Michael Jackson had completed secret album of dance music
Michael Jackson and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas had completed work on a new album of material shortly before the singer's death, the U.K.'s Mirror is reporting.
“It was going to be out of this world. It’s something Michael has never done before – a dance music album," Will.i.am told the Mirror in a story appearing online today. "I was very proud of it. But he was very protective and kept it under lock and key."
