Bruce Gowers directed the stark music video that put Jackson's emotions front and center. He told Rolling Stone
: "What you're seeing on there is one complete take, it was shot multi-camera. [This and 'Rock With You
'] were both shot on the same day. I think we shot one at like three in the afternoon and one at 5… Very emotional he was in that. I was worried that he was actually going to break down and cry – which would have probably been a bit wonderful if we got some tears rolling down the face. That almost happened but not quite."
