Boyz II Men might have had bigger hits, but our favorite track for the Philadelphia group is “Motownphilly.” They might be known for their slow jams, but their more upbeat first single is where it’s at. The 1991 release from their Cooleyhighharmony payed homage to not only their city, but other New Jack Swing groups of the time.
For those who played the video game GTA: San Andreas, the song was also featured in the game on the radio station CSR. It was classic times, running people over and crashing into cars while this song played. Doing the little East Coast swang!
