Watch: Lost Michael Jackson Video

November 19, 2010 4:43 PM ET

 

A previously unreleased Michael Jackson video for his 2003 song "One More Chance" was posted on the singer's site Friday.

The R. Kelly-penned song was released as a single late that year and was featured on Jackson's Number Ones LP. The video is apparently unconnected to Michael, the album of previously unreleased material, out December 14.

The video was filmed primarily in Las Vegas in 2003 and wasn't completed, although Jackson approved the cut before it was shelved, according to his site. Presumably it was abandoned after the November 2003 raid on Jackson's Neverland Ranch by police investigating child-molestation accusations against the singer.

The clip features Jackson dancing and lip-synching in a theater, but, in a switch, he performs around (and on top of) tables while the audience stands on the stage. The song's mellow tempo keeps his dance moves calm until around the three-minute mark, when he cuts loose, bounding on tables, kicking over lamps and pulling some trademark spins and arms-outstretched gestures.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
