The Flashback Fridays For 3/2/18: Johnny Kemp - Just Got Paid (1988)

It's the return of the Flashback Fridays, and it's a look back 30 years ago at this time (when I was definitely in the crib, literally). Before Montell Jordan took the "Friday night" theme song title (and long before Rebecca Black was even a human being), it was this sir whose song definitely was the #1 Friday day theme.

 He's up above now, but Johnny Kemp definitely will always be remembered as the New Jack Swing Era. It's "Just Got Paid", this week's Flashback Friday choice.

The Flashback Fridays #1: The Roots ft Musiq Soulchild - Break You Off (2002)

In wake of Black Thought once again producing one of the best a cappella freestyles ever in music at HOT 97 on Wednesday, take it back 15 years ago to this still smooth effort from his crew and fellow Philly standout Musiq Soulchild.

It's "Break You Off" , the first Flashback Friday selection this week.

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 9/29/17: Alicia Keys - No One (2007)

Besides the two main singles from "Songs in A Minor" debut, this for me is still the best overall track from her. With her and Dirty Harry doing the great crafting of words and beat, this one from a decade ago at this time is still so superb. And it definitely took away from how stale some of her tracks have been since then.

So, your first Flashback Friday choice from this week, it's Alicia Keys with "No One" from 2007, from her third album "As I Am."

More from The Whole Delivery, stay tuned.

The Flashback Fridays For 8/25/17: Nelly ft Kelly Rowland - Dilemma (2002)

This week's first Flashback Friday choice this week is a look back 15 summers ago to the top song that summer.

In fact, it truly was the summer of Nelly that year. Both "Dilemma" and "Hot In Here" represented a 14, FOURTEEN, straight week reign at the top of the Billboard charts overall. And it is still Kelly Rowland's biggest single ever.

In the end, "Dilemma" spent 10 weeks as #1 and was the biggest hit of 2002, along with Ashanti's "Foolish."

Patti LaBelle's own classic "Love, Need and Want You" of course was the sample for this Ryan Browser produced sample. So, your first Flashback Friday choice this week, it's Nelly and Kelly with the 2002 memorable hit, "Dilemma."

The Flashback Fridays #2 For 8/18/17: SWV - Right Here (1992) (25th Year Anniversary)

Sunday will be the 25th anniversary of the Teddy Riley produced "Right Here" for SWV, and the debut single for the classic early 90s R&B group.

Now though the remix, sampling Michael Jackson timeless "Human Nature" hit produced by Quincy Jones, was the better song and had much bigger success, this was the introduction of SWV to the world. The rest is history.

So, you're second Flashback Friday selection, it's the 25th anniversary of SWV's "Right Here."

The Flashback Fridays #1 For 8/18/17: Clipse - Gridin' (2002)

15 summers ago, Pusha T and Malice debuted with Pharrell and Chad Hugo making the memorable beat that some of you all banged on cafeteria tables with.

And with Virginia obviously in the news over the last week for other insane reasons, this one is a good one always for the state. It's of course "Gridin," the first single for this brotherly duo no longer doing tracks together. Your first Friday Flashback for this week.

The Flashback Fridays #2 For 8/4/17: Plies feat T. Pain - Shawty (2007)

From 10 summers ago, this Fort Myers, Florida native made his music debut with this quality summer song. But of course, it was the bigger Florida native, Sir Tallahassee T-Pain, who shined more on this "Drumma boy" produced track with a summer harmony similar to his own debut, "I'm Sprung", in 2005.

Piles actually did put together some rhymes, although they were the elementary, "having the same rhyme pattern for almost an entire verse" type of rhymes. But anyway, it's the second Flashback Friday choice this week, it's Plies feat T-Pain with "Shawty."
