8 Screamin' Rachael My Main Man
The song that brought the Queen of House to NYC and paved the way for Hip House, spanning a legion of imitators, like Samantha Fox. In Rachael's words: "My Main Man," was sort of a siren's song. I thought if I wrote a song about my ultimate man, he would arrive! Well all the guys thought they were or could be the main man, so the song created a big buzz! It was released on Trax, and then landed me a mega-million dollar deal at Streetwise, which unfortunately, closed its' doors before the albums release. It became a favorite at the Paradise Garage in NYC, probably because the men felt the same way I did! It was also trend setting in the fact that the vocal was a sort of sexy rap-talk style, very different for its time."
