A Conversation With The O'Jays

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome The O’Jays for an intimate conversation with moderator Scott Goldman, reflecting on the group’s extensive music career and the release of their new album, The Last Word. With over 50 years of touring and some of music’s most beloved hits under their belt, The O’Jays remain one of today’s seminal music acts. The group scored their first number 1 in 1972 with “Backstabbers.” Subsequently, they had other various chart-topping pop and R&B singles including “Love Train,” “Put Your Hands Together,”  “For The Love of Money,”  “I Love Music,”  “Darlin’ Darlin’ Baby (Sweet, Tender, Love),” “Livin’ For The Weekend,” and  “Use Ta Be My Girl.” This success propelled The O’Jays to be the first black vocal group to perform in arenas throughout America during the 70s and 80s. Eddie Levert Sr. and Walter Williams Sr. as well as Eric Nolan Grant, who joined the group in 1995, continue to thrill fans today. Throughout their career, The O'Jays have achieved 10 Gold albums, 9 Platinum albums, and 10 #1 hits. In 2005, The O'Jays were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. They were inducted into the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2005 and honored with BET's Life Time Achievement Award in 2009. In 2013, they were inducted into The Official R&B Music Hall of Fame.
