Bit of a rainy Friday here in SLC, but its a Friday non the less. The weekend is here and I feel like this is a good way to start it off. I’ve been really diggin’ the 90’s New Jack flavor lately. The classic 90’s bass line always gets my head bobbin’. There was a lot of great music to come out of this era, and Portrait is a group you may or may not have heard of. I didn’t know them till about a month ago. Check them out and enjoy.
Check out my other post if you want to know how I find my music.

The group, which hailed from Los Angeles, California debuted in 1992 with a self-titled album riding on the end of the New Jack Swing era. The disc featured two hits on the charts: “Honey Dip” reached #18 on the R&B charts. The group’s second single, “Here We Go Again!” featured similar sounds and reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1992.
Throughout 1993 and 1994, Portrait could be heard lending their voices to various projects, appearing on the soundtracks to the movies, Addams Family Values and Blankman, as well as singing on the Black Men United song, “U Will Know” for the Jason’s Lyric Soundtrack. Portrait also providedbacking vocals on the Quincy Jones single “Slow Jam”, which featured Babyface and Tamia on lead vocals, in 1995. The song reached #68 on the Billboard Hot 100.
