"Groove Me" is a song recorded by R&B singer King Floyd. Released from his eponymous album in late 1970, it was a crossover hit, spending four non-consecutive weeks at number-one on Billboard's Best Selling Singles Chart and peaking at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The song was recorded and produced by Wardell Quezergue at Malaco Record's Jackson, Mississippi recoding studios during the same session as another Quezergue-produced song, Jean Knight's "Mr. Big Stuff. "Groove Me" was originally released as the B-side to Floyd's "What Our Love Needs" on the Malaco subsidiary Chimneyville. When New Orleans disc jockey George Vinnett started playing the B-side, the song begin meriting attention, and as the record emerged as a local smash, Atlantic Records scooped up national distribution rights.
