It gives me GREAT pleasure to post about a group that I have been a huge fan of since they burst on the scene 29 years ago (whaaaaat….I was 17 back then) and when I hear this group it takes me back to a time when music was music and artist were groomed to perfection. With hits like: Ain’t My Type Of Hype, Roxanne, Roxanne, All Cried Out and so many more. You know who the group is….YEP you guessed it right, it’s Full Force!!!
Earhustle411 had the pleasure of meeting this fantastic but humble group back in May of this year. They put on a performance that I shall never forget. These God-fearing gentlemen have not missed a beat in 29 years. I can say even though I was in awe and grateful to be in their presence, it was Paul Anthony who said it was his pleasure to be in our midst. These guys were so laid back, humble and did I neglect to mention FUNNY, we had a blast interviewing them. Check it out below:
I am so excited for this awesome group of real-life brothers; original members Bowlegged Lou, Paul Anthony and B-Fine and the group now include their cousins Shy Shy, Curt T-T and Baby Gerry.
Bowlegged Lou told Earhustle411 that “the inspiration for the album titled “Full Force: With Love From Our Friends” was inspired by Quincy Jones’ Back On The Block and that the album was dedicated to his brother Paul Anthony and his triumph over his battle with cancer”. This amazing album is jam-packed with great music and collaborations with some of the music, TV and film industry’s best of the best like Faith Evans, Raphael Saadiq, Tevin Campbell, Naturi Haughton, Omari Hardwick, Blair Underwood and Malcolm Jamal Warner just to name a few.
There’s a few remakes on the new album; “All Cried Out” with Tisha Campbell-Martin on the lead vocals, “All I Have To Give” (formerly recorded by The Backstreet Boys) but produced by Full Force with Slim of 112, Steve Russell of Troop and Lil G of Silk making things happen with the track. Full Force even has reunited with Roxanne Shante for a super charged but classic remake of Roxanne, Roxanne (The New Chapter). There’s one track on the album named “I Feel Good, I Look Good, I’m God Good” that will inspire every man, woman and child every time they hear it. Earhustle411 was privileged to have heard it in May and trust when I say Paul, B.Fine & Lou were 100% serious and on point when they performed the song. Just watching the crowd be receptive to it and singing the hook, was nothing short of amazing.
When I say this new album is super “Bad A” to simply write about the new project does not give it any justice, you have to hear it for yourself. The album is available on iTunes and Amazon for purchase. I have listened to it 5 times already and I KNOW that this album is going to change lives.
Earhustle411 wishes Full Force the best of love and success with this new project.
