The album which was both written and produced by Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards of the band Chic includes four classic hit singles: the anthemic title track, "He's the Greatest Dancer", "Lost in Music", and "Thinking of You", all four of which have been sampled, remixed, and reissued through the 80's, 90's and 2000's.

"We Are Family" is one of two albums produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers in 1979, the other being Chic's second album "C'est Chic" including hit singles "Le Freak" and "I Want Your Love".
