"Recorded in the fall of 1988, this feel good tune was the driving force behind the New Jack Swing movement of the late 1980's. "What's Gucci" debuted at #37 on the US billboard charts. The song has remained popular due to its timeless message about love and how communication is the key to a good relationship. Other bands such as Boyz II Men and Dragonforce have cited the song as a heavy influence on their music. "It's like he crawled into our heads and knew exactly what to say. Like, damn" (R.Kelly).
Although the song was a massive hit, Qwontell has yet to release any followup to "Gucci". It seems the r&b crooner prefers to live in solitude among the lilly trees of Ireland" - Peter Travers.
