Force M.D.'s

Force MDs

 

The Force M.D.'s were among the first R&B vocal groups to intermix doo-wop-affected consonances with hip-hop beats and sold millions of records.

When the group began performing as the L.D.s on the Staten Island ferry singing and doing impersonations, the group was composed of brothers Steven” Stevie D” Lundy, Antoine "T.C.D." Lundy, Rodney "Khalil" Lundy, their uncle Jessie Lee Daniels, and later friends Trisco Pearson and Charles "Mercury" Nelson. After the L.D.s connected with DJ Dr. Rock (Roger Daniels) they also performed as Dr. Rock & the Force MCs.

By the time the Force M.D.s got a record deal, signing with Tommy Boy Records in 1984, the group had already developed into a pure quiet storm/contemporary R&B group; with its top-ten R&B hit "Tears" from the Love Letters album. With the exception of their first album, the group was the first act on Tommy Boy to have major-label distribution through its then-parent Warner Bros. Records.




The group produced a collection of R&B hits throughout the 1980s, and received overwhelming commercial success from the Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis-penned love song "Tender Love" from their second album, Chillin’ (1985). "Tender Love" was featured in the 1985 feature film and soundtrack Krush Groove. The single proved to be a huge success, peaking at #10 in the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming an instant R&B classic after it stayed on the chart for 19 weeks.

The Force M.D.'s finally scored its first R&B #1 hit in 1987, "Love is a House," from the group's third album, Touch & Go. A fourth album, Step to Me, was released in 1990. The group then released the album Moments in Time in 1994.

The Remaining MDs returned with a comeback album titled The Reunion in 2000. In an interview in 2009 President Obama highlighted the Force M.D.s among other artists included in his Air Force One iPod playlist. On April 8, 2010, the Force M.D.'s made a national television appearance on B.E.T.'s Monique Show.

A feature film documentary was recently made on the group titled The Force M.D.s Relived. The film is currently being featured in film festivals around the country, as the group continues to perform on stages all over the world.
