Release Date

January 16, 1975

This was originally included on Michael Jackson’s 1975 LP Forever, Michael. The album was Jackson’s final contractual studio album as a soloist with Motown Records. Jackson was 16 years old at the time. In 1979 Jackson recorded his breakthrough solo album Off The Wall with Epic Records. It was a smash success and Motown cashed in on his new found fame by re-releasing this song. It topped the UK charts, knocking off Smokey Robinson’s “Being With You,” thereby giving Motown back to back UK #1s.
