The O’Jays is an R&B group from Ohio who gained fame and recognition in the ’70s with their hits, “Back Stabbers,” “Love Train,” and “For the Love of Money.” Eddie Levert, Sr., Walter Williams, Sr., and Eric Nolan Grant rounded out the group, although there have been some lineup switches since the group was formed. In 2005, The O’Jays were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
