Color Me Badd
With smooth four-part R&B harmonies, an airbrushed image out of a Bennetton ad, and slick dance moves swiped from another dimension, Color Me Badd overran MTV and pop radio in 1991. The Oklahoma City outfit nabbed its big break when "I Wanna Sex You Up" gained the leadoff single spot on the NEW JACK CITY soundtrack. The sugary, highly suggestive song swiftly became inescapable and was followed by a pair of Billboard number-ones, the bilingual ballad "I Adore Mi Amor," and the bubblegum Motown "All 4 Love." While the band would never recapture the level of fame of its glory year, they would continue to chart into the late ‘90s, breaking up with the decade's end.
