Damian Dame Doesn't Find Exclusive Barriers

"Damian Dame's self-titled debut was released in 1991 on the popular La Face record label owned by Babyface and LA Reid. The material is excellently produced but otherwise routine new jack swing/urban contemporary material. Damian Dame sang with a deep sincerity and seriousness, but lacked much diversity and power to make this release as memorable as other new jack swing releases. Though, the LaFace family featured a team of highly skilled hit makers like Daryl Simmons and De Rock, not to mention Edmonds and Reid. Even the background vocal arrangements are in top-knotch form; Tye-V, Kevon Edmonds, and Debra Hurd. The hit single "Exclusivity" hit No. 1 on the R&B charts, and just missed the top-40 on the Billboard Hot 100; "Right Down To It" hit No. 3 on the R&B charts, and "Gotta Learn My Rhythm" hit No. 20 on the R&b charts."
The 1st Laface Act!

"To clear the air, Deah Dame sadly departed from this earth in 1994. Damian Broadus followed two years later in '96. While they were here, they contributed an album that I enjoy listening to over and over again. Deah really soars on the balladry, namely "when i'm crying" and "love come near me". Also, laface puts their new jack skills to work on the uptempo numbers " exclusivity", "gotta learn the rhythm", and "dont remind me". Needless to say, Damian Dame were truly talented. Unfortunately, the popular audience overlooked the new jack gem. Had they continued, they could have amassed enormous success during new jack and beyond. However, this is only musical contribution they gave to us. If you are a casual new jack fan, this album is a must, especially with their social significance."

"This group was new and one of Laface's projects in 1991.They remind me a lot of the former group Aurra back in the 80's.The female has a beautiful voice.The first single they release was Exclusivity which was a fast tempo song that will have you doing the head nod.The lady really shows her skills on the tracks of "Virgin Island & When I'm crying".Two really lovemaking slow tracks.I'm not sure what happen after they debuted with this cd but rumor has it that one of them died before they could get back in the studio for a follow up cd.If you don't have this cd I strongly recommend that you get it before it's completely out of existence.U won't regret it & you're be able to smile when your friends hear it and tell you they never heard of Damian Dame and where can they get a copy."
