“I Wanna Be Where You Are” is a song written by Arthur “T-Boy” Ross and Leon Ware for Michael Jackson, who took the song to number 7 in Cash Box and number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached number 2 on the U.S. R&B singles chart in 1972. His third straight Top 10 Pop hit during his early solo career with Motown. It was also the first collaboration between Ware and Ross, the younger brother of legendary superstar Diana Ross. This song would be one of Jackson’s most covered songs, by singers including Zulema, Marvin Gaye, Willie Hutch, Jason Weaver and later The Fugees. Ware and Ross also penned the classic Marvin Gaye hit, “I Want You” several years afterwards.

    A good song by The Jackson 5. . Perhaps not as remembered as some of their others songs, but a goof song nonetheless.
