While we were peacefully slumbering (and dreaming of warmer days), Justin Timberlake decided that his duet with Michael Jackson, “Love Never Felt So Good,’’ was ready for your ears.

Happy Friday.

Hashtagged #PLAYITLOUD, the track is the first single off of Jackson’s posthumous 8-song release, “Xscape,’’ and was originally written in 1983. The album is expected to hit shelves and online catalogues May 13.

Timberlake isn’t the only one getting in on the “LNFSG’’ action. During last night’s inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards, Usher danced to the Jackson-only version of the track — we consider it his stamp of approval. Timberlakeis in Europe for the overseas leg of the “20/20 Experience World Tour.’’ Thinkhe’ll perform the new track at his Belgium show tonight?
