On Awakening, Narada Michael Walden placed aside the jazz fusion leanings of his early albums in favor of a more radio-friendly sound. The strategy worked, with Walden having his first Top Ten R&B single, I Don't Want Nobody Else To Dance With You, which also charted number 47 on the pop charts in early 1979 and Awakening breaking into the R&B Top 15. The follow-up single, the mid-tempo groover Give Your Love a Chance featured grand arrangements by Patrick Adams. Walden displays his hyperkinetic drumming skills on They Want the Feeling.
