Tired of injustice
Tired of the scheme
Life is disgustin’

    Scream”, is a duet with his younger sister and R&B-pop singer, Janet Jackson, while the corresponding B-side, “Childhood”, a solo piece. The single was released on May 31, 1995.

    “Scream” is cited primarily as an aggressive, retaliatory song directed at the tabloid media and their coverage of the child sexual abuse accusations made against Michael Jackson in 1993. “Scream” was written, composed and produced by Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson; Michael played many of the instruments. It incorporates elements of pop, electrorock, new jack swing, dance-pop, and funk. Recording for Scream took place at the Hit Factory in New York City and at Flyte Tyme Studios in Edina, Minnesota in December 1994. The song was leaked to radio stations early, despite Epic Records’ attempt to keep it off air until the official release date.
