Michael Jackson Penned a Tune For Hanson

At some point in time, Michael Jackson wrote a song for Hanson, according to ShowBiz 411.

The song was written for them to play, not in their honor. Jackson never actually gave the song he wrote for Hanson to them. He intended to send it to the 90s boy band but never did. It must have been stashed away and was eventually forgotten.

You can hear the track, entitled "(I Like) The Way You Love Me" on Michael Jackson's new posthumous album, which comes out tomorrow. The album, Michael, is comprised of some of Jackson's solo tracks, as well as collaborative tracks with Lenny Kravitz, 50 Cent and Akon. Despite some songs sounding like they weren't recorded by MJ himself, I'm really looking forward to the new album.
