Michael Jackson WBSS Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ Victory Tour Live In Kansas 1984 High Definition

“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” is a song by American songwriter and recording artist Michael Jackson. “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” was released on May 8, 1983, by Epic Records as the fourth single from Jackson’s sixth studio album Thriller in 1982. The song was written by Jackson and produced by Jackson and Quincy Jones. The song’s lyrics pertain to strangers spreading rumors to begin or start an argument just for no reason. Musically, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” has a cross-cultural disco theme, similar to Jackson’s material from his previous album Off the Wall in 1979. The song’s rhythm arrangement consists of interweaving drum-machine patterns, while the horn arrangement is brassy and precise. “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” has been covered and sampled by multiple recording artists since its release. Aside from Thriller, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” appears on multiple compilation and greatest hits albums by Jackson.

“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” was generally well received by contemporary music critics. The song was also commercially successful, charting within the top twenty and top thirty in multiple countries. The song became Jackson’s fifth consecutive top ten single in the United States on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking within the top ten at number five. The song re-entered charts in 2008 after the release of Thriller 25. Following Jackson’s death in June 2009, the song re-entered music charts worldwide, mainly due to digital download sales. Unlike previous singles from Thriller, “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” did not have a music video to accompany it, but was performed by Jackson on world concert tours, as both a member of The Jacksons and as a solo artist.

As part of the release of Thriller 25, a remix of “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'”, entitled “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’ 2008”, was recorded with Akon, and released as the second single from the album. The song was commercially successful, mainly charting within the top ten in six countries, as well as the top twenty in several territories worldwide. The song was more successful internationally than in the United States, having peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 at number eighty-one, which was the song’s lowest charting position.
