Jimmy Jam Reminiscing On Michael Jackson Recording “Scream”
June 12, 2018

This week in 1995, “Scream” emerged at #3 on the British charts and would remain in the top 100 for 24 weeks. Jimmy Jam remembers: “Recording the song was probably one of the most mind-blowing experiences ever. He walked into the studio, very nice and very kind: ‘OK, I’m going to try my part now. . . .’ So Michael goes in and the moment the music starts, he turns into the Tasmanian Devil. He’s a whole different person, stomping, clapping, he’s got jewelry jingling — all the stuff you’re not supposed to do in the studio. Me and Terry are sitting there going ‘Oh my God!’”
