“Mama’s Pearl” was a hit recording for the Jackson 5 in 1971.

It was one of six consecutive Top 5 singles for the legendary Motown, soul and funk group, reaching #2 when it was released and was written by the Corporation, a songwriting team that had helped the group score four consecutive #1 singles in a row for the group.

The song, while sung mostly by Michael featured cameo spots from brothers Jermaine and Jackie.

According to a Jackson biographer, “Mama’s Pearl” was originally called “Guess Who’s Making Whoopie (With Your Girlfriend)”. Producer Deke Richards reportedly had the lyrics and title changed to preserve Michael Jackson’s youthful, innocent image.
