Quincy Jones Says Michael Jackson’s ‘XSCAPE’ Was ‘About Money’
By Shannon Carlin
In an interview with the Canadian public radio station CBC (via Billboard), Jones says that the posthumous MJ album, XSCAPE, which was spearheaded by L.A. Reid and used older unreleased vocal tracks, was a ploy to make some cash.
“They’re trying to make money. And I understand it,” he said. “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, Jone said, “Yeah, but it’s not my business anymore. They’re not our business.”
