"More, More, More" was the signature song of Andrea True, who performed under the name "The Andrea True Connection".

The song was recorded in Jamaica where True, an adult film actress, had been appearing in a television commercial. An attempted coup prevented her from leaving the country with her wages from the commercial. Resourcefully True called on Gregg Diamond to come down to Jamaica to write and record the song with her. Buddah Records originally released the song only to discos in the winter of 1976. The popularity of "More, More, More" was immense. Widespread listener interest convinced Buddah to release the single commercially in the spring. The song rose to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number five on the UK Singles Chart.

"More, More, More" has been revived in recent years by its usage in television promotional advertisements, such as for American television series Sex and the City. British pop star Samantha Fox covered it in a disco medley on her 1991 album Just One Night.

It was also released as a remixed single by UK girl group Bananarama from their 1993 album Please Yourself. In 1999 Canadian band Len sampled the instrumental break in "More, More, More" and used it as the backdrop for their top-ten single "Steal My Sunshine". British singer Rachel Stevens sang a cover of the song, called "More More More" (without commas) in 2004.
