Rick James proved his production skills by helping Mary Jane Girls deliver a one-hit-wonder and range of sensational funky tracks that the world will forever love. His protégées released “In My House” in ’84, and the post-disco-sound has been a Motown favorite ever since.
Funk legend and unmistakable soul icon Rick James put together the group called the Mary Jane Girls, and he both wrote and produced the epic hit “In My House”. Within no time, it reached number three on the R&B chart while charting number one as a dance track.
The Mary Jane Girls’ debut album hit in 1983, but it was the arrival of their second album, Only Four You, that this unforgettable funky song arose.
Not only did this track stay at number one atop Billboard’s Dance Club Songs in 1985 for two weeks, but it reached the top ten on the Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts.
