|Eddie Kendricks singles chronology|
"Boogie Down" is a 1973 song recorded by Eddie Kendricks for Motown Records' Tamla label. The song was co-written by Leonard Caston, Jr., Anita Poree and Frank Wilson, the same song writing team that had composed "Keep on Truckin'", Kendricks' first major hit as a solo artist. Caston and Wilson co-produced the song and the arrangement was handled by Caston, Wilson and David Van DePitte.
Like "Keep on Truckin'", "Boogie Down" is an up-tempo, Disco/Funk number that saw heavy rotation in dance clubs. Released as a single from the album of the same name, "Boogie Down" became Kendricks' second consecutive single to top the Billboard's R&B Singles Chart, holding the number one position for three weeks, and just missed becoming his second straight #1 on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart, peaking at number two for two straight weeks. However, it was his second # 1 single on the Cash Box top 100 chart.
