Anna, Fatima, and Juanita left the group due to management & financial issues, leaving J.J. Fad as a trio with their MC, DJ Train. The new line-up of J.J. Fad consisted of MC J.B. (Juana), Sassy C. (Michelle), and Baby-D (Dania). They became one of the original acts signed to Ruthless Records by the late Eazy-E.
In 1987, they managed to sell 400,000 copies of their single, "Supersonic" independently before Eazy-E and Jerry Heller managed to secure a major record contract.
After that, J.J. Fad broke up. In 1994, DJ Train passed away from smoke inhalation. In 2006, female singer Fergie used an interpolation of "Supersonic" in her hit song, "Fergalicious" along with a sample of Afro-Rican's song, "Give it All You Got."
After being out of the music scene for almost two decades raising their families, J.J. Fad reunited and began touring in 2009. "Supersonic" appeared in Dance Central 3 and was promoted by the group on their Facebook page.
These days, J.J. Fad continue to tour around the nation, doing guest appearances and Old School shows. They are also working on a new album.
