Jackson’s biggest Pop hit, this was her second single after “A Child of God (It’s Hard to Believe).” She had a series of R&B hits in a long and illustrious recording career, but never crossed over to the mainstream, which didn’t bother her a bit. In our interview with Millie Jackson, she explained: “In America I think in order to be a pop star you’ve got to have management. And I always managed myself. I was never looking to become that crossover pop star. Let white folks cross over to me. I call myself the poor people’s queen. Because once you get to the top there’s only one way to go.”
