NKRU: Seis Nueve/Computer Love (Cassette Single) (Kaper Records, 1993)

Another short-lived girl group from the glory days and signed to a division of RCA Records in 1993. Their name an acronym for "Naughty Kreations R Unified", they were mostly known for their cover of Zap & Roger's 1985 hit Computer Love, which was released as a double-A side with Seis Nueve in 1993. Somebody once described TLC as having bitten off of their swagger but this quartet - also employing the use of a rapper - actually came a year afterwards. Sadly they did not release anything else but a year later their label Kaper Records tried again with another female group Blackgirl. As for RCA Records, they went on to develop a rather annoying pattern of dropping many good R&B artists and groups from their labels...
