"One More Chance" is a song by American recording artist Michael Jackson. It was penned by R. Kelly and co-produced by Jackson and Kelly for inclusion on Jackson's compilation album Number Ones, released in 2003. The song was later included on the Australian, French, Swedish and Indonesian editions of King of Pop and the Japanese Limited edition of The Ultimate Collection box set.[1]

Released on November 20, 2003, "One More Chance" was the last original single released during Jackson's lifetime. It received a positive reception from music critics and reached the top ten in Italy and the United Kingdom. It was released as a single on November 20, 2003, reaching #5 in the UK and reaching #1 in Venezuela, Moldova and Turkey. The song also managed to reach the top 30 in Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, and peaked at number 83 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Composition[edit]

"One More Chance" was a mid-tempo R&B ballad penned by R. Kelly, who along with Jackson also produced and sang background vocals for the track. The song is played in the key of G major at 80 bpm.

Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic noted that "there is, of course, the requisite previously unreleased song, the OK slow jam "One More Chance."[2]

Music video[edit]

Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch was raided by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office, investigating child molestation allegations made against the singer, which resulted in the 2005 criminal trial and subsequent acquittal of Jackson on all charges. Jackson had been shooting the video late into the night of November 17, 2003, but following the raid, production was stopped. The music video was directed by Nicholas Brandt. The single was instead promoted using a montage video of highlights from Jackson's career to date.[3][4][5]

On October 13, 2010, the official website of Michael Jackson announced that the music video would be released in a deluxe DVD box set Michael Jackson's Vision on November 22, 2010.[6] A rough 2 minute cut of the video leaked online on November 15, 2010. On November 19, 2010, the full length of the video premiered on Jackson's official website. As with the song being the last brand new single released during his lifetime, the music video is also Jackson's last music video and the first with new footage to be released posthumously. The video begins with a group of people walking onto a stage. The curtain opens to reveal a cafe that Jackson starts dancing in with the group of people watching. The lack of closeups on Jackson's face is a result of scheduling conflicts that were brought about by the raid.
