Michael Jackson Xscape Features Bizarre Song About Child Abuse

Michael Jackson’s Xscape album features the track ‘Do You Know Where The Children Are’ about child abuse.

The song is a bizarre addition to the posthumous Jackson album considering the accusations he himself faced in the latter part of his life.

The lyrics go:

She wrote that she is tired of stepdaddy using her
Saying that he’ll buy her things, while sexually abusing her
Just think that she’s all alone somewhere out on the street
How will this girl survive?

According to the liner notes the song was solely written by Michael Jackson. It was written, but not used, for the ‘Bad’ album (1987) and further developed, but no used, for the ‘Dangerous’ album (1991).

The album notes say “the song is about children being raised in a broken family where their father comes home drunk and their mother is out prostituting and the kids run away from home and they become victims of rape, prostitution and the hunter becomes the hunted”.

Michael Jackson ‘Xscape’ will be released on May 16 through Sony Music. It is the fourth posthumous Jackson album after ‘This Is It’ (2009), ’Michael’ (2010) and ‘Immortal’ (2011).
