Comprising Gary 'Big G' Glenn, Gary 'Little G' Jenkins, Jonathan Rasboro, Jimmy Gates Jr. and Timothy Cameron, Silk formed in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, in the early 90s. Their 1992 debut album, Lose Control, was a smooth collection of contemporary soul songs produced by Keith Sweat; it quickly rose to number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B albums chart and sold nearly two million copies. It featured three US R&B Top 10 hits, including 'Freak Me', which stayed at number 1 on the chart for eight weeks in 1993. Sweat had discovered the group and signed them to his own Keia label. However, with a view to extending their career beyond the confines of sexually suggestive material such as 'Freak Me', the group left Sweat and moved to Elektra Records for 1995's self-titled second album. As well as three of their own songs, Silk included contributions from several top-flight R&B writers, plus renowned production teams including Dave Hall, Soul Shock and Gerald LeVert.
