Throwback Thursday: Lucy Pearl – “Dance Tonight”
In 2000, the music gods blessed us with a supergroup called Lucy Pearl. The group included Raphael Saadiq from Tony! Toni! Toné, Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest, and Dawn Robinson from En Vogue.
Within months of the group’s debut, there was a lineup change — Dawn was replaced by singer Joi. And within months of Joi’s recruitment, the group disbanded. The music gods giveth and taketh away.
The consolation for Lucy Pearl’s short-lived existence is that they blessed us with timeless R&B. Their debut single, “Dance Tonight,” slaps as hard today as it did 19 years ago, and is easily one of the grown-and-sexiest songs ever. Click play.
