Jackson himself made the decision that Hold My Hand would be the first single released off the album. Before he died on June 25, 2009, Jackson wrote a note stating his wish that Hold My Hand would be the album’s first single. That note is now property of his estate.

An unfinished version of the song first leaked in 2008, but in a statement put out by Sony Music, Akon said the song that is now on sale is different from the earlier version.
