"That Girl" is a song by American R&B singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder. The song was the leading single from Wonder's album-era greatest-hits compilation, Stevie Wonder's Original Musiquarium I, as one of four newer songs from the collection. The song spent nine weeks at number one on the Billboard R&B singles chart and reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100.[1] The song would later be sampled by rapper 2Pac on his song, "So Many Tears" and covered by R&B singer Joe. The song was sampled by Queen Latifah on her album Order in the Court on the non-U.S. track "Let Her Live". A cover version appears on UK band Hue and Cry's 1992 album "Truth & Love". MJG, one half of the hip-hop duo 8Ball & MJG also sampled the song of the same name on his 1997 solo debut No More Glory.
