Word Up by Cameo
Released: Jan 1986
Released in 1986, Word Up! was the album that brought Cameo's robo-electro funk into the mainstream. The title cut is one of the great dancefloor jams of the decade, with its slamming drumbeat and singer Larry Blackmon's weirdo nasal delivery. Although Cameo never repeated the success of that song, they remain a major influence on the evolution of funk and hip-hop.
