Pretty Ricky biographyPretty Ricky Lyrics
Miami heat is nothing compared to Pretty Rickys scorching musical inferno. Not since the days of music legends like The Beatles, The Jackson 5 or more recently NSync has there been such a fevered pitch, creating hysteria and chaos when crowds glimpse brothers Spectacular, Pleasure, Slick Em, and Baby Blue. Through their frequent appearances in teen and music magazines, videos and on television combined with early participation on MySpace.com, Pretty Ricky quickly blossomed into a multi-faceted recording act whose style and imagery play a significant role in their development into superstars.
Pretty Ricky first exploded back in 1997, working the Miami music circuit with weekly jaw-dropping performances. Their father, Joseph Bluestar Smith, eventually had his boys getting Top 10 spins on regional radio, and in late 2004 Atlantic Records CEO Craig Kallman heard about the frenzy they were causing. Kallmans decision to sign Pretty Ricky was solidified the first night he saw them live, as he was nearly trampled by over 1,000 eager fans.
Over the course of just a few months, Pretty Ricky exploded. Their Atlantic debut, BLUE STARS, was one of the best selling albums of 2005 and spawned three hit singles, Grind With Me, Your Body, and Age Aint Nothing But a Number. The album quickly scored RIAA Gold status, and nearly broke the 1 million mark in just a year.
So, whats the plan for round 2? We didnt want to be in a position where the label would say, Give us four hot records, Baby Blue explains. We wanted to come up with an album full of singles...well never put fillers on our album. Pretty Ricky wanted to make a second splash in 2007 with an album just for the fans. They started online chats via prettyricky.com and even held a contest to help name the new album. Over 10,000 hopefuls submitted possible titles, but in the end, Pretty Ricky chose LATE NIGHT SPECIAL as their favorite.
Written and produced almost entirely by Pretty Ricky and the exclusive production team Music Royale Productions. LATE NIGHT SPECIAL makes its premier with the sensuous first single, On the Hotline. Its a sexy mid-tempo that captivates and tantalizes with an interpolation of Salt N Peppers classic Lets Talk About Sex, redefining what it means to talk about sex. Other cuts like the viral hit On the Rocks and the super sexy ballad Sticky and Slow will have fans singing along, while Soaking Wet and Up and Down We Go are signature Pretty Ricky hits with erotic yet gentle parodies that tickle listeners imagination.
Although Pretty Rickys first CD boasted big hits, LATE NIGHT SPECIAL seems destined to surpass their previous success. The growth and maturity of their lyrics, production, and vocals, coupled with Pretty Rickys innate ability to connect with virtually any market shows the diversity and expansion of these superstars. Forget everything else on the menu PRETTY RICKY is your one and only LATE NIGHT SPECIAL.
