“Let’s Groove” is a 1981 song from the album Raise! by the R&B act Earth, Wind & Fire . According to the Let’s Groove Songfacts, the song is about losing yourself in the music, which in the hands of Maurice White is a more spiritual message than you might think. The groove can take you to a place of positivity and presence, and you can find it right on the dance floor.

The song peaked at #3 in the U.S. and in the UK. It also spent eight weeks at number one on the Hot Soul Singles chart in late-1981/early-1982 and was the second biggest R&B song of 1982. The music video of “Let’s Groove” was the first video ever to be played on Video Soul on BET.

“Let’s Groove” was nominated for a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group. The single sold over a million copies and it has been certified gold as up until the RIAA lowered the sales levels for certified singles in 1989, a Gold single equaled 1 million units sold.

The song has been sampled in the 1991 single “Skat Strut” by MC Skat Kat and the Stray Mob.The song was covered in 1995 by R&B band CDB in Australia, where it went platinum and went to #1 in New Zealand and also by Marcia Hines.
