Jean Terrell album

I Had to Fall in Love is the title of the only solo album released by former Supremes lead singer, Jean Terrell. Produced by Bobby Martin, the nine-track R&B/Soul album was released in 1978 on the A&M label. The album was completed five years after she left the Supremes and when it was finished, promotion was stopped completely because of Terrell's strict religious beliefs that prevented her from promoting the album in a way that she did not favor. In 2006, an independent label re-released the album in CD format.
