Billie Jean

I guess Quicy Jones did not want him to include this in Thriller.

The song’s lyrics refer to a real-life experience, in which a mentally ill female fan claimed that Jackson fathered one of her twins.

The pop star faced numerous disagreements with the song’s producer. Quincy Jones did not want “Billie Jean” to appear on Thriller; he felt that the song was too weak to be part of the collection.[5] The producer disliked the demo and did not care for the song’s bass line.[8] Jones wanted to cut Jackson’s 29 second introduction, which Jackson insisted be kept. “I said, ‘Michael we’ve got to cut that intro'”, Jones later recalled. “He said, ‘But that’s the jelly!’…’That’s what makes me want to dance’. And when Michael Jackson tells you, ‘That’s what makes me want to dance’, well, the rest of us just have to shut up.”[7]
