There were supposed to be nine new songs of Michael Jackson, never previously released.

But a fan sued. He claimed that in three of the songs, the vocals were not Michael Jackson at all, they were fake vocals from a studio session vocalist.

Sony has removed the tracks, but says it only did so to maintain focus on the projects to remember Michael Jackson.

“The official story is that Jackson wrote and recorded them with the production team Edward Cascio and James Porte in 2007. Yet rumours persisted that the vocals were provided by an American singer called Jason Malachi, who apparently took credit for them in a 2011 Facebook post. (His manager later denied this, claiming the post was faked.)”
