"Isn't She Lovely" is a Non-Us single from his 1976 album Songs in the Key of Life. In it he celebrates the birth of his daughter, Aisha. The song, musically constructed over basic chord changes, is considered an example of the fusion of fundamental jazz and pop elements. Although the song was very popular and has received much radio airplay, it did not chart on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 because Stevie Wonder would not allow it to be released as a 45 RPM single despite being asked to do so by Motown. The song did make the Billboard Adult Contemporary charts as an "album cut", entering the AC Top 40 on January 8, 1977, staying there for five weeks and peaking at #23.
