It was released as the album's fourth single in January 1994, the track is a love song written and produced by Jackson and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. A remix of the song, the Frankie & David Treat Mix, appears on Jackson's second remix compilation, janet. Remixed.

Jackson performed the song on her janet. Tour and was the dedication song for the country of Taiwan for her 2011 Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour.

Chart performance[edit]

"Because of Love" became Jackson's first solo single since 1987's "The Pleasure Principle" to miss the top five domestically, peaking at number ten on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Airplay. It was a moderate success in other countries reaching the top twenty in the U.K. and top thirty in Australia.

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by Beth McCarthy, is composed of footage of Jackson and her dancers on the promo TV Shows tour (London; Leipzig, Saxony; New York City; Paris and Sydney) and rehearsals of Janet World Tour in Hartford, Connecticut. It was later included on the repackaged edition of 2001's All for You as well as the 2004 DVD From Janet to Damita Jo: The Videos.
