Michael Jackson is one of my favourite artists if not my most favourite artist of all time. That’s why I absolutely love my Flashback 90’s song for today, “You Are Not Alone.” The song came out in 1995 but I was surprised to find out that it was written by R. Kelly. He wrote it in response to a difficult time in his personal life, he then sent it to Jackson who loved it and decided to produce it with Kelly. R. Kelly decided to cover the song later as a hidden track on his 2010 studio album Love Letter, paying tribute to Jackson’s death a year prior.

“You Are Not Alone” was the recipient of Grammy and American Music Award nominations. Commercially the song was a significant success. It holds a Guinness World Record as the first song in the 37-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 to debut at number one. It made it to #2 here in Canada on the Canada Top Singles.
