Easy – The Commodores

Another oldie but classic. Motown, aka these days, Universal Music

“Easy” is a song by Commodores for the Motown label, from their fifth studio album, Commodores. Group member Lionel Richie wrote “Easy” with the intention of it becoming another crossover hit for the group given the success of a previous single, “Just to Be Close to You”, which spent two weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot Soul Singles chart (now known as the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart) and peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1976
