The Top #100 R&B Slow Jams #13 | Paula Abdul - Rush, Rush
Good Evening Folks, welcome back to T.U.M.S. and our next selection into the long-running, long adored collection of love hits in The Top 100 R&B Slow Jams.
What can we say about the beautiful and radiant, former American Idol Judge Paula Abdul? How about this:
Ms. Abdul gave music listeners a very special Valentines treat over 22 years ago, back in 1991, with a classic song that can be played back, over & over...AND OVER again. Not only because the composition is enticing and hypnotic, not only because mega star Prince helped to pen the track (with Peter Lord), but with the assistance of one of cinema's endearing action heroes, "NEO", from movie blockbuster 'The Matrix' series.
"NEO" aka Keanu Reeves made an appearance in Paula's official music video for chart topping single, "Rush, Rush" and help propel the magnificent ballad all the way to #1 on Billboards Hot 100 chart. It stayed there for a consecutive 5 weeks and also made some traction on Billboards' Hot R&B chart at #20.
The single can be found off Ms. Abduls' 2nd recording, "Spellbound," released in 1991.
Who could EVER forget this classic? Let alone, the screenplay to one of the finest, romantic music video's ever made?
That's why the crew made reservations ahead of time and planned to publish the 'slow jam' article feat Paula tonight.
T.U.M.S. wishes each and every one of you, whether you are in love or not, A Happy Valentines' Day 2013 with the arrival of #13 into The Top 100 R&B Slow Jams: Paula Abdul & "Rush, Rush"!!
