I Like What You're Doing To Me

Album: I Like What You're Doing To Me (1980)
Charted: 20
  • This was the first release from the funk group that came out of East Orange, New Jersey, formed and lead by Billy Young and Buddy Hankerson. The strong beat, sultry lead vocals, and memorable hook made this song have an impact. But this type of music was already going out of style, and they never made an impact on the pop charts again, though they had modest success in the funk genre. However, this song continues to have an impact, as it's been sampled by several other artists, including Black Sheep on their song "Strobelite Honey." >>
