Throwback: Jermaine Jackson-Do What You Do

Jermaine Jackson had just started recording with Arista Records when his eponymous 10th studio album (marketed as Dynamite in the U.K.) was released in 1984. Jackson’s voice was soothing as he sang about being betrayed by a lover in “Do What You Do” which was the album’s second single. The video took its storyline from The Godfather and the supermodel Iman co-starred in the clip before her famous appearance in Michael Jackson’s “Remember The Time” video. “Do What You Do” was the b-side to Jermaine Jackson’s “Tell Me I’m Not Dreaming” collaboration with his brother Michael. The collection also has Jackson singing the duet “Take Good Care Of My Heart” with Whitney Houston before she hit stardom. The successful collaborations continued with Pia Zadora and their song “When The Rain Begins To Fall”  that had its video attached Zadora’s film Voyage Of The Rock Aliens. The album was Jackson’s second most popular and managed to reach Gold status. There have been three reissues of the 10th album domestically in 2005 and 2012 and a Japanese one in 2009. Jermaine Jackson independently released his 14th album, I Wish You L.O.V.E. in 2012. He has toured with his brothers Tito, Jackie and Marlon as The Jacksons since 2015.
