    Lots of confusion here.

    That is not the original version of "Lady"

    Lionel Richie wrote & produced the song for Kenny Rogers who had a #1 hit with it in 1980.

    Sometime later, Richie did a Re-Make of it and it never hit the charts at all. I think it was just used as an album filler. It may have had more success in other countries, but not in the U.S.

    The song Timbaud mentions, is a totally different song.

    According to Wikipedia, there was one other cover of the song done by
    La Palabra (whoever that is ?) http://www.palabraonline.com/ .

    But there is one other extremely rare version I know of.

    My best guess is this....

    Wayne Wade - "Lady" (Reggae Version)
