Performances

It Was First performed in the Dangerous World Tour (1992-1993). It was performed again for the last in the Royal Concert (1996). It would've been for the last time in This Is It (2009-2010) but the concert residency was ultimately cancelled due to Michael's Death.

Trivia

  • In the Sonic the Hedgehog 3 video game, the music for one of the levels zones, Carnival Night, shares a similarity with Jam.
  • The "Jam" sample taken straight from Jam (right when Heavy D begins rapping) was used in Carnival Night, but sounds different due to the Mega Drive/Genesis sound chip.
