20 Years Ago the No. 1 Dance Song in the Country Was …

image

"Show Me Love" by Robin S.!  Exactly 20 years ago, the club hit peaked at number one on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Play Chart.  

Don’t you just love the video?  A ’90s kind of gal in a hot red dress — clearly sexually frustrated — trying to keep her virtue in the club, but by the end … she found someone to show her love!  Plus, you can’t forget Robin’s bouquet of hair with one track flowing down the side of her face like a melted vinyl record.  Oh!  And the drag queens lip-synching for their lives - shout out to my old neighbor who yelled at the trade, “Those is men!  And don’t act like you knew ‘cause you already said they was fine!”

The Hip-Hop Closet and the Shaming of Mister Cee

imageCheck out my latest article for theGrio.com on the Mister Cee controversy.

"If Cee is gay, bisexual or doesn’t believe in labels, I know many like him: A 46 year-old black man who didn’t grow up with the affirmations of today, plus the restraints of hip-hop. Twenty years older than Frank Ocean, over a decade older than Jason Collins; Cee and many in his generation do not possess the tools to identify under the LGBTQ umbrella. Mister Cee is imprinted to be closeted."
