Stevie B.

Stevie B.

The past is bound to repeat itself, and the return of signature Eighties trends means there may be hope yet for freestyle artist Stevie B. The South Floridian rose to fame in the late Eighties with local-turned-national hit "Party Your Body." His song "Because I Love You (The Postman Song)" reached number one on the charts, but success was fleeting for Stevie; his last few records were released to little notice.

With the rise of alternative rock in the early Nineties, Stevie's music became as outdated as his Jheri curls and mustache. Now, just like neon-colored threads and ozone-destroying hair, Stevie B. is trying to make a comeback with his 2006 release, This Time. The album is not much of a departure from older works, with familiar synthetic dance beats and woefully sung love tales. But in an effort to keep up with the times, Stevie collaborated with fellow Floridian Pitbull for a rap-infused remix of his 1988 single "Spring Love." At least give him credit for trying. — Alexandra Quiñones
