3 04 2009


From their Wikipedia:

“Soul for Real is an R&B group from Wheatley Heights, New York that released three albums in the 1990s, made up of brothers Andre (born April 4, 1974), Brian (born December 14, 1975), Christopher (born April 30, 1973), and Jason Dalyrimple (born May 10, 1980).

Formed in 1992, Soul for Real signed with Uptown Records and released their debut album Candy Rain on March, 28, 1995.Produced by Heavy D, Candy Rain’s first single was the album’s title track. The song hit #1 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 chart. Their second single, “Every Little Thing I Do”, reached #11 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and #17 on the Hot 100 chart.

Soul for Real’s second album, For Life, was produced by Sean Combs and released on September, 24, 1996. The album peaked at #119 on the Billboard 200, and the single album’s single “Love You So” peaked at #64 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs in 1997.”
