Singer Oliver Cheatham worked with fellow Detroiters Al Hudson and One Way and had a Top 40 R&B hit with the dance classic "Get Down Saturday Night" on MCA Records. Written by Cheatham and One Way multi-instrumentalist Kevin McCord, the jubilant "Get Down Saturday Night" made it to number 37 on the R&B chart in spring 1983. The follow-up single was the solid mid-tempo groover "Bless the Ladies," which featured a softly singing female chorus repeating: "bless the ladies / bless the girls / what would you do without us in this world." Cheatham's other charting singles included the Top 40 R&B hit "S.O.S," "Celebrate Our Love," and two duets with Jocelyn Brown: "Turn Out the Lights" and "Mindbuster." Other Oliver Cheatham singles were "Mama Said," "Put a Little Love in Your Heart," "Things to Make U Happy," and "Wish on a Star."
