About Whodini

Coming out of the fertile early-'80s New York hip-hop scene, Whodini were one of the first rap groups to add a straight R&B twist to their music, laying the groundwork for the new jack swing movement. The group scored several major hits throughout the '80s, including the Thomas Dolby-produced "Magic's Wand" from their self-titled 1983 debut, to dancefloor classics like "Friends" and "Freaks Come Out at Night" from 1984's platinum Escape. The trio slowed down in the '90s, releasing no new music after 1996's Six, but the impressions left by their earliest material continued to be felt in new waves of rap, pop, and dance music.
