Today in MJJ HIStory
1972 – Michael Jackson’s single I Wanna Be Where You Are hit #16 in the U.S.
The song was released from his debut album “Got To Be There” as a single, probably the most soulful early single he released. As usual, Michael’s delivery is impeccable, written by Leon Ware & Arthur “T-Boy” Ross for Michael Jackson, who took the song to #16 & #2 on the U.S. pop & R&B singles charts in 1972. The single made his 3rd straight Top 40 pop hit during his early solo career in Motown, he would break this record with Off The Wall, but this was a very good start for the newly solo Michael Jackson.
1988 – Video for Another Part of Me was filmed using Michael’s Bad Tour performance.
Once again, Michael chose to promote the single with a ‘live’ promo, his first ever filmed during an actual concert – the Wembley Stadium gig.
1995 – The maxi single for Michael Jackson’s Scream was released.
