Released in mid-1987, “The Pleasure Principle” peaked at number fourteen on the Billboard Hot 100 that summer, becoming the only song released from Control to miss the top five of the chart. It nevertheless became her fifth chart-topper on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and her third on the Hot Dance Club Play. It was ranked number thirty-fourth on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs year-end chart of 1987. Outside the U.S. the single would be able to make it into the top forty in most markets, but failed to match the international success of Control’s previous singles.
