“Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” is a disco song performed by R&B duo McFadden & Whitehead from their debut album, McFadden & Whitehead. They wrote and produced this along with keyboard player Jerry Cohen. Released from their self-titled debut album in 1979, the song spent a week at number one on the R&B singles chart. It also proved to be a successful crossover hit, peaking at number thirteen on the Billboard Hot 100, and reached number 5 in the UK. The single also made it to number ten on the disco charts. The bass hook was played by Philadelphia International Records house musician Jimmy Williams. The song eventually sold over 2 million copies and went platinum. In 1979 New York radio station WBLS 107.5 fm used this song as their Summer Anthem. This was a creative feature that was done by radio personality and also program director Frankie Crocker when the station became number one in arbitron radio ratings that year.
McFadden & Whitehead would revisit the song in their 1984 single, “Ain’t No Stoppin’ (Ain’t No Way).”
