Friday Flashback: Raw Silk

Hailing from New York City, Raw Silk, consisting on vocalists Jessica Cleaves, Sybil Thomas and Tenita Jordan, released their dance hit "Do It To The Music" on West End Records in 1982. Having charted at #5 on the Billboard dance charts here in the U.S., the tune was more successful in the U.K. "Do It To The Music" has also been sampled in several Hip-Hop records, taking mainly from the adlibs from the chorus. Lead singer Jessica Cleaves has also recorded and performed with Earth, Wind & Fire and Parliament-Funkadelic.
