From blue stars to true stars...
Miami heat is nothing compared to Pretty Ricky's scorching musical
inferno. Not since the days of music legends like The Beatles, The
Jackson 5 or more recently N'Sync has there been such a fevered
pitch, creating hysteria and chaos when crowds glimpse brothers
Spectacular, Pleasure, Slick 'Em, and Baby Blue. Through their
frequent appearances in teen and music magazines, videos and on
television combined with early participation on MySpace.com, Pretty
Ricky quickly blossomed into a multi-faceted recording act whose
style and imagery play a significant role in their development into
Pretty Ricky first exploded back in 1997, working the Miami music
circuit with weekly jaw-dropping performances. Their father, Joseph
"Bluestar" Smith, eventually had his boys getting Top 10 spins on
regional radio, and in late 2004 Atlantic Records CEO Craig Kallman
heard about the frenzy they were causing. Kallman's decision to sign
Pretty Ricky was solidified the first night he saw them live, as he
was nearly trampled by over 1,000 eager fans.
Over the course of just a few months, Pretty Ricky exploded. Their
Atlantic debut, "BLUE STARS," was one of the best selling albums of
2005 and spawned three hit singles, "Grind With Me," "Your Body,"
and "Age Ain't Nothing But a Number." The album quickly scored RIAA
Gold status, and nearly broke the 1 million mark in just a year.
Written and produced almost entirely by Pretty Ricky and the
exclusive production team Music Royale Productions. "LATE NIGHT
SPECIAL" makes its premier with the sensuous first single, "On the
Hotline." It's a sexy mid-tempo that captivates and tantalizes with
an interpolation of Salt N' Pepper's classic "Let's Talk About Sex,"
redefining what it means to talk about sex. Other cuts like the
viral hit "On the Rocks" and the super sexy ballad "Sticky and Slow"
will have fans singing along, while "Soaking Wet" and "Up and Down
We Go" are signature Pretty Ricky hits with erotic yet gentle
parodies that tickle listeners' imagination.
Although Pretty Ricky's first CD boasted big hits, "LATE NIGHT
SPECIAL" seems destined to surpass their previous success. The
growth and maturity of their lyrics, production, and vocals, coupled
with Pretty Ricky's innate ability to connect with virtually any
market shows the diversity and expansion of these superstars. Forget
everything else on the menu-PRETTY RICKY is your one and only "LATE
