"Black or White" was written, composed and produced by Michael Jackson and Bill Bottrell, and was picked as the first single from the album Dangerous.
The song's main riff is often falsely attributed to Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, which he denied during an interview in 2010 in which he added that the riff was 'gay'. This may have been due to Slash's guitar work being featured in the opening skit for the song's track on the album.
"Black or White" entered Billboard's Hot 100 at number thirty five.
A week later it shot up to number three and on its third week, December 7, 1991, it ascended to number one, making it the fastest chart topper since the Beatles' "Get Back" also won the Hot 100 in just three weeks in 1969.
