It was always funny he got Michael Jackson to appear on a song that sounds like a Prince knock-off. It sounds like Alphabet Street.

MJ and Eddie were good friends. Eddie actually did a really good impersonation of Mike on Delirious when he sang "She's out of my life".

The song is pretty good.

MJ looks happy in the video, which is nice to see.

Yea it is good & I agree it's nice to see MJ happy. I think he said in Moonwalk he was only really happy on stage and/or performing.

Like Bandit mentioned I'm getting Prince vibes from the song too. Wouldn't be out of place on the Graffiti Bridge soundtrack. I think if it were released back in like 88 or 89 it would have been a bigger hit. It only reached like 74 on the Billboard charts which is a shame.

1993 wasn't a good year for either of them. Janet was a bigger star than Michael and this was Distinguished Gentleman and Beverly Hills Cop III era Eddie, so the public wasn't interested in either of them at this point. But they both made comebacks in 1995.

Mike was still a huge deal internationally, I believe he was coming off the Dangerous Tour in 1993. I think him waiting so long between albums was costly since he could have come out with one in like 84 but that was arguably Princes year to shine. That MJ was still making predominantly R&B based music alienated him a little to the pure Rock audience. Prince appealed to those fans too. His first two albums were straight up R&B (although Bambi was a sign of things to come) then he transitioned into more a Rock/New Wave sound. So say Michael came out in 84 or 85 with an album, then followed that up in 86/87 (Bads a great album but not a classic IMO like Off the Wall or Thriller and followed trends instead of setting them) and brought out Dangerous in 89/90 he'd be ahead of the curve and be constantly setting trends. He could have predates what Puff was doing with Hip Hop Soul and really the Teddy Riley produced tracks are that, especially say if Heavy D or whomever dropped a verse on Remember the Time. So internationally Mike was still a big deal but he waited too long between albums. He was a perfectionist so that's likely why. But I'm sure all the top producers and writers wanted to work with him. A MJ and Jam & Lewis collaboration before Scream would have been cool. But I guess he was loyal to Quincy whereas he should have sought out the producers of the today sooner.

Yeah, internationally he never fell off, even with the scandal. But in the US people kind of got sick of Dangerous by spring 1992 and were more into the next generation of Boyz II Men, Jodeci, Mary J Blige, TLC, PM Dawn, En Vogue, etc. Like In The Closet was the biggest single from Dangerous in 1992, but on the End of the Year chart was only the 66th biggest single of the year, and Jam didn't chart on the year end (it only hit #26 when it was new.)

It's not that Dangerous wasn't good, the feeling was just he was THE defining star of the 1980s, and people wanted to be done with the 80s and have new music stars. Madonna and Prince had the same problem. The 90s were kind of rough commercially for Prince (although a lot of that has to do with the record label problems) and Madonna didn't have anything that ranked as big as her 80s stuff until Ray of Light in 1998. Every decade has a turnover in pop stars, but the 90s dumping the 80s was may have been the biggest. So it wasn't his fault, it was just how people felt.
