Best known for their elegant vocal style, After 7 very quickly emerged as one of the premier groups on the Pop and R&B music scene. Their 1989 debut album, ‘After 7’ produced by L.A. Reid and Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds (Kevon’s brother), sold platinum plus and yielded two gold singles. “Ready or Not” climbed the billboard charts to the #1 position on the R&B chart while the smash single “Can’t Stop” topped out at #6 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop charts. The first release from the album, ‘Heat of the Moment’ was a top ten single on the Urban charts and garnered a solid position on the Pop charts and opened the door to a host of awards and major tours. After 7 has a new album out now, called “Timeless”.
Case’s solo career took off in 1996 with the release of ‘Touch Me, Tease Me’ (with rapper Foxy Brown and R&B Singer Mary J. Blige) from ‘The Nutty Professor’ soundtrack. His self-titled debut album, “Case” soon followed. Case followed the success of his first album with the release of ‘Personal Conversation’ in 1999. The album featured the hits “Happily Ever After” and “Faded Pictures”, which featured R&B singer Joe. “Open Letter”, which was released in 2001, was Case’s most well-known album. “Missing You” hit #1 on the R&B charts and #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. Later that year, he appeared on rapper Ja Rule’s hit, “Livin It Up”. In 2014, he signed with eOne and later released his sixth studio album, “Heaven’s Door”.
Total was one of the signature acts of Sean Combs’ Bad Boy Records imprint during the 1990’s. The group consisted of members Kima Raynor, Keisha Spivey (Epps) and Pamela Long. Total is best known for their hits “What You Want” (featuring Mase), “Kissing You”, “Can’t You See (featuring The Notorious B.I.G.), and “What About Us” and “Trippin”, both featuring Missy Elliott. Long was also featured on The Notorious B.I.G.’s hit song “Hypnotize”, singing the chorus.
