This was one of three songs originally conceived by Michael Jackson in 1998 with Elliot Straite, a New Jack Swing producer who goes by the name "Dr. Freeze."
"The main songs on which we worked are 'Break Of Dawn,' 'A Place With No Name
' and 'Blue Gangsta'," explained Freeze on his website
. "These three songs were our priorities… He adored them! Michael and I, we have a knack for melody. So every time I proposed something, it was easy for him to study the song because it was as if he already knew. I gave him some songs that he adored. He cherished them."
