Company B is a American trio formed in 1986 by producer Ish Ledesma and originally composed of Lori Ledesma, Charlotte McKinnon and Susan Johnson.
The trio released their first single "Fascinated" in 1986, a single that will go somewhat unnoticed. Just like "Jam on me" which will be released shortly after.
The same “Fascinated” which came out a year later in 1987 in a reworked version. And this time it's the jackpot. The single will be a worldwide hit and explode the reputation of the trio internationally in a spectacular fashion.
Faced with this huge success, to say the least unexpected, the record company Atlantic Records decided to release an album almost immediately. Album which will produce 3 new top hits which are "Full circle" the same year as well as "Perfect lover" and "Signed in your book of love" which will be released a year later in 1988.
The very end of the decade saw the release of the album "Gotta Dance" in 1989, a disappointing album that fell far short of the level of success recorded by its predecessor. None of the 3 singles extracted namely "You stole my heart", "Boogie woogie bugle boy" and "Goddess of love" will manage to rank in the Charts.
A poor performance that will definitely seal the future of the group.
To discover or rediscover.

1986 ... a first title to break in and especially to talk a little about yourself. It is clear that there is still a little work to be done to access the big leagues, but this story starts off pretty well ...
1987 ... it didn't take long for the 3 girls to smash everything. From the 2nd title, it's a planetary jackpot ! They deliver here quite simply the biggest success of all their discography and offer themselves at the same time a direct ticket for posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !
1987 ... an exceptional 1987 year for the trio with a 2nd top hit. It only took one year to dedicate them and make them shatteringly enter the musical legend of the 80s !
1988 ... the year 1988 remains more or less on the same bases as the year 1987. Admittedly, the level of success is noticeable decrease but the girls manage all the same to remain in front of the laeding pack and it is especially that the essential ...
1988 ... the last notorious hit, and yes, already. A dazzling and shattering success with a fall that will be no less. Hard law of the trade ...
1989 ... the adventure continues but the girls will do more of the extras than anything else. Incredible turnaround, but they will not be the first, nor the last, to experience this kind of disillusionment ...
1990 ... they will attempt the transition to the 90s but unfortunately without success. When it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore ...
