Throwback Thursday R&B Song: “Let’s Groove” By Earth, Wind & Fire

This week’s song is from one of the most successful music groups in history.

Earth, Wind & Fire’s “Let’s Groove” was originally released in 1981 off their album Raise!.  The song was not warmly welcomed at first by all critics, describing it as another generic disco song.  But those who did have praise for the song were the clear winners since it hit within the top 20 in countries such as the United States as number three on Billboard’s Hot 100, number 3 on UK Singles, Canada’s Top singles number seven and number two in New Zealand.

The video for the song was the first video ever to be played on BET’s Video Soul.
