Midlands-based soul singer Jaki Graham established herself as one of the most popular R&B and dance artists in the U.K. with a string of hits in the '80s. Among her chart entries were Top Ten placings for "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "Round and Round," and "Set Me Free." Graham also made appearances on releases by other artists, lending her sensual vocals to tracks by UB40, Kim Wilde, Paul Hardcastle, and Afrika Bambaataa. Despite her star status in the U.K., Graham's success in the States has failed to crossover from the dance audience, although she has had success with club audiences, including scoring a massive hit with "Ain't Nobody." Her output beyond the '80s has been neither as prolific or high-profile, with many of her albums seeing release only in Japan, where she maintains huge popularity.
