Jocelyn Brown is an American singer who first played choristers in the late 70s in groups like "Revanche", "Musique", "Inner life", "Cerrone", "Bad girls", "Chic", "Change", "Salsoul Orchestra", "Soiree" and other "Dazzle".
She experienced her first personal success in 1984 with the title "Somebody else’s guy", taken from her album with the same name and released the same year.
She did it again in 1985 with the single "Love’s gonna get you" which in turn made a good run in the US charts.
Despite a few hits, her career never really took off and this is how she continued to play choristers during the 80s, especially with groups like Culture Club.

1978 ... 100 % Disco, 100 % Dance debut. In a style so typical of that time. A reference in the matter !
1978 ... and what to say about it. It is this title that will bring her her first global mega hit. Certainly, for the moment she is still in the Musique group so we will say that it is a collective success ...
1979 ... this time we find her within the Inner Life group. In a style always 100 % Dance and especially in a style 100 % effective !
1980 ... little foray into the Change group. And even if this title will meet only a limited success, the quality is essential, it is clear
1981 ... a shocking duo for a title that is no less. We suspected that by combining the 2 the result would be explosive. The Dancefloor still remember !
1981 ... back with Inner Life. An amazing and atypical group alternation because she has everything you need to take on a solo career. Whatever the case, and whoever or the partners, the result is the same : guaranteed success !
1982 ... this time, it will be with Salsoul Orchestra. She loves changing partners, it has to be said...
1982 ... after the 100 % Disco, here comes the 100 % Funky. Anyway, we stay in the Dance pure and hard. A musical orientation that has become its trademark over time and which it will be difficult to change
1982 ... the Inner Life adventure continues slowly but surely. Even if this adventure will not produce any major hit, the set remains of quality and it would have been a shame to hide it
1983 ... a single title year, extremely rare for her. Usually it's 2, 3, 4, 5 or more titles in one year. We must therefore be satisfied with this one !
1984 ... then comes THIS title. The title of the consecration and this time, icing on the cake, solo. She signs here what will surely remain her best title and undoubtedly one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade. MAS-TER-FUL !
1984 ... a decidedly exceptional year with a second top hit in the process. There are years like this where everything succeeds. Hope it lasts ...
1985 ... a single title year, but sometimes quality is better than quantity. Which will be the case here. A great adventure that continues and it's far from over
1987 ... in an ocean of Dance tracks, here comes finally the tenderness break. Admittedly, this title will not remain as its most famous but it holds the road, it is clear. What more !
1987 ... after a frankly disappointing year in 1986, it is clear that the singer is particularly in good shape in this year 1987. She delivers here a title which, once again, serious groove. Quite simply a good job !
1990 ... the singer loves to play with others, it's been like that since the beginning of her career. And it succeeds rather well, the proof with this title which allows her to start the decade 90 in the best way
1990 ... shocking duo, but above all charming, on an Intimist track that works perfectly and which allows the 2 artists to give the best of themselves
1991 ... already 3 decades on the clock and still the same energy. An energy that pays off since she obtains one of its biggest successes here. HU-GE !
1991 ... when the decade 70 meets the decade 90. And my faith, the result is not that bad. And one more mega hit on the clock !
1991 ... rarely an artist will have multiplied partnerships to this point. She almost never sang alone. An almost unique bias !
1992 ... here she arrived in EuroDance mode, an incredible big gap when you remember that in her early days, she collaborated with Cerrone in full Disco euphoria. Two major musical trends at the end of the 20th century, but the opposite of each other !
1994 ... and it continues. Nothing and no one seems to be able to stop her. She will have perfectly mastered the transitions between the decades 70, 80 and 90, something extremely rare at this level !
1996 ... an exceptional longevity which she owes only to one thing : its talent. If the young generation wants to have her by their side, there are reasons !
1997 ... with each new appearance we say that it will necessarily be the last. No, she comes back, and comes back, and comes back. An insatiable thirst to perform and simply continue the adventure
1998 ... a truly incredible number of partnerships. Even if few will reach the heights of the Charts, the fact remains that the discography of the singer is amazing !
1998 ... the "favorite" of the young generation. Rarely has an artist from the 70s been asked as much during the 90s as a showcase. Mighty prowess and above all mighty recognition !
1999 ... she is about to start its 4th decade without being old-fashioned in the least, extremely rare. She will return during the 2000s, but this time it will be the end of a truly phenomenal adventure !
