When Columbia Records released Cheryl Lynn's second album, In Love, in 1979, the Los Angeles native had a lot to live up to. Her 1978 smash Got to Be Real had become one of the definitive anthems of the Disco Era, reaching #1 on Billboard s R&B singles chart and #12 on Billboard s pop singles chart. On top of that, Star Love (another single from Lynn's self-titled debut album of 1978) was a #16 R&B hit in Billboard. So Columbia had high hopes for In Love. The album was a huge success and made it to #5 on Billboard's R&B albums chart and sold more than one million copies in the United States alone.
