    That's just a guess though, lol. But it would explain the CYFI single/video not emerging until '81, and possibly the apparent lack of promotion in terms of TV appearances for the album as well.
    Actually, I just looked on the official Jacksons site (nifty little thing - never knew it existed) and apparently Lovely One was issued as an advance single in September and then album was released in October.

    Weird. Wikipedia was wrong this time!

    ^ Ah, interesting! Yeah, it's a great site. Some atrocious apostrophe misuse* by whoever's doing their copywriting though, lol.

    *Almost... one might say... a catapostrophe... I'll get my coat
