Lyric: J Rising Sampler (J Records, 2001)

Along with Isyss and LovHer, Lyric was yet another R&B group that emerged in the early 2000s. They were the first female group to be signed to Clive Davis' J Records imprint of RCA Records in 2002 but unfortunately owing to unforeseen circumstances, their debut effort EPISODE was cancelled and as far as I am aware only the three tracks on this CD and a further three track advance sampler ever existed. Included on this compilation are their two singles (Young & Sexy and Hot & Tipsy) and the rare track Little Did You Know, which was their cancelled third single. Not as poppy as a lot of the other teenage R&B groups out at the time, notably 3LW and Blaque. Features production by Bad Boy-affiliated producer Jack Knight on track 1...
