The mid 80’s and 90’s were great years for R&B/Soul music and produced some of the most beloved and talented male groups. And during that time, one of the most successful and endearing powerhouses was the R&B trio LeVert. Formed in Cleveland, Ohio in 1984, LeVert was a dominant force on the music charts and created a successful blueprint for urban male groups. The trio’s formula of combining soulful ballads and up-tempo beats with catchy hooks produced a dynamic catalog of music to be enjoyed for many years to come.
The original group was comprised of Gerald and Sean LeVert, the sons of O’Jays founder Eddie LeVert, and lifelong friend Marc Gordon. The trio was a popular mainstay on urban radio delivering a string of popular records such as I Get Hot, Bloodline, The Big Throwdown, Just Coolin’, Rope a Dope Style, For Real Tho’ and Whole Scenario. LeVert racked up hit singles such as “(Pop Pop Pop) Goes My Mind,” “Casanova,” “Baby I’m Ready,” “Addicted to You,” and “Just Coolin” featuring Heavy D.
