Background: Released in 1983, Can’t Slow Down was the second solo album by Lionel Richie.

The album reached #1 on the U.S. and UK album charts. gave Can’t Slow Down a 4 1/2 star review:

On Can’t Slow Down, his second solo album, Lionel Richie ran with the sound and success of his eponymous debut, creating an album that was designed to be bigger and better. It’s entirely possible that he took a cue from Michael Jackson’s Thriller, which set out to win over listeners of every corner of the mainstream pop audience, because Richie does a similar thing with Can’t Slow Down — he plays to the MOR adult contemporary audience, to be sure, but he ups the ante on his dance numbers, creating grooves that are funkier, and he even adds a bit of rock with the sleek nocturnal menace of “Running With the Night,” one of the best songs here. He doesn’t swing for the fences like Michael did in 1982; he makes safe bets, which is more in his character. But safe bets do pay off, and with Can’t Slow Down Richie reaped enormous dividends, earning not just his biggest hit, but his best album.
