The U-Krew

The U-Krew were an hip-hop\R&B quintet from Portland, Oregon that consisted of lead singer Kevin Morse, producer\keyboardist\drum programmer Larry Bell, Lavelle Alexander, James McClendon and Hakim Muhammad.

The group's original name was "the Untouchable Crew" back when they first formed in October of 1984.
After the group shortened their name to "U-Krew," they released their one and only self-titled debut album in 1989 which peaked at #93 on the Billboard 200 chart.
In 1990, The U-Krew's biggest hit to date "If You Were Mine" peaked at #24 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #46 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart.
The group's follow-up single "Let Me Be Your Lover" peaked at #68 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #81 on Billboard's Hot Black Singles chart.

Another single "Ugly" was released, but didn't chart. After that, they never released another album and have seemingly faded into obscurity.
