"I Feel For You" is one of Chaka Khan's biggest 80s R&B hits, released in 1984. Prince wrote the song and recorded it first, and it was a single on his 1978 self-titled album. Prince's version does not contain any variation of the opening rap lyrics that the Chaka Khan version is famous for, and Stevie Wonder supplies the harmonic melodies on Khan's rendition.

"Can You Feel It" appears on The Jacksons's 1981 studio album "Triumph," the group's sixteenth. The song reached 30 on the U.S. R&B charts. Michael Jackson and Jackie Jackson co-wrote it.

"I'll Be Good" is single on "Street Named Desire," the 1985 album by singing duo Rene & Angela. The album, which went Platinum, was the duo's last as a group, and the single reached number four on the U.S. R&B charts. The song contains the lyrics "You know I love you more," a reiteration of a previous song titled "I Love You More," a chart-topping single on their "Wall to Wall" album.
