Mtume – Juicy Fruit
Published: 5 years ago
“Juicy Fruit” is a funk song written by James Mtume and released as the lead-off single from Mtume’s sixth album, also titled Juicy Fruit. The mid-tempo song is arguably Mtume’s most well-known, proving enormously successful on R&B radio stations and (to a lesser extent) nightclubs when first released. The song reached number one on the Billboard Hot Black Singles chart on June 4, 1983 and remained there for 8 weeks. Its success on the Billboard Pop Singles chart, however, was more modest, reaching number forty-five. The single remarkably became a certified one million seller on July 25, 1982 without even becoming a Top 40 hit.
