Dangerous is the eighth studio album by American singer Michael Jackson. It was released by Epic Records on November 26, 1991. Jackson, Bill Bottrell, Teddy Riley, and Bruce Swedien co-produced the album. This was Jackson's first album since Forever, Michael (1975) not produced by longtime collaborator Quincy Jones. Featured artists include Heavy D, Princess Stéphanie of Monaco, Slash and Wreckx-n-Effect. The music incorporates R&B, pop and new jack swing, a new genre in vogue at the time. Elements of industrial, funk, hip hop, gospel, classical and rock can also be found. Twelve of the album's fourteen songs were written or co-written by Jackson, discoursing topics like racism, poverty, romance, self-improvement, and the welfare of children and the world. Dangerous debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, as well as in ten other countries' charts. Nine singles premiered between November 1991 and December 1993, including two exclusively released outside the United States. The album produced four singles that reached top ten of the Billboard Hot 100: "Remember the Time", "In the Closet", "Will You Be There" and number-one single "Black or White". The Dangerous World Tour grossed $100 million (equivalent to $177 million in 2019) which made it one of the highest-grossing tours of the 1990s. All proceeds went to charities including Jackson's Heal the World Foundation. Jackson sold the film and broadcast rights for the 1992 Bucharest concert to HBO for $21 million, the highest amount for a concert performer to appear on television at the time. Dangerous is one of the best-selling albums of all time, having sold over 32 million copies worldwide and was certified 8× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in August 2018. An influence on contemporary pop and R&B artists, Dangerous has been rated by critics and publications as one the greatest albums of all time, as well as considered by some critics as Jackson's artistic peak. It received four Grammy Award nominations and won Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
