"Bodyheat" (sometimes spelled "Body Heat") is a song recorded by James Brown. It was released in 1976 as a two-part single on Polydor Records and also appeared on an album of the same name.[1] It charted #13 R&B and #88 Pop.[2] It was Brown's last song to appear on the Billboard Hot 100 until "Living in America" in 1985.
