"Get It" is a song recorded by American singer-songwriter Stevie Wonder with a guest vocal by American pop recording artist Michael Jackson. Taken from his 20th studio album Characters, Jackson worked with Wonder eight years earlier for the song "I Can't Help It" for his Off the Wall album, which was written by Wonder and former Supremes member Susaye Greene, while Wonder worked with Jackson on his top-selling Bad album for the song, "Just Good Friends". Prior to "Get It", Jackson sung background vocals along with his brothers on Stevie's 1974 hit "You Haven't Done Nothin'", from his Fulfillingness' First Finale album and also did background vocal work on "All I Do" from the Hotter than July album. The single reached number four on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, number eleven on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart, while reaching a peak of number 80 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
