Stevie Wonder had a No.1 hit with ‘Part Time Lover’ (1985)

“Part-Time Lover” is a single by American R&B singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder, from his 1985 album In Square Circle. The song reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, R&B, dance, becoming Wonder’s final number one hit to date. The song was also released as a special 12″ version. Lyrically, it tells the story of a man who is cheating on his wife with a mistress, only to find out in the end that his wife is cheating on him as well. “Part-Time Lover” also reached number three on the UK Singles Chart thanks in large part to a performance by Wonder on Top of the Pops in late 1985.
