‘Off The Wall’ Single Makes U.S. Chart Debut
February 01, 1980

“Off The Wall,” the title track from Michael’s first solo album, made its U.S. chart debut in February 1980. It was the third single from the album, and peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song became Michael’s third Top 10 single from Off The Wall, which would later set a record as the first album by a solo artist to have four Top 10 singles. (Those singles were the #1 hits “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Rock With You,” followed by “Off The Wall” and “She’s Out Of My Life,” which both peaked at #10 on the pop charts.) “Off The Wall” also reached #5 on the R&B singles chart, where it held that position for three weeks.
