Scarlett and Black

Scarlett and Black (whose real names were Robin Hild and Sue West) were a pop music duo from the U.K. that were former backup vocalists for London rock band, Doctor and the Medics.
In 1987, they released their self-titled debut album on Virgin Records which managed to peak at #107 on the Billboard 200 a year later.
The duo's only hit song to date, "You Don't Know" peaked at #20 on the Billboard Hot 100, #32 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart, #41 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart and #13 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.
Scarlett and Black's follow-up single, "Let Yourself Go-Go" didn't reach the same success as their previous single. After that, the duo was unable to provide another follow-up hit and had seemingly faded into obscurity.

After that, Sue West went on to play with Los Angeles power pop music act, Sparkle Jet UK from the mid 90's to early 2000's & these days, Robin Hild works as a songwriter.
