This was the first song from the album to be promoted and it led to some questioning whether it really is Michael singing. LaToya Jackson, for instance questioned whether the voice is really her brother's, telling TMZ
, "I listened to it... It doesn't sound like him."
However, Teddy Riley, who worked with Michael on his later albums, said he had the family's support on the production of the album. "I did what Michael would expect of me with the tools I had to work with (vocal tracks of Michael). This is his legacy," he said. "Let it live."
Michael's former manager Frank Dileo also vouched for the song's authenticity. "I spoke to Michael by telephone at the Cascios' home studio several times while he was recording with them, and he was excited and enthused by the music and the experience," Dileo said in a statement. "While listening to the tracks, especially the ones not heard by the general public, you can hear that he was having a great time!"
