Second Listen: "Never Knew Love Like This Before" (Stephanie Mills)

Earlier this week, NBC announced that Stephanie Mills would be joining their live televised rendition of The Wiz this coming Fall and therefore, I thought it would be nice to revisit one of Stephanie's classic jams.

"Never Knew Love Like This Before" is a Grammy Award-winning hit song written by James Mtume and Reggie Lucas and recorded by American R&B singer Stephanie Mills. The song is the second and final single from Mills' 1980 album, Sweet Sensation.

The song became Mills' biggest hit on the Billboard Pop Singles Chart, where it peaked at No. 6, outperforming her previously highest charting single, "Whatcha Gonna Do with My Lovin'", which peaked at No. 22. The single was also successful on the R&B and Adult Contemporary charts, peaking at No. 12 and No. 5, respectively. On the UK Singles Chart, the track climbed to No. 4.

With that said, you can take a hopefully second listen to "Never Knew Love Like This Before" below and Enjoy!
