At this point in his career, Wonder had negotiated a contract with Motown records that gave him almost complete control over his recordings. He took advantage by making some very political songs like "You Haven't Done Nothin'
," but also recorded some lighter material, like this reggae-influenced song. The 1972 Johnny Nash hit "I Can See Clearly Now
" proved that reggae could work on the pop charts, and Wonder used a reggae groove again on his 1980 song "Master Blaster."
