The ballad was originally supposed to have been sung (possibly in a different production) by Sammy Davis, Jr. but for various reasons, the entertainer could not get on the schedule to do the song and the song was then given to the Jackson 5. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart, and at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is the first single by The Jackson 5 not to reach the top five of the Pop charts.

English reggae band UB40 recorded a reggae-style cover version in 1987. This was released as a single, peaking at #14 in the UK Official Chart, and appeared on their Greatest Hits album released the same year.
