"Muscles" is a 1982 soul single written and produced by Michael Jackson and performed by American R&B/soul singer Diana Ross.
The single reached number ten on the pop singles chart (holding this position for 6 weeks) and number four on the R&B singles chart upon its release and was the first single from her gold-certified album, Silk Electric. The song, which was named after Jackson's pet snake and was written for Ross and her "desire" for a muscle-bound lover, also gave Ross her twelfth and latest Grammy nomination for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance.
The song was recorded in 1997 by producer/DJ Peter Rauhofer recording as Club 69 and was a featured single on the Club 69 album Style. The vocals on this version of "Muscles" are performed by singer-songwriter, Suzanne Palmer.
Lil Kim sampled "Muscles" for her rap "Diamonds" but it was not included in the final cut of her album The Notorious K.I.M. Young Jeezy also sampled "Muscles" for the title track of his album The Inspiration.

Music Video


The single's music video featured Ross in bed dreaming of muscular men. In one scene she is shown floating through the air over a landscape which turns out to be a man's musclebound body.[1] The video features a young Gil Birmingham (Twilight saga film series) in one of his first-ever media appearances.
