Michael Jackson - Black or White [HQ | 130MB]

"Black or White" was the first single taken from Michael Jackson's Dangerous album, released in November 1991. "Black or White" is a mix of hard rock, dance and hip hop.
Written, composed, and arranged by Jackson with the rap lyrics by Bill Bottrell, it is a song that promotes racial unity. The song's main riff, a Rolling-Stones fashioned lick, is performed by Bill Bottrell. Former guitarist of Guns N' Roses, Slash, played in the song's scripted intro vignette.
The song reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the UK Singles Chart, as well as in 18 other countries.

The music video for "Black or White" was first broadcast on MTV, BET, VH1, and Fox (giving them their highest Nielsen Ratings ever) on November 14, 1991. Along with Jackson, it featured Macaulay Culkin, Tess Harper, and George Wendt. It helped usher in morphing as a new technology in music videos, pioneered by Godley & Creme's "Cry" video in 1985. The video was directed by John Landis, who also directed Thriller.

Music Video
The first few minutes of the video featured an extended version of the song's intro, in which a young kid (Macaulay Culkin) is playing loud music in his bedroom at night, and is yelled at by his enraged father (George Wendt), who demands he stops playing the music and go to bed. The kid decides to reject his father's request to go to sleep by setting up large speaker cabinets behind his father's reclining chair, donning one leather glove and sunglasses, and playing an extremely loud power chord on an electric guitar. The sound then shatters the house's windows and sends his father (seated in his chair) halfway around the world, where the actual song begins. The kid's mother (Tess Harper) declares that his father will be "very upset" upon his return. The song from the CD does not use Culkin's or Wendt's voice; the CD version voice-over features Andres McKenzie, a 12-year-old Los Angeles native who was also a child actor. The father winds up in Africa, and Jackson begins to sing "Black or White", surrounded by various cultures scene-by-scene.
A young Tyra Banks, just beginning her career as a supermodel, is seen dancing to the song in the ending of the video, as well as actress Peggy Lipton.
