jones blasted record bosses at Sony for allowing the perfectionist's unfinished songs to be heard by the public, while members of the Jackson family have raised concerns about the authenticity of the vocals.
Now Ne-Yo has spoken out to explain his boycott of the record, insisting he's not interested in listening to it.
He tells TMZ.com, "If Michael was still alive... I don't think the album would be out yet... I'm gonna stick to my old Mike."

Any MJ is better than no MJ. MJ himself released some "practice" tapes on some of his albums. They are great and so was he. Your loss Ne Yo. Miss you more and more each day MJ!

Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm totally aware that Michael isn't here to give the album his blessing, however, anything Michael had in the pipeline re his music - to keep it locked away, even if it's not entirely finished is criminal to me. His talent exceeds everyone in music today and to not be given the chance to hear what he had in mind before his untimely death would be a tragedy. I love his new album! It may not be completed to MJ's liking and I know what a perfectionist he was, but I can't stop playing the tracks on 'Michael'! Just to hear new music from him makes me feel like he hasn't really left us. Its like a warm blanket being thrown around me when I listen to it. I particularly love "Hollywood Tonight" and "Keep your head up" is beautiful! I would like to think Michael does approve of his music being released, for us all to hear once again what a genius he was! Will love him forever.

I understand Ne Yo. As an artist, you don't want to let go of your project unless you know you've given it all you had to give. But with Michael, surely there are hundreds of songs he's written, sang and we'll never get to hear. On the other hand, I also understand the position of a die hard fan. Julie said it best,'it's like a warm blancket being thrown around you'. What profound words because all Michael wanted to do was love people and show us - like Jesus - how to love the earth and each other. So what is not finished is our jobs now. It's not about the music, but rather what's in it. Continue his legacy and love and edify and stop attaching each other. Really, this kind of behavior was formulated into his early death - not just the drugs!

I agree with mjlove1981 & JulieBrit84 I love his new songs no matter if they were finish or not as long as they are from Michael's sweet voice that's the only thing that matters to me. I feel the same way mjlove1981 WHAT WOMAN would be STUPID TO WANT ANOTHER MAN!! To have some man that really knows what TRUE LOVE IS WOULD BE A BLESSING!!, because they are hard to find, MJ knew what TRUE LOVE was all about. I have always since I was a little girl dreamed when I got older to have a husband that would truly LOVE ME. I LOVE YOU MUCH MORE MJ!

I admire NEYO for doing this, although I have bought the album and it's great. I have also come to the conclusion that this album is completely authentic! :) I think that by releasing these records on CD only helps to extend Michael's legacy. Also, I already owned three songs off of this album, eventually I would have had them all, so either way.. these WONDERFUL tracks would have been listened to by his loving fans anyway. I'm sorry Michael if these songs were not completed to your standard, but I love them..and I love you. :') x
