Only on Music Unlimited 

Jackson Epic Chicago

Michael Jackson’s XSCAPE is coming to Music Unlimited on May 13. In anticipation of its arrival, Epic Records is giving our subscribers early access to five exclusive tracks from the album, which features contemporized versions of previously unheard work from the King of Pop’s vaults. We’ll stream a new song each day this week and reveal artwork for it right here on the Sony Entertainment Network blog.

Today’s track is “Chicago.

About the Song: Michael Jackson fell in love with “Chicago” (a/k/a “She Was Lovin’ Me”) the first time he heard it. Written by songwriter, producer and former Sony VP Cory Rooney, a scratch demo was sent  to Jackson in Los Angeles in 1999. Within days, Jackson was on a flight to New York City, ready to record the song at The Hit Factory in midtown Manhattan. Jackson sings in his lower register in the verses over an ominous beat, slowly painting a story of an illicit affair, before unleashing a torrent of pain and regret in the chorus. The song has often been referred to as “Chicago” (likely due to the lyric, “I met her on my way to Chicago,” though it is not to be confused with Jackson’s unreleased Bad session recording “Chicago 1945”).

5/6 Tuesday – “Loving You”
