The Reunited R&B Heroes Share a Sensual Visual, say “This that Quarantine-and-Chill Baby-Making Music!”
The first group to mix smooth R&B with rapid-fire rhymes, Pretty Ricky is one of the best-loved and most influential R&B acts that debuted in the ’00s. The Miami, Florida natives have two platinum singles under their belt (“Grind with Me” and “On the Hotline”), plus three more Gold-certified smashes (full-lengths Bluestars and Late Night Special, plus single “Your Body”).
Now, all four original members of the group are back in tow, and they’re bringing real R&B back with them. Today, Spectacular, Pleasure P, Baby Blue Whoaaaa, and Slick ‘Em share the video for “Body,” their first new single in years.
The quartet wants everyone to know, “Your job is to stay home to save the world. Our job is make music you can make love to while at home.”
A lush slow jam complete with layered vocal harmonies, hiccuping vocoder, and cracking percussion, “Body” brings the nostalgic rush, seamless blend of styles, and straight-up sexiness of all the best Pretty Ricky songs. Directed by Marcus Paulk, Dale A. Stelly, and Diamond Blue Smith, the new video proves that the four gentlemen haven’t lost an ounce of their lady-killing ability, as they serenade the audience amidst a sea of writhing baddies.
Created in collaboration with Rico Love, and produced by Bigg D and Lamb, “Body” has steadily gained steam since its January release, picking up over 2.5 million streams across platforms. The quartet of Miami natives recently wrapped up the first leg of the “Millennium 2020 Tour,” an arena tour where they performed live on a bill with Omarion, Ying Yang Twins, Bow Wow, Lloyd, and more.
The group is currently working on their next album, and plan on releasing new songs and videos very soon.
