Easy Lover - Phil Collins and Philip Bailey - Official Music Video 1,984
June 13, 2011
"Easy Lover" is a song written by Philip Bailey, Phil Collins, and Nathan East, and credited to both singers Bailey and Collins when released as a single. The song appeared on Bailey's solo album Chinese Wall. Collins has also performed the song in his live shows and it appears on his 1,990 album Serious Hits... Live!, as well as his 1,998 compilation album, ...Hits.
The song was a hit in the UK, reaching #1 and staying there for four weeks and also reaching #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US. "Easy Lover" was very successful commercially, selling over a million copies. It has only been certified Gold -- not Platinum -- since the RIAA requirement for a Platinum single wasn't lowered to 1,000,000 units until 1,989.
"Easy Lover" won an MTV Video Music Award for Best Overall Performance in 1,985 and was Grammy nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance By A Duo or Group.
The lighthearted video for the song was filmed in London and features Bailey travelling by helicopter to meet Collins in a television studio.
