Song: I Specialize In Love
Artist: Sharon Brown
Album: I Specialize In Love (1982) (2010) (Single)
Genre: Club Music
This was one of the many best dance mixes that came from the early 80s. Unfortunately, not only was this song the only song that registered on the charts, it was the only song she was remembered for. At least when it comes to those of us who were club heads back in the day. This was a real shame, as I’ve always felt she had a talented voice, she just never had any massive hits.
Only One Song Registered On The Billboard!
Although, “I Specialize In Love” was never on the Top 100 Chart’s radar, it managed to reach the 51st position in both Hot R&B and Club/Dance categories. #51 seems quite low to me, I heard this song all the time. Well, as I’ve always said, your neighborhood makes a difference!
According to some sources I’ve read, Sharon still seems to be performing. I can’t find how old she is now, but much to my surprise, it is said she’s been active since 1975. She is the daughter of William Brown, who is a professional drummer, and played for groups like The Isley Brothers. In addition to performing, she works with youths to help educate about gang violence in NYC.
