Release Date[edit]

I hope no one minds, but i changed the release date of "Butterflies" to 2001, specifaclly "11/8/01" because thats when it made official debut at #60 on the U.S. Hot 100 chart. It Spent 2 weeks earlier on the R&B/HipHop Charts. souce located at: http://music.yahoo.com/read/news/12063973 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.171.245.107 (talk) 01:12, 20 November 2008 (UTC)

Kevin C. Johnson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch described "Butterflies" as being about the "feeling that special someone gives him."[13] Music critics writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel said that the track shows the "shy, gentle side" of Jackson.[14] -> Both in wrong section.

Critical Reception[edit]

When i look at this whole section i just feel like deleting it from top to bottom. Tons of irrelevant sources in a section that gives the idea of a mid-quality song by Jackson when it's actually one of his most famous and praised tracks of his recent years (by "recent" i mean the last 3 albums or so, "Invincible", "HIStory" and "Dangerous").

Please, this section is urging for an edit... Sonicadv27 (talk) 11:15, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
