April 1, 1976

“I’m Gonna Let My Heart Do the Walking” is a disco-styled soul single composed by the Holland brothers Eddie and Brian, members of the former Holland–Dozier–Holland team and was released as a single by Motown vocal group The Supremes in 1976 on the Motown label. It was the first single since “Your Heart Belongs to Me” in 1962 to feature four Supremes. It is also notable for being the last top forty single the group would score before they disbanded in 1977.

The single eventually peaked at number 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 25 on the R&B singles chart, and hit number three on Billboard’s disco chart.[2][3][4] It was also the Supremes’ last of thirty-three singles to hit the top 40 nearly thirteen years after first hitting the top 40 with “When the Lovelight Starts Shining Through His Eyes”. Less than eighteen months after this single’s release, the Supremes officially disbanded.
