"Escapade" is the third single from American R&B-pop singer Janet Jackson's fourth studio album, Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 (1989).
"Escapade" was inspired by the Martha & the Vandellas 1965 single "Nowhere to Run", which Jackson originally intended to remake, but instead choose to record a new song with a similar feel after a suggestion from producer Jimmy Jam.
Written by Jackson, James…
As I was walkin' by
Saw you standin' there with a smile
Lookin' shy, you caught my eye
Thought you'd want to hang for a while
