"Do I Do" is a song written and performed by American singer and songwriter Stevie Wonder, first released in 1982 on the album Stevie Wonder's Original Musiquarium I. The single peaked at #2 on the soul chart and peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. On the US dance chart, "Do I Do" went to number one for two weeks. Overseas, it reached #10 in the UK.
The album version of the song is ten and a half minutes long. It features a rare example of Wonder rapping near the end of the track. Dizzy Gillespie is also featured on the track with a trumpet solo. Both of these are removed from the single edit of the song (some longer edits retain the Gillespie solo but leave out the rapping). The song is noted by bassists for its intricate bassline, played by Nathan Watts. A commercial success, it was the recipient of three Grammy Award nominations including for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.
