December 07, 2023

On this date in 1991, Michael’s single “Black or White” hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It remained at the top of that US chart for seven weeks and hit #1 in 20 other countries. Pitchfork on Michael’s short film for the hit: “It blends into his idealistic visionary side that wanted to heal the world through philanthropy and moonwalking. There is pop locking with Balinese dancers, rain dances with Native Americans, folk dances in front of the Kremlin, and the serenade of a Hindu goddess on a freeway.” Watch the 11-minute short film for the hit song now.
