Footage of Michael Jackson is edited into new shots of fans he has inspired as well as his “Hold My Hand” collaborator Akon in the song’s music video. A short preview of the clip has been posted to MJ’s official YouTube page, and while we’re reserving any judgment till the full thing arrives, it looks like the vid is at least aiming to be as sunny as the anthem-like tune itself. Watch below.
“Hold My Hand” is the first single off Jackson’s upcoming posthumous album Michael (out December 14). Akon co-wrote and co-produced the song.
If this tease of the “Hold My Hand” video doesn’t have you eager to check out Michael upon its release next week, maybe album track “(I Like) The Way You Love Me” and its feel-good, old-school vibe will win you over?
