Maybe Tomorrow (4:45)

Cover of The Ultimate Collection

From The Ultimate Collection and 33 other releases

“Maybe Tomorrow” was a hit single recorded by American soul family quintet The Jackson 5, in 1971.

The ballad was originally supposed to have been sung (possibly in a different production) by Sammy Davis, Jr. but for various reasons, the entertainer could not get on the schedule to do the song and the song was then given to the Jackson 5. It peaked at #3 on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles chart, and at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Maybe Tomorrow” was included on the Jackson 5’s album of the same title, and was later sampled by rapper Ghostface Killah on his 1996 song “All That I Got Is You”.

    This version sounds unmixed & mastered. Maybe this is the original master.

    I had no idea that they were the ones who did this song. It's so beautiful and I totally remember the Ghostface Killah song which sampled this one. Such a beautiful song.

    Begging my mom if I could grow an Afro. Wishing for bell bottom pants or a wide collar shirt like the J5 had. Yeah I did get them by 1973. Thank You Michael for the memories and the Soundtrack to my life.
