"Can’t Let Her Get Away" is a song by Michael Jackson, from his eighth studio album Dangerous. It is the sixth track on the album. The story is about a failing relationship between Michael and his lover. He does everything to satisfy his lover but to no avail, she breaks up with him. Michael is battling within himself throughout the song and he finally decides that he can’t let her get away.

 

The song was written and produced by Jackson and Teddy Riley, and was recorded and mixed by Bruce Swedien and Riley in 1991. It interpolates musical ideas from the songs "Nasty", "Funky Drummer" and "South Bronx". Also it contains samples of “Movin” from Brass Construction and “Get Up Offa That Thing” from James Brown. This song was reportedly re-recorded in 1993 to promote the film The Meteor Man. It was also released as the album's promo single.
