(Newser) – Michael Jackson plotted his comeback album with Will.i.am, and the Black Eyed Peas frontman now tells the Mirror it was going to be “something Michael has never done before—a dance music album.” The King of Pop kept the demos “under lock and key,” but Will.i.am heard them. “It was going to be out of this world," he said.

“He was a perfectionist and didn't want anyone to hear it until it was ready,” he continued, adding that Jackson’s choreographer recently “came over and told me Michael wanted to get the Peas to open his gigs at the O2. Man, that would have been so amazing. Imagine us together on stage. Awesome.” (Read more Will.i.am stories.)
