    Default This Time Around

    This song should've been a single & had a video! Imo I think it wouldve put a boost on history because it was so different & hip hop like,im sure alot of ppl still dont know mj did a song with b.i.g. & it wouldve help his urban community at least after the trial i think..that video wouldve been so tight! Does anybody think they could come up with a concept of how it wouldve been had they did it?

    It was a promo-only single in the USA and Europe.
    But besides the rap feature gimmick it's not really a great song. A classic album filler.
    It only made the niche charts because of the club and urban remixes.

    US Chart (1995/1996)
    Billboard '​s Dance Music/Club Play Singles: Peak 18
    Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay: Peak 23
    Billboard Rhythmic Top 40: Peak 36

    No chart entry in Europe.

    Such a great chorus. There should have been a video for every song in HISTory. Even a film based on the concept of injustice, but thats me being greedy

    Sounds somewhat dated now. One of the weaker cuts on the album.

    I love the song but Michael giving a 'proper' release of a song that has a rap promoting killing is not really something I could see MJ do..

    I recently watched , a film about "The history of urban fashion from its start on cotton plantations to its spread to corporate America." Starring Kanye West, Damon Dash, Karl Kani. It helped to understand the revolution that became 'hip hop' or rap music. What drew me to this was the name Damon Dash. He was the money that took Michael Jackson to court, to sue him, because of Michael's brother, Randy Jackson. It was during the time of the trial in 2005, involving Gavin Arvizo, that Randy Jackson and his business partner tried to buy the Beatles Catalog, on behalf of Damon Dash.

    Anyways, "This Time Around," doesn't really fit into this genre of hip hop or rap. It's a good song, don't get me wrong, it just doesn't fit and I can see why nothing more became of the song, other than what it did!
    Michael is really great! He has no snobbery to him, he's just a good kid. Michael is a gentle spirit and he takes over our kids. He loves kid's, we watch a lot of cartoons together. - Linda McCartney being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhZPy0ZeuvI

    Didn't Mike shoot at the soldiers with a machine gun in Smooth Criminal and he also shot the guy with a pistol that was going to attack him? Then he kills Joe Pesci's drug dealer character in the long version. I never understand why people complain about song lyrics when action films are full of killing and stuff blowing up and they're often the big moneymaking blockbuster movies. Same for video games. You could say the Moonwalker video game is violent, since the main character has to get rid of the henchmen to save the kids.

    ^ My response to that was Michael has always played the line of visual violence while never really showcasing it In his music.. what I mean by that, it really wasn't his nature to have violent threats in his music yet still show violence in videos.. I cant think of a song that preaches violence but only as speaking of a victim of it. (Blood on the dance floor/ Little Suzie / Smooth Criminal) all speaking of victim. It was the first (that I can think of right now) that a song was pro violence.. That and the insinuation of gun shot towards Tom Sneddon in DS (Same album)
