Hall Of Fame: The Black Flames


An R&B trio signed to Def Jam (likely by Russell Simmons rather than Rick Rubin), this New Jack trio made their first appearance in 1987 on the Less Than Zero soundtrack (produced by Def Jam) which also included LL Cool J’s “Going Back to Cali” and Public Enemy’s “Bring The Noise.” They released only one album entitled The Black Flames featuring a New Jack remake of the hit song “Watching You”, and a second single entitled “Dance With Me.” In sound, the Black Flames were a lot like New Jack-era Tony Toni Tone – the lead singer sounding very much like Raphael Saadiq.
