Aretha Franklin: Until You Come Back To Me

Aretha Franklin made a significant change in her musical direction in the early seventies, as she moved away from the funky southern soul sound that she'd become famous for, and moved toward a smoother, more sophisticated sound. No song personified that change better than "Until You Come Back To Me," a huge hit for Aretha in 1974.

Until You Come Back To Me" was co-written by Stevie Wonder. He didn't release his version of it until 1977. However, Aretha Franklin recognized it for the hit it could become much earlier, and as usual, she was right.

"Until You Come Back To Me" hit Number 1 on Billboard's R&B chart, Number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 music chart, and was chosen by Billboard as the Number 11 song for the entire year. "Until You Come Back To Me" peaked at Number 3 on the Hot 100 chart allowed Aretha to become the first artist to have a song peak at every number in Billboard's Top 10, from Number 10 to Number 1, an honor she shares now with Marvin Gaye and Madonna.

"Until You Come Back To Me," and "Ain't No Way," are two of Aretha's million selling hits.
