Love Never Felt So Good” is a song written by American recording artist Michael Jackson and Canadian singer-songwriter Paul Anka. The official release also features a duet with Justin Timberlake, however there is also – a version with only Michael’s vocals.

First recorded as a demo in 1983, the single was released posthumously on May 2, 2014. The first released version of the song was recorded by Johnny Mathis for his 1984 album, Special Part of Me with new lyrics by Anka and Kathleen Wakefield.

Two reworked versions of Jackson’s 1983 version, produced by American record producers Timbaland, Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon, John McClain, and Dutch record producer Giorgio Tuinfort, form the first single released from Jackson’s second posthumous album, Xscape.

It is the second collaboration between Jackson and Anka to be released since Jackson’s 2009 death (the first being “This Is It“). Timbaland also paid homage to Jackson’s 1979 song “Workin’ Day and Night” by sampling percussion and breaths from the track.

Since its release, “Love Never Felt So Good” has received positive reviews from critics. Surprised by the quality of the song, Aisha Harris from Slate writes that Timberlake’s version “sounds like an outtake from Off The Wall” and further commented: “If producers are going to put out more MJ music, let’s hope it continues to sound this good.”

Lyrics for Michael Jackson & Justin Timberlake – Love Never Felt So Good

Baby, love never felt so good
And I’d die if it ever could
Not like you hold me, hold me
Oh, Baby, love never felt so fine
And I’d die if it’s never mine, not like you hold me, hold me

And the nights gonna be just fine,
Gotta fly, gotta see, got to be
I can’t take it,

Cause baby, everytime I love you, in and out of my life, in out baby,
Tell me, if you really love me it’s in and out my life in out baby
So baby, yes, love never felt so good.

Oh, Baby, love never felt so fine
And I’d die if it ever mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
Baby, love never felt so good
And I’d die if it ever could, not like you hold me, hold me

And the night through the thickest tears
Gotta fly, gotta see, can’t believe
I can’t take it, cause

Baby everytime I love you, it’s in and out my life, in out baby
Tell me, if you really love me, it’s in and out my life driving me crazy
Baby, love never felt so good

And I’d die if you never mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
And I’d die if it ever could, not like you hold me, hold me

Aww baby love never felt so fine,
And I’d die if you’re mine all mine
Not like you hold me, hold me
Aww baby love never felt so good, (soo good)
And I’d die if it ever could
Not like you hold me, hold me,

And the nights that feels good (feels good)
Gotta fly, gotta see, can’t believe
I can’t take it, cause

Baby everytime I love you it’s in and out my life in out baby
Tell me, if you really love me it’s in and out my life driving me crazy
‘Cause baby, love never felt so good

Felt so good aw yeah,

Never felt so good yeah yeah,
Never felt so good uh huh,
Never felt so good,

Alright that’s fine, that’s it…
