Nearly five years after his death, Michael Jackson is still making us get our groove on — with a song recorded 30 years ago, no less.

"Love Never Felt So Good," the first single from Jackson's posthumous album, Xscape, was released on iTunes last night and is already poised to top the charts. The song was originally recorded and demoed by the singer in a 1983 session with Paul Anka and Kathy Wakefield. Johnny Mathis recorded his own version a year later, and Jackson's take remained unreleased — until now.

Usher presented the born-again track during last night's iHeartRadio Music Awards, but it's Justin Timberlake who has given the song his own personal spin. Timberlake revealed a link to a duet version of the song, which you can also play below. It's so hard to pick a favorite, right?
