After pre-releasing this song for Disney's Captain Eo, Michael chose this track for the final cut.
But it was no overnight decision. You see, Quincy and Michael both struggled between two wonderfully recorded tracks. Both of superb quality. Jones preferred this track while Michael wanted Streetwalker. But he didn't care which one make it since each had large potential to reach number one.
Michael penned this tune to remind all his fans to unite as one(as with a lot of his tunes). But originally, it was meant to convince the queen of her inner beauty on "Captain Eo".
The introduction reminds you of an I-Max advertisement before a movie starts at the theater. Then a New Wave synthetic rhythm invites us on an 80's platform! Michael Jackson while conforming to the newest trends of the day stayed within his bubble of talent. Relevancy is written all over this track!
