Background and impact[edit]

Although its sultry style recalls the Pointer Sisters' first American top-ten hit, the number two hit "Fire", "Slow Hand" was not written for the group; in fact John Bettis would state "the Pointer Sisters were the furthest [act] from [the composers'] minds."[1] However producer Richard Perry(Richard Perry quote:)"knew 'Slow Hand' [would be] an instant smash [hit]thatwould recapitulate and expand on the intimacy [of] 'Fire'."[2] Like "Fire"—which also featured Anita Pointer on lead—"Slow Hand" peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot , for 3 weeks, behind "Endless Love" by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie. "Slow Hand" reached that position in August when it also reached number seven on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. "Slow Hand" was ranked in the top 25 best singles of the year by The Village VoicePazz & Jop poll.[citation needed]

"Slow Hand" also afforded the Pointer Sisters international success, including the first appearance by the group in the top-ten on the UK Singles Chart.

"Slow Hand" was not the first song recorded by the sisters to have a country feel. In , the group wrote and recorded their second US top 20 hit "Fairytale".
