Nuance Featuring Vikki Love – Loveride (1984)

Nuance was an American dance music/freestyle group. It was formed by the producer and arranger, Ron Dean Miller, and featured Vikki Love on vocals. They charted three hits on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart in the 1980s, including “Loveride,” which hit #1 in 1985. The same track peaked at #59 in the UK Singles Chart in January 1985.

The song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart for one week. The single did not crossover to the pop chart, but did peak at number thirty-four on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

A sample of Vikki Love saying “Ooh…” in the song would later be used on the album version of Nu Shooz’ “I Can’t Wait”, the U.S. version and 12″ remix of M|A|R|R|S’s “Pump Up the Volume” and Lisette Melendez’s “Together Forever”

“Loveride” was mixed by Jay Burnett and Mark Kamins and edited by The Latin Rascals.

  1. Freestyle is a tricky genre to tackle. If done well, it can end up as a club classic, like this and Fascinated…but if not well executed, with cheap-sounding instrumentation and production, the end result can be cheesy and tacky. I shall refrain from giving examples for the latter….
    Thanks for this Loveride, EV!
