"2300 Jackson Street" is a 1989 single released by The Jacksons from their album of the same name.[1][2] The song features Michael and Marlon Jackson, who had previously left the group, although this is the only track that they are featured on the album. It also features two of the Jackson sisters Rebbie and Janet. "2300 Jackson Street" is about the Jackson family's childhood home in Gary, Indiana. The track was written and composed by The Jacksons as well as Teddy Riley among others. It peaked on the Billboard R&B singles chart at #9.

Music video[edit]

The video features most of the Jackson family members, including children of The Jacksons. La Toya is not featured in the music video nor the song, as she was estranged from the family at the time. Marlon, while he sang on the track, also didn't appear in the video. Some scenes include the Jackson family playing pool and Jermaine, Tito, Randy and Jackie playing football. It also shows some members of the Jackson family (apart from La Toya and Marlon) singing the song together. The video was shot in March 1989.[3][3][4][5][6][7]
