Quincy Jones Thinks New Michael Jackson Album Is About Money
"They're trying to make money. And I understand it," the acclaimed producer told the radio station. "Everybody's after money, the estate, the lawyers. It's about money."
When asked if it bothered him that they were planning to continue to release older recordings, Jones said, "Yeah, but it's not my business anymore. They're not our business."
Last October, Jones filed a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court in connection with Jackson's projects released after the singer's death in 2009. In his complaint, Jones said that master recordings he worked on were "wrongfully edited and remixed" to deprive him of profits. In the court papers, Jones also says that he has been denied credit for his work on the late singer's releases and that MJJ Productions and Sony Music have entered into side deals taking profits that should have been included in the calculation of royalties.
Jones isn't the only one who believes this posthumous album was orchestrated to make a little dough. Read those harsh comments here.
