AccuRadio Song Of The Day-Changing Faces

Artist:Changing Faces
Album:All Day All Night

The female R & B duo Changing Faces had two top ten pop hits in the mid-90s. They disappeared after three albums but are still active. Changing Faces are from New York City. Cassandra Lucas and Charisse Rose met while studying at the Music & Art High School. They went their separate ways after high school. They went to college while still trying to break into the music business. They reunited as backup singers for R & B singer Sybil. They decided to record as a duo and signed with the Atlantic Records label Big Beat Records. Their debut CD Changing Faces was released in 1994 and the debut single Stroke You Up reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Their second CD All Day All Night was released in 1997 and G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T. reached #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the R & B Singles chart. Both CDs were certified Gold. Though Cassandra and Charisse write some of their own songs and work with various producers, both Stroke You Up and G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T. were written and and produced by R. Kelly. I don't know why but Kelly seems to have a knack of producing hits for female R & B and gospel artists. Changing Faces released their third CD Visit Me in 2000. There were no hit singles and the album didn't do as well as the first two. My guess is the three year gap between releases hurt them. Changing Faces seemed to disappear after that. In 2011, Cassandra said in an interview that Changing Faces never split up and they were working on new music. They released a single Hate Love on iTunes Apr. 2013. Then they did split up and Charisse announced she is continuing Changing Faces with a new partner. Cassandra plans to record as a solo artist. Oh, the drama. Here's the video for G.H.E.T.T.O.U.T. by Changing Faces.
