In 1988 the World Class Wreckin Cru released “Turn Off The Lights” as a single. The song was written by the group’s founder Alonzo Williams who co-produced the track with Dr. Dre. Williams, Dre and DJ Yella provided vocals while Michel’le sang the female lead part. The song reached the Top 40 on the R&B charts and spent 11 weeks on the Hot 100. That same year, Dre and Yella’s group N.W.A. released the landmark ‘Straight Outta Compton’ album. Quite a contrast in music styles, don’t you agree?
