"Black Or White", released on November 11, 1991, was picked as the first single from Jackson's eighth studio album Dangerous (1991). The song has elements of dance, hip hop and hard rock music such as Bill Bottrell's guitars and Jackson's vocal style. Epic Records described the song as 'a rock'n'roll dance song about racial harmony'. The spectacular accompanying video clip, directed by John Landis, became famous for its morphing visual effects, created by Pacific Data Images. This technique had been previously used only in movies such as Willow and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. 'Black Or White' topped the hitlists in many countries, like the United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada, Australia, Italy, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, Greece, Ireland, and New Zealand.
