Electricity by Midnight Star

Live Electro Funk Party!

Throughout the late 70's and early 80's, Atlantic Starr scored several hits on the R&B charts. However, significant crossover success (onto the pop charts) didn't come until halfway into the 80's, with the release of their “As The Band Turns” album, and the single "Secret Lovers."

By this time, the band had pared itself down to a quintet, consisting of the three Lewis brothers, Phillips, and Weathers. In 1987, the band solidified their pop success by scoring a number one hit with "Always," a slow jam off their album “All In The Name Of Love”. Following this success, Weathers left for a solo career, and she was replaced by Porcha Martin for the band's next album, 1988's “We‘re Moving Up“.

The band would continue to score hits on both the R&B and Pop charts into the early 90's. Their biggest hit of '90s was the Billboard number three hit "Masterpiece" in 1992.
