In 1982, Shalamar had one of the biggest disco hits in their career. The group started as some studio musicians, working together. The core of the group was formed by two background dancers in the show Soultrain. The group was mostly popular in the UK, as they had only one big hit in the US (The Second Time Around). They were trend setters and were the first to show the moonwalk (Michael Jackson was a big fan of Shalamar and later made the moonwalk famous). With this song, they had a number 7 hit in the UK.
