Michael Jackson's New Album To Include Child Abuse Song

Sure to be a controversial track...
The Mirror reports that a song on Michael Jackson's new album, "Do You Know Where Your Children Are?", will be about child sex abuse. The album will be released in May and includes seven other tracks. The song is about an abused 12-year-old who runs away from home and becomes a prostitute.
Jackson sings: "She wrote that she is tired of step-daddy using her/Saying that he'll buy her things, while sexually abusing her."
Some fans think that the repeated phrase "save me from this living hell" was written as a response to the sexual abuse claims made against him. He has been acquitted of sex abuse claims twice but was the subject of rumors for the rest of his life and even after his death in 2009. Last year, dancer Wade Robson claimed he was molested by Jackson. A hearing is set for June.
Xscape includes songs worked on by Timbaland and Epic Records chairman L.A. Reid. It is the second album of unreleased material to be released posthumously.
Reid said: "We are extremely proud and honored to present this music to the world."
