The Force MD’s are, literally, still a major musical force to be reckoned with, and graciously wear their old school status with beaming pride. To the world as a whole, they are tried & true legends whose catalog of popular songs are deeply rooted in culture and the recording industry. From their earliest inception in the ’80’s as a close family R&B group, through several personal challenges and hardships, as well as multiple career highs, The Staten Island, New York, based collective rightfully opened the door for other greats; such as New Edition, Usher and TLC, to name a few, and their status as songwriters, producers and performers, are further evident by Wiz Khalifa, Alicia Keys, Marsha Ambrosius and the aforementioned N.E., who have all covered their music. Even former President Barack Obama mentioned that The Force MD’s are on his personal playlist!
Please introduce for me the members of Force MD’s…
Stevie D (Lundy), Khalil (Lundy) and Zieme (Capers).
How has not only the business of music in general, but, even more-so you all, collectively, either changed and/or evolved since your whole inception into music?
It’s a new music model where now you can deal directly with fans or your audience, rather than relying on a major label or a middle man.
Well, the good news…No, take that back…The great news is that you all are finally back in full e-f-f-e-c-t mode with brand new music — Tell me about “Don’t Rush?“ How did it even come to fruition?
With “Don’t Rush,” we connected with a young writer and producers from Philly. They let us hear the song…we just knew it was a smash, especially once we added our flavor on top of it.
Sonically, how does this new song measure up to previous Force MD’s efforts?
Well we lost some of our original members [Charles “Mercury” Nelson, DJ Dr. Rock, Antoine “T.C.D.” Lundy and Trisco Pearson last September], but since we are family the Force MD’s sound is rooted in it and it’s a grown and sexy vibe with a two-step swag that grown folk can relate to.
I am assuming here, but is “Don’t Rush” the lead offering from your long overdue, next/seventh studio effort? If so, what all can you reveal and/or divulge about said collection at this time?
Yes, “Don’t Rush” is the leading single but we have some beautiful songs we’re about to unleash to the world…so get ready!
Longevity, what do you all attribute yours to?
Loving what we do…also keeping the legacy alive for us, the ones we lost and our fans.
Do you all have any other outside/additional future aspirations, maybe even completely away from music?
Stevie D’s new book Necessary Force, our music academy, The Force MD’s Music Academy, and our stage play, Legends of the Forgotten Borough.
On a more serious note, are you all happy with the current state of R&B? And, as an extension to this question, when it comes to the overall sound-scape of today’s current music trends, where exactly do you all “fit in?”
Of course we love our era more ’cause we created more timeless music – not microwave music – but there’s so many great talented artists we hear today that we love so much.
To date, what has been your biggest career moment(s)?
On tour with Madonna, and the former President Obama bangin’ our music on Air Force One.
Looking ahead, say five or maybe even ten years from now, where do you all see yourselves?
Enjoying life to the fullest, while helping others reach their goals in the music business and any of the other businesses we have.
As for the immediate, what’s next for Force MD’s?
Dropping our new album, and our remake album, ‘Our Favorite Joints,’ (which) dropped July 7th, 2017.
Is there anything I left out or just plain forgot to mention?
We want to thank all our family, friends and fans, for supporting us for so long.
Any “parting” words for our readers?
Don’t sit back and wait for life to happen, get out there and make it happen!
