Quincy Jones thinks Michael Jackson's posthumous Xscape is "about money".
Quincy Jones made a very blunt and direct assessment on the latest posthumous Michael Jackson album Xscape saying: "It's about money."
The music legend and record producer's comments come to light after a broadcast interview on Tuesday on Jian Ghomeshi's "Q" talk show on CBC Radio.
The 81-year-old, who had an astounding 71 Grammy nominations in his six decades in the entertainment industry, was also the mastermind behind many of MJ's top hits.
Although, one thing seems clear. He's just not a fan of the latest production.
He said: "They're trying to make money. And I understand it. Everybody's after money - the estate, the lawyers. It's about money."
The L.A. Reid-helmed Xscape has not only been soaring its way in the sales charts around the world since its release but opened at No. 1 on the Official U.K Albums chart this week and is charging toward the top spot on the Billboard 200.
