Simple Pleasure

Simple Pleasure were an R&B trio from New Jersey that consisted of ex-military men Vann Holland, Gerald Drummond and Rodney Gibson.

The trio were previously stationed at the McGuire Air Force Base in New Jersey & wrote songs for Queen Latifah and even starred in her music video for the song, "Fly Girl."
In 1992, the trio released their only self-titled album on Reprise Records. It's unknown how or if their album ever charted.
The first single from the album, "Where Do We Go" peaked at #25 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 18 weeks.
The follow-up single, "Never Before" peaked at #52 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 12 weeks. After that, it seemed the group has faded into obscurity. 

These days, Vann Holland is the owner and founder of an apparel and accessories company called Revolution Riche.  It is unknown what Gerald Drummond and Rodney Gibson are up to today.

The music industry should hang its head in shame, these guys should be FORCED to produce music.

That is an out and out SCANDAL!
