Über Full Force
A Brooklyn-based production and songwriting crew, Full Force got their first hit in 1984 with UTFO's classic jam "Roxanne Roxanne." The following year, looking for a female answer to New Edition, they organized the group Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam. They also began releasing albums of their own, delivering quirky love raps set to self-produced tracks. Although they put out six albums over ten years, Full Force saw greater success as producers, working with the likes of Samantha Fox, Sting, Selena, and the Backstreet Boys.
