    (1986- )
    Born in Sacramento, California
    Original members were Jay King, Denzil Foster, Thomas McElroy, Samuelle Prater, and Valerie Watson
    Recorded the singles ‘Jealousy’ (1986), ‘Situation #9’ (1986), ‘Lean on Me’ (1987), ‘Why You Treat Me So Bad’ (1987), and ‘No Friend of Mine’ (1989)
    They chose their name (French for ‘new club’) to indicate that they spun off from the Timex Social Club.
    Their first single ‘Jealousy’ was a combination of a diss of the Timex Social Club and an answer song to that group’s hit, ‘Rumors.’
    Foster, McElroy, and Pater left after their debut album.
    ’Why You Treat Me So Bad’ was sampled by Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs.
    Their cover of Bill Withers’ ‘Lean on Me’ made it one of the few songs to hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 in versions by two different artists.
    They had four Top 10 hits on Billboard’s R&B chart.
    Foster and McElroy went on to write and produce hits for En Vogue and Tony! Toni! Tone!.
