    EDIAND was also Diana's first album released without a single release. It was around this time that many companies were only releasing singles to radio for promo but not commercially, forcing buyers...

    You never know what might have happened. I mean who would have thought that I LOVE YOU would have been Diana's highest-charting album in more than 20 years?

    That said, Diana really promoted I LOVE...

    It probably would have been a hit but I don't think it would have led to any further hits for Diana. It probably would have been seen as a hit because of Brandy just like NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO might...

    I always wondered what might have happened if Mary decided to leave as well when Flo was dismissed. Berry probably would have done all he could to keep Mary in the group because she was less...

    Because once she became a solo artist, Diana hardly did television except when she was starring in one of her own specials, promoting a film, or hosting an awards show. There were exceptions of...

    Motown certainly did more than its share of in-house covers. But they certainly did a lot of covers of outside material as well. Look at the Vandellas' HEAT WAVE album on which there is only one...

    Thanks for the info.

    I believe Xmas singles and albums were put on their own special chart back then so the girls' Xmas album never charted pop.

    It would be interesting to know how high their...

    Interesting question but I'm sorry that I don't know the answer.

    I think it is a nice recording but I would have never thought of it as a single, at least not the second single. I would have gone with NO ONE GETS THE PRIZE.
