    To me, the big problem with the single is that it sounds like a Michael Jackson song - so far, all great - sung by Bee Gees - I hate their style of singing, it sounds dated and very waning-like.

    I agree. Luther's work with Aretha is amazing. Jump To It, Get It Right and many other songs from that era.

    It was more Diana's style than Sade.

    If so, she is absolutely right. He really did a lot for her. Ironically, it also traumatized her to the point that, after Berry, she would never let someone to take any control of her career.

    I would argue in terms of great management, especially in U.S. after Motown. I'm aware Diana kept making money and being a major live attraction. And I also think Diana did pretty good in her career...

    For what I understand Diana was not flexible and always wanted top-billing. She could easily have had a successful movie career as Cher did, but unlike Cher, she wasn't willing to be the costar or to...

    In the late 1990's, Billboard would count Diana's #1's as 8 in total: 2 as "Diana Ross & The Supremes", 6 solo [[1 being the duet with Lionel Ritchie).

    But if we think carefully, she was the sole...

    I agree with you. The 1983 album is one of my favorite ones.

    To be fair, songs like "Love Will Make It Right", "Let's Go Up", "You Do It" and "Love Or Loneliness" are top quality recordings. They...

    I can't wait for the new album. Deep down, I don't think it will be that different from I Love You, because Diana is Diana and time and time again she tends to like to do soft pop-soul productions,...

    Thanks for your insights, Bluebrocks.

    Did Diana ever expressed frustration regarding to TMH's commercial performence in U.S. or U.K.? She seemed to really believe in the record.
