When Groove Theory's "Tell Me" dropped at the end of the summer of 1995, it shocked just about everyone with its sweet simplicity. I say "sweet" because Amel Larrieux's voice sounded almost as though it may have been barely audible above a whisper when she was recording it in the studio. "Tell Me" was the type of track that everyone seemed to agree upon, much like Zhane had done three years earlier with their summer jam, "Hey Mr. D.J." Everyone from young and old, those who were "conscious" all the way down to those who hugged the block seemed to adore this song. First fun fact: there was a reason why Amel was filmed in a voluminous top and barely moved to the beat in the video. She was pregnant with her first daughter at the time that Epic Records decided to push herself and former Mantronix member Bryce Wilson into the limelight. Second fun fact: that's Trey Lorenz's voice that appears towards the end of the song. Despite the fact that Amel and Bryce (also known for being Toni Braxton's cutie in "Making Me High") were not able to continue on as a creative pair, this song has helped to cement what some may feel are a one-hit-wonders into our collective consciousness. And those of us who really know what's up, know that the rest of the Groove Theory album is a slept-on classic. In the meantime, take a trip down memory lane and reminisce to a time when you were younger and it was just as hot outside. Ahhhh...I can feel the dewiness on my skin right now.
