In the U.S., it reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number one on the Radio & Records singles charts., while in the UK, it peaked at number ten. On February 20, 2006, the single, as well as the video, was re-released as part of the Visionary: The Video Singles package. The 14-minute video is regarded by many as the greatest music video of all-time, and the song itself is considered to be one of Jackson’s signature songs. The single was released slightly earlier in the United Kingdom, in November 1983 and staying on the chart until February 1984.
