Stevie Wonder is questioning why no artist has given his soul single 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)' a country go.
Country music seems to take over the current interest of artists from various genre. After Beyonce Knowles reportedly wants to record a country album, it's Stevie Wonder's turn to demand a rendition of his hit in the genre.
Wonder predicted if somebody wants to give his 1970 song 'Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)' a country go, it will be a huge hit. He said, "I think the song could be a country hit. Get your country on. Tell somebody they need to cut that song as a country hit."
The single, that was originally played in soul vibe, has been covered by various artists such as Human Nature, pop band Blue, and Pepper Mashay who turned it to a club dance hit.
Wonder is serving his first U.S. tour in more than a decade that is extended through fall. According to Billboard, he is also working on a new album titled 'The Gospel Inspired by Lula' which is slated to be released in January, in honor of his late mother's birthday.
