NKRU

NKRU (which stands for Naughty Kreations R Unifed) were a female hip-hop\R&B quartet from the early 90's that consisted of members Jennifer Dial, Scjuan O'Neal, Antonne Broussard and Kellie Weaver.

Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to the Kyper Records label on RCA Records.
In 1993, they released a cover version of Zapp's "Computer Love" which peaked at #55 on Billboard's Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 10 weeks. 
Another single, "Sies Nueve" was released, but didn't appear to make the charts at all. NKRU were planning on releasing their debut album, "Freaky To You," but from what I've discovered, it was never released.

After that, it seemed as if NKRU faded into obscurity. Their whereabouts are unknown.

I ran across these chicks back in the 90s when i dabbled in the music biz. They had a good sound but too much like t.l.c.
