Steve Arrington joined the funk group Slave (founded 1975) on their third LP called, The Concept in 1978 originally to play percussion, then later becoming the drummer and a backing vocalist. Eventually Arrington took over lead vocals, singing on the hit singles “Just a Touch of Love”, “Watching You” and “Wait for Me”.
Arrington left Slave in 1982, forming Steve Arrington’s Hall of Fame, and had hit singles such as “Weak At The Knees” (which was sampled by Jay-Z, Jermaine Dupri, N.W.A, and others), and “Nobody Can Be You But You”.
His most successful album was his 1985 solo work, Dancin’ in the Key of Life, whose title track became a Top Ten R&B hit. The single also spent three weeks at number two on the dance charts. Another single from the album, “Feel So Real” reached #6 in the UK Singles Chart in May that year. He was nominated for the NAACP Image Award for Best Male Artist of 1986.
