"You Like Me Don't You" by Jermaine Jackson

Song#:  0567
Date:  04/18/1981
Debut:  93
Peak:  50
Weeks:  9
Genre:  R&B

Pop Bits:  Coming off of his biggest solo success to-date with the LP "Let's Get Serious," Jackson issued the follow-up "Jermaine." It's first single, "Little Girl Don't You Worry," only reached #17 at R&B and failed to make the pop chart. This second effort did a bit better and made it to the halfway mark at pop (#13 R&B).

ReduxReview:  Meh! It's a pleasant enough song, but there is nothing here to really latch onto. After his collabs with Stevie Wonder on his previous album, this is certainly lackluster.

ReduxRating:  4/10

Trivia:  When The Jackson 5 decided to leave Motown, Jermaine chose to leave the group and stay with Motown for his solo career. He had good reason to do so as he was married to Hazel Gordy - Berry Gordy's daughter. So with the label-head as your father-in-law, it was probably wise to stay put.
