排行榜信息
美國R&B榜: #42
美國熱門舞曲榜: #18
美國熱門R&B/Hip-Hop廣播榜: #23
美國節奏Top 40榜: #3895年12月初,《HIStory》專輯中的「This Time Around」同「Earth Song」在美國地區被發放到電台做前期宣傳,最後以失敗告終。而「Earth Song」在MTV台成為當時點播率最高的音樂錄影,但並沒有讓這支附帶在該碟里的歌曲獲得良好的點播。「This Time Around」在傳送過程中,擁有了很多種混音版,但人們沒能真的聽到它們或買到它們。只有David Morales混音版最終出現在了《Blood On The Dance Floor》專輯上。
該曲被普遍認為是索尼音樂公司對Michael Jackson的最壞市場運營。在聖誕節檔期里沒有安排任何恰當的單曲來發售,「You Are Not Alone」和「They Don't Care About Us」之間的發行間隔太大,《HIStory》的銷量只能不斷下滑。在37周內賣出350萬套專輯后,《HIStory》跌出了榜單,從此再也沒有回來。而在世界的其他地方,則是完全不同的景象。
花絮
大量的「This Time Around」的前期宣傳用CD以及12英寸vinyl版本的單曲如今成為Michael Jackson迷中收藏者的珍品。尤其是有9支曲目的12英寸vinyl版本的單曲(Epic EAS 7603/4)尤為值錢,每張大概值100英鎊。

(Rap: The Notorious BIG) (說唱:The Notorious BIG)
Listen, I've got problems of my own 聽著,我遇上麻煩了
Flashin' cameras, taps on my phone 晃眼的閃光燈,電話的竊聽器
Even in my home I ain't safe as I should be 即使在家中也沒有安全感
Things always missin' 東西總是丟
Maybe it could be my friends 也許會是我的朋友
They ain't friends if they robbin' me 如果真是他們那就不是朋友了
Stoppin' me from makin' a profit, see 阻止我得益,看到了么
Apology shallow like the ocean 道歉像淺灘一樣膚淺
I guess I'll resort to gun totin' 我看我得用槍來解決
If I was dead broke and smokin' 如果我一文不名還很可恥
I'd probably be by my lonesome 我也許不會招惹上誰
I'm a killer nigga I ain't jokin' 我是個殺人犯兄弟我沒在說笑
Endo smoke got me choked and I'm hopin' 烏煙瘴氣另我窒息希望
The fool comes slippin' 愚人們失足於是
So I could blow'em open 我便可以公開猛揍他們
This time around 此時此刻
I changed up my flow 我變了向
Got rid of the rocks 避開絆腳石
Got pits by the door 家門被打穿
I've raised other peoples to watch my back 我叫人看著後面
Stay away from strangers 遠離陌生人
So I won't slack 所以我不會掉以輕心
And I know my nigga Mike like that 而我知道我的兄弟麥克也正是如此
Baby

He really thought he really had 他真以為,真以為他
They thought they really had control of me 他們以為自己真能控制我了
This time around yeah 他真以為、yeah
