Michael Jackson's new single: Is that really him singing? Take our poll

Those rumors heated up today with the release of “Breaking News,” the first single from the album.

Some fans are convinced that the lead vocals on “Breaking News,” particularly during the verses, don’t sound enough like the late legend they remember. Others feel that perhaps Jackson was just using a different vocal timbre than usual.

Jackson’s label has acknowledged that at least some of the tracks on Michael were brought to completion after his death last year. Beyond that, specifics on these recording sessions are hard to come by, so it’s an open question for now.

Visit Jackson’s official site to hear “Breaking News” if you haven’t already, then hit the jump to vote in our poll: Is that really Michael Jackson singing or not?
