Songfacts®:

  • Multi Grammy Award winning legends Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis produced this track, which is from British soul and R&B singer Beverley Knight's sixth studio album, 100%. She gushed to The Daily Mirror September 4, 2009: "Extraordinary guys. They were very down to earth and they knew how to wring the best vocal performance out of me. They knew when less was more. When I sang 'Every Step,' Terry said, 'That was great, but now sing it with a smile.' I was happy and relaxed, but he meant an actual physical smile, which pulls out different tones in my voice. No one ever told me that before or worked with me like that before. I was exhausted by the end of it, but it was an amazing experience."
  • This song was released as a free download on July 6, 2009 for two weeks.
