This disc gave Aretha her tenth #1 R&B album - at the time it was the all-time record. It enjoyed a seven-week run at #1 on Billboard 's R&B albums chart and also reached #23 on Billboard's main album chart. It was hailed as a comeback album, given that it provided Aretha with her first Gold-certified disc and Top 40 song since Sparkle in 1976. This album is currently out of print.
The title track, "Jump To It", was Aretha's first Pop Top 40 hit since 1976 and her first #1 R&B hit since 1977's "Break It To Me Gently". The infectious song was nominated for a Grammy Award. The album itself received an American Music Award for Best Soul Album.
