Stephanie is the fifth album by Stephanie Mills. It was released in 1981 and produced by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas. The album features the song "Two Hearts" by Teddy Pendergrass. By default, this fulfilled her contract with 20th Century-Fox Records. In 1982 Stephanie received a nomination for Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female at the 24th Grammy Awards. In 1981, oil magnate and industrialist Marvin Davis (1925–2004) and financier Marc Rich (1934–2013) bought Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation, the owner of the label in question, for a grand total of $703 million.[1] However, Davis expressed disinterest in buying the record company and thus sold the record label to PolyGram earlier that year. PolyGram, a European conglomerate that was buying up US record labels as fast as they could make deals, immediately shut down the label, and had all of its artists' contracts and reissues (including Mills') transferred to their Casablanca imprint, which they had owned since owning 50% of the company in 1977.[2] The previous year, when Mills recorded her LP Sweet Sensation, PolyGram bought the other 50% of the company.[3]
