HarbourView Equity Partners has announced an agreement to purchase select songwriting and publishing assets of the music group and production team Full Force. Here’s the latest.

Emerging in the 1980s, Full Force gained recognition for its multifaceted roles as both music producers and hip-hop and R&B performers. The talented six-man collective was formed by brothers Bowlegged Lou, Paul Anthony, B-Fine, and cousins Baby Gerry, Curt-T-T, and J-R Shy Shy. Combining powerful vocals and catchy melodies with energetic performances, the group is behind hits like “Ain’t My Type of Hype”, “Alice, I Want You Just For Me,” “Temporary Love Thing,” and “All In My Mind.”

Full Force’s foray into music production began with UTFO’s 1984 hit “Roxanne Roxanne” and the group has crafted chart-topping hits for artists like Rihanna, Backstreet Boys, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Justin Timberlake, N*SYNC, UTFO, Britney Spears, Samantha Fox, James Brown, Selena, Black Eyed Peas, Cheryl Pepsii Riley, and Patti Labelle.

Full Force wrote and produced “All I Have To Give” from the Backstreet Boys’ self-titled debut album. They also discovered the supergroup Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, who released hits “I Wonder If I Can Take You Home,” “Head To Toe,” and “All Cried Out.” Full Force also wrote and produced Rihanna’s 2005 hit, “That La, La La” as part of her debut album.

With a unique ability to seamlessly blend R&B, hip-hop, pop and dance elements in both their own performances and work with other artists, Full Force has left an enduring legacy and impact on the fabric of the music landscape.

“The repertoire of Full Force defined a generation of pop/hip-hop/R&B with writings spanning N*SYNC, Backstreet Boys, Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam not to mention their own legacy as artists,” adds HarbourView CEO & Founder Sherrese Clarke Soares. “As exceptional songwriters, producers, and musicians, they’ve seamlessly weaved creativity and innovation into timeless tunes, collaborating with some of the most prominent icons of our generation.”

“Full Force is excited to be working with HarbourView, a company with a vision that’s right on trend with the future, and very dedicated to expanding the reach of our extensive catalog,” added Brian B-Fine George of Full Force.
