WAKE UP JAM: #LucyPearl ‘Dance Tonight’ [vid]



As we celebrate 18 years of ‘Love & Basketball’ the hit movie starring Sanaa Lathan and Omar Epps, remember the LEAD single from the soundtrack?  ‘Dance Tonight’ by supergroup Lucy Pearl was THE JAM of 2000!

The single reached number 36 on the Hot 100 and the UK singles chart. It was nominated to Best R&B Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group in the 43rd Grammy Awards (2001), but lost to Destiny Child’s “Say My Name”

Lucy Pearl was an R&B supergroup formed in 1999, as the brainchild of former Tony! Toni! Toné! member Raphael Saadiq and D’Angelo. However, D’Angelo backed out of the group due to scheduling conflicts. The other members of Lucy Pearl were Dawn Robinson (Of En Vogue) and Ali Shaheed Muhammad (formerly of A Tribe Called Quest).
