Here's a little known factoid, the song was written in 1983 by Marcus Thompson, Alex Hill, Michael Marshall and recorded as a cassette demo tape. Get Timex Social Club songs for your IPOD! The demo was shopped to various music artists, producers, record lables and even garnered local airplay at the college radio station of the University of california at Berkeley: KALX 90.7FM before being heard by producer Jay King in December of 1985. By January 1986, the group enetered the studio to record RUMORS in a marathon 20+ hour recording session.

Rumors hit the airwaves in April of 1986 and was first shunned by Urban Radio due to it's brash sound and the fact that it was on an independent black owned record labled: Jay Records . Since the group hailed from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay area, they promoted it highly in their hometown and hoped that the local Urban stations would play their hit, none did.
By May of 1986, a young program director named
Terri Avery of KKDA 104FM in Dallas Fort Worth heard RUMORS and added it to the stations playlist and it caught fire! Other Urban Radio stations  across the country took notice and followed suit by adding RUMORS as well.

Rumors then entered the Billboard HOT BLACK/R&B  Singles Charts, and on July 13th of 1986 reached the number #1 spot and held there for 2 weeks. Rumors also hit Billborard's Top 40/POP charts and broke the top 10, by reaching the #8 spot.
