Full Force Are Back With Love From Our Friends
Pioneering R&B/Hip-Hop Vocal Band/Production Team Return With Two Singles
Heralding New "True Skool All-Star" Album "All Cried Out (Feat. Tisha Campbell-Martin)" Unveiled During Live Visit To NYC's WBLS FM
FULL FORCE: WITH LOVE FROM OUR FRIENDS Due Later This Year
NEW YORK, March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Recording group Full Force partners with Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music Entertainment, to make their return to the airwaves with the arrival of not one but two new singles. The tracks herald the legendary R&B/hip-hop vocal band/production team's upcoming new album, Full Force: With Love From Our Friends, which is slated for release later this year.
First up is the electrifying ballad, "All Cried Out (Feat. Tisha Campbell-Martin)," which has just premiered at Urban AC radio outlets nationwide. Full Force debuted the new track – the original version of which was featured on 1985's RIAA platinum certified r&b, pop, hip-hop, dance classic, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force – with an exclusive visit to New York City's world famous 107.5 WBLS FM. Full Force surprised everyone when they brought Tisha Campbell-Martin herself into the radio station.
As if that weren't enough, a soaring second single from Full Force: With Love From Our Friends, entitled "I Feel Good, I Look Good, I'm God Good (Feat. Faith Evans with Sheila E and The God Good Choir & Children)," has also just impacted Gospel and Inspirational radio across the country, before hitting Urban AC outlets later this spring.
Full Force: With Love From Our Friends is an extraordinary celebration of Full Force's thirty years in the music industry, its broad range of sounds and styles spotlighting the Brooklyn-based group's still-distinctive approach towards contemporary r&b, soul, pop, hip-hop, and dance. Inspired by Quincy Jones' Back On The Block classic, this new album is dedicated to Full Force member Paul Anthony and his cancer champion bone marrow initiative. Paul says, "This project is my musical re-birth." (For more info please visit www.Palivelife.org)
The album is a self-described "True Skool All-Star Project" bringing together an astonishing line-up of special guests. In addition to the aforementioned Tisha Campbell-Martin, Faith Evans, and Sheila E, Full Force: With Love From Our Friends sees stellar contributions from fans, friends and longtime associates like Samantha Fox, Raphael Saadiq, Big Daddy Kane, Roxanne Shante, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Regina Belle, Cece Peniston, UTFO, Tevin Campbell, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, Malcolm Jamal Warner, Flavor Flav, Shanice, Howard Hewett, Force MDs, Blair Underwood, Vivica A. Fox, and many more.
Full Force – that is, Paul Anthony, Bowlegged Lou, Curt-T-T, J-R aka Shy Shy, Baby Gerry, and B-Fine – stands tall among the most talented and successful musical collectives in the annals of modern pop, r&b, hip-hop, and dance. Writers, producers, and performers all, the pioneering group is behind a seemingly endless string of genre-busting, groundbreaking classics, spanning UTFO's seminal "Roxanne Roxanne" and the blockbuster Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam with Full Force, collaborations with icons like James Brown, Selena, and Bob Dylan, and writing and/or producing major tracks by such superstars as Rihanna, Backstreet Boys, Justin Timberlake & Nsync, Jill Scott, The Black Eyed Peas, and countless others. Through it all, Full Force has remained a sensation all their own, offering up such top-charting R&B favorites as "Aint My Type of Hype, Alice I Want You Just For Me "Unselfish Lover," and "Temporary Love Thing," as well as starring roles as the big bad comedic bullies in the blockbuster film comedies House Party and House Party 2.
