Lucy Pearl was an R&B supergroup formed in 1999, as the brainchild of former Tony! Toni! Toné! member Raphael Saadiq, A Tribe Called Quest DJ and producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad and D’Angelo. However, D’Angelo backed out of the group due to scheduling conflicts.[After D’Angelo backed out Raphael came up with the idea of adding Dawn Robinson (of En Vogue) to the group. They released their self-titled debut album Lucy Pearl in 2000.

On this day in music history: November 22, 1975 - “That’s The Way (I Like It)” by KC & The Sunshine Band hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 2 weeks (non-consecutive), also topping the R&B singles chart for 1 week on November 29, 1975. Written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, it is the second consecutive number one single for the R&B band from Hialeah , FL. Issued as the follow up to “Get Down Tonight”, it will take off even faster than its predecessor. The song’s trademark “ah-ha, ah-ha” refrain was originally recorded as sensual moans and groans, but is given a more “benign” vocalization when the vocals are re-recorded. Entering the Hot 100 at #50 on October 25, 1975, it will rocket to the top of the chart just four weeks later. “That’s The Way” will hold the top spot for one week, then be bumped from the pole position by the Silver Convention’s “Fly Robin Fly” for three weeks. Slipping back as far as #4, the single will regain its bullet (signifying upward chart momentum), leaping back to the number one spot for one more week on December 20, 1975. One of the quintessential songs of the Disco Era, “That’s The Way (I Like It)” has been covered several times over the years by different artists, including versions by Giorgio Moroder, Dead Or Alive and by The Spin Doctors and Biz Markie for the film “Space Jam”.
