7669

7669 were a female R&B quartet from the early 90s that consisted of members Thicknezz, Shorti 1 Forti, E-Boog-E and Big Ang.

Their music was produced by Full Force and they were signed to Motown Records.
In 1993, the group released their one and only album "7669 East From a Bad Block." It's unknown how or if the album ever charted.
The first single "So High" peaked at #35 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 16 weeks, making it their highest appearance on the chart.

The last single from the album "Joy" peaked at #72 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the charts for 9 weeks. The song also peaked at #60 on the U.K. Singles chart.
The last single from the album "Heree Ah Cumm" was released, but didn't appear to make the Billboard charts at all.

After that, 7669 had faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.

I absolutely loved this album. I had no idea that Full Force was the producers on this album. It didn't have their sound. 7669 did rap on their album also. "So High" used the sample and song styling of Deniece William's "Free." Have you covered the group YNVEE yet? This is a good website and I thank you for it!
