The commercial failure of his last album Journey through the Secret Life of Plants with only one single “Send One Your Love” making the top 5 of the Billboard chart left Stevie Wonder struggling at the turn of the new decade. He let the media know that he felt that Motown had not promoted the album very well. His talents kept him busy when he co-wrote the song “Let’s Get Serious” with Lee Garrett for Jermaine Jackson‘s 1980 album of the same name and another with Eric Mercury called “You Are My Heaven” which became a success for Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway on Atlantic Records. During this time of upheaval, he was also in demand as a guest artist on many other albums ranging from the likes of B.B. King, James Taylor, Quincy Jones and Smokey Robinson among others.

The country-tinged “I Ain’t Gonna Stand for It” (U.S. #11; R&B #4), the ballad “Lately” (U.S. #64) and the upbeat “Happy Birthday” were other notable successes from the album.
