All I Do Is Think Of You by Troop
Over the years, the song gained cult status as a ballad favorite for Jackson 5 fans and fans of Motown in general. In 1989, new jack swing/contemporary R&B group, Troop, recorded a cover version off their Attitude album. Released in the spring of 1990 as the second single from that album, their version, produced by Chuckii Booker, was sent to number one on the Billboard Hot R&B singles chart and peaked at number forty-seven on the Hot 100. Another cover came over a decade later by teen R&B singer Lil' Corey, whose version included sampled vocals from Michael Jackson from the original 1975 version. That same year, teen act B5 released a version similar to Troop's. Their version failed to make an impact on either the pop or R&B chart. The original version by the Jackson 5 has been sampled by the likes of J Dilla, who used a sample of the song on the album track, "Time - Donut of the Heart", on his critically-acclaimed 2006 album, Donuts. The Roots later used the same track under J Dilla's production for their album track, "Can't Stop This", from their Game Theory. Show video tutorial!
