R&B and hip-hop producer Teddy Riley worked on many of the Dangerous
tracks. He recalled to Musicradar.com
: "This reminds me so much of Dirty Diana
. I think he recaptured that sound on this song. You know, I think he went back to his roots of recording with this song to record an incredible track. I thought it would take someone like Quincy Jones [who produced Dirty Diana] to really put an incredible track like that together. I thought it would take someone like Quincy to get that sound, but Michael came up with it."
