Let Me Tickle Your Fancy was released in July 1982 and would be Jermaine’s last and one of his most succesful ones for Motown. The album reached #9 in the R&B charts and #46 in the Pop charts in the U.S. Jermaine continued to be very much involved as a writer and producer of his album. All the songs on the album were produced by Jermaine and Berry Gordy. Berry Gordy and Hazel Gordy were the executive producers of the album. With the songs on Let Me Tickle Your Fancy, Jermaine’s music sounded more pop and even a bit of rock than his previous soulful albums.

Two singles were released in the U.S. from the album, the title track “Let Me Tickle Your Fancy” and “Very Special Part”. “Very Special Part” didn’t become a smash hit single peeking at #54 in the R&B charts, however “Let Me Tickle Your Fancy” featuring background vocals by Devo was a hit song getting to #5 in the R&B charts and #18 in the Pop charts.

A notable track on the album is “You Belong To Me”, a duet with female single Syreeta and the soulful track “You Moved A Mountain”, which was released as a single in the U.K.
