SoulBounce Salutes The Original ‘Body’ Rockers


By a show of hands, how many of us remember what we were doing ten years ago today? Yeah, me neither. However, I’m sure that R&B supergroup LSG, a.k.a. Levert/Sweat/Gill, would be able to fondly recall January 17, 1998, as that date commemorates their record seventh (and final) week atop the R&B charts with their sizzling debut single “My Body.”

The track, produced by Darrell “Delite” Allamby, was an ode to “grown and sexy” love-making, complete with synthesized voices, fake phone numbers and the first time a group has ever successfully groaned in three-part harmony (no, “Uhh Ahh” by Boyz II Men doesn’t count…there were four of them).

So we here at SoulBounce would like to raise glasses to Gerald (R.I.P.), Keith and Johnny on this, the tenth anniversary of an achievement that not only injected R&B with a much-needed dose of maturity in the late ’90s, but also gave countless men a brand new pick-up line (“My body all over your body, girl… what’s up?”)!

Here’s to the original “Body” rockers. May you play on in iPods, strip clubs and bedrooms forever.
