“Let’s Stay Together” is the signature song of what legendary soul singer?
“Let’s Stay Together” stands as a timeless masterpiece by the legendary soul singer Al Green. Rolling Stone magazine ranked it as the 60th greatest song of all time on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Two weeks after its release, it reached #1 on the R&B charts and went on to reach the coveted #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
