On this day in music history: October 27, 1990 – “So You Like What You See” by Samuelle hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 2 weeks. Written and produced by Thomas McElroy and Denzil Foster (Club Nouveau, En Vogue), it is the debut solo single and biggest hit for the former vocalist from the group Club Nouveau. The song is a last minute addition to Samuelle Prater’s debut album “Living In Black Paradise”, and had originally been intended for MC Lyte (first titled “Dr. Love”) for inclusion on a compilation album titled “FM2” that Foster/McElroy had been producing. Prater was only to have sung the word “delight” throughout the song. But when the producers liked how Prater sang the hook, they re-wrote the lyrics for Samuelle and re-titled the song. “So You Like What You See” also becomes a big hit on the Dance chart via 12” remixes produced by Teddy Riley.
