We are proud to share the release of "Partners" which is a remastered album originally recorded in 1979 by Scherrie Payne & our own Susaye Greene on Motown Records label.
Both talented singers were members of the legendary group "The Supremes" in 1977 and share songwriting and associate producer credit for the album.
Susaye traveled with musical genius Ray Charles, as a Raelet and featured vocalist, and she fronted New Birth's first million-seller "Until It's Time For You To Go," which still has a strong R&B and Hip-Hop following today.
She joined Stevie Wonder's Wonderlove and sang a duet with him: "Joy Inside My Tears" on his "Songs In The Key of Life" album. She began a long, ongoing writing association with him. Together they penned many tunes, including "I Can't Help It," which appeared on Michael Jackson's hit album "Off The Wall" and has been covered and sampled numerous times-as De La Soul's hit "Breakadawn;" as Portrait's "Here We Go Again," which received a B.M.I. pop award for being one of the most performed songs of the year; on Mary J. Blige's "Mary" as "Sexy."
Susaye was the last member of the Supremes signed to Motown Records, with Mary Wilson and Scherrie Payne.
Susaye and Scherrie recorded an album for Motown called "Partners," and produced, wrote and arranged all of the songs, which is out now on cd, remastered for the 1st time.
Susaye recently acted in a recurring role in director Michael Ajakwe's new tv series "Basketball Wife" and she also appeared in "20 Feet From Stardom", which has won an Academy Award for best documentary.
