It's a nice groove, I agree about Rhythm Nation also NKOTB The Right Stuff. Is this Jam & Lewis production or Teddy?

I get what you're saying but this has been a track talked up about for ages (meant for the Dangerous album) and has never been released.

Neither. It was with Bryan Loren. Probably recorded in 1989.

The chorus sounds a bit like the bridge in "Black or White". "I ain't' scared of your brother, I ain't scared of no sheets..." The rhythm and delivery are the same. It's a chant.

It's definitely biting the heels of "Rhythm Nation" and "State of the World", etc.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Yeah. We need to get that MJ sticky back so that all the Jackson fans can talk about him to their heart's content and the rest of us can just ignore it. Mods, are you listening?!

Agree, if you go on a MJ board there's threads called: "All things Prince", not multible threads.

I never understand why people who are such MJ fans go to a Prince fanside to post about MJ. Why not go to a MJ fanside?

Then why is there a "Music: Non-Prince" section at all?

I've never understood why people click on and read threads about MJ, if you are gonna whine about it. Just skip those threads or don't read them.

Exactly. Why complain about Michael threads when I have seen multiple threads about other artists? Hypocrisy???

Hope it's released original form someday, it sounds promising

The melody reminds me of a song from that Christmas Scrooge movie on vh1 with vanessa Williams , and the bridge of Janet's you can be mine

Definitely captured jam &a Lewis sound well, but yet very very mj!

Def sounds like some Rhythm Nation stuff. Sounds funky as hell.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

Neither. It was with Bryan Loren. Probably recorded in 1989.



Probably the strongest of their collabs, other than Superfly Sister.

They need to get this guy on board for the next posthumous project...

Not bad, definitely has that Rythm Nation vibe but that's no bad thing. Maybe it's not quite as unique as some of his other songs from that era but certainly would have fitted on the album well or as teamed up with a slower number for a double A side release.
