United is the twelfth studio album by the Commodores, released on October 7, 1986 as the follow-up to their extremely successful album Nightshift from the previous year. This album included one of The Commodores' last significant hits in "Goin' to the Bank", and it has been the group's last major charting album to date, even though they went on to release several albums since. "Goin' to the Bank" climbed to number two on Billboard's R&B singles chart. The follow-up single, "Take It From Me", barely entered the top 40 on the R&B chart, while another single, the ballad "United in Love", peaked at #22 on the Adult Contemporary chart.[2]
