"I Want to Know What Love Is" is a power ballad recorded by the British-American rock band Foreigner. The song hit #1 in both the UK and the U.S. and is their most successful single. It remains, alongside "Urgent" and "Waiting for a Girl Like You", one of the band's best known songs. Written by Mick Jones and produced by him and Alex Sadkin, it was the first single released from the album Agent Provocateur (1984). The song features backing vocals from the New Jersey Mass Choir (of the GMWA), Dreamgirls star Jennifer Holliday, and the Thompson Twins. The choir appears in the song's music video. "I Want to Know What Love Is" reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on January 13, 1985, and stayed there for three weeks. It reached the top of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 on February 2, 1985, where it stayed for two weeks. It was Foreigner's first and only Pop chart-topper in either country, although the band had four #1 Mainstream Rock and one #1 Adult Contemporary radio hits in the U.S. Soon after Foreigner's single topped the charts, the New Jersey Mass Choir released its own, similar-sounding version of the song, on an album also titled I Want to Know What Love Is. Their single peaked at #37. In 2004 "I Want to Know What Love Is" was voted #476 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. In 2006 this song was included on VH1's program "Top 100 Songs of the 80's". The song is playing in the Gene Simmons sex tape that surfaced in 2008.

While people may need two hands to hold the device in their hands, it still seems to be taking the spotlight when it comes to Apple products, which brings up the idea that it competes with it’s own sister product, the 7.9 inch iPad Mini.
