In December 1980, Motown released “Jermaine”, the 7th Jermaine Jackson’s Motown solo album. After the success of “Let’s Get Serious”, Jermaine came back with his most consistent album ever, with amazing songs like “All Because Of You” and “First You Laugh And Then You Cry”.

Jermaine produced the album and wrote several songs, including "You Like Me Don't You Worry" and "You Like Me Don't You", the two singles released late 1980 and 1981.

The album features other artists in the background vocals : Switch and Bobby DeBarge. The voice of Jermaine really stands out on this album. Unfortunately, no chance to find this album on CD!
