Jump To It is the thirty-first studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, produced by Luther Vandross and released in the summer of 1982.

This disc gave Aretha her tenth #1 R&B album – at the time it was the all-time record. It enjoyed a seven-week run at #1 on Billboard's R&B albums chart and also reached #23 on Billboard's main album chart. It was hailed as a comeback album, given that it provided Aretha with her first Gold-certified disc and Top 40 song since Sparkle in 1976.

The title track, "Jump to It", was Aretha's first Pop Top 40 hit since 1976 and her first #1 R&B hit since 1977's "Break It To Me Gently". The infectious song was nominated for a Grammy Award. The album itself received an American Music Award for Best Soul Album.

Commercial performance

On February 1, 1983, "Jump to It" was certified Gold by the RIAA. Aretha was presented her framed Gold album in Detroit by her long-time friends The Four Tops. The album eventually sold 650,000 copies according to web site GreasyLake.com.

In 2005, Patrick Alavi released "Come To Me" which used a Sample of "Jump To It".
