Lionel Richie’s Caribbean-Infused 80s Dance Hit Will Get You Moving

There’s something about Lionel Richie’s style that always seems to make the room smile, raising energy with upbeat vibes and music that you just can’t help but jam along to. ‘All Night Long (All Night)’ is exactly one of those songs.

Lionel Richie’s 1983 hit solo single ‘All Night Long (All Night)’ is a fun track carrying a distinct vibe influenced by his visits to the Caribbean. Its dance beat will get your feet moving, while Lionel’s smooth voice is filled with infectious positivity.

Even though this song carries a purposefully multicultural vibe, no ethnic African languages are actually spoken. Lionel Richie made up everything after not having the time to call in a translator or linguist to collaborate.

You may remember this video due to its massive popularity on MTV. It was Lionel Richie’s very first breakthrough onto the platform, appearing ever since.
