Troop’s Lead Singer Made Bold Comment About Down-Low Gays In Music, Fans React
True lovers of 80s/90s R&B know exactly who is, but for those who need a quick breakdown or memory refresher, let us do the liberty of filling you in. Steve is the lead singer of the R&B group, Troop. They had us rockin’ and slow draggin’ back in the day to their many hits, including “Spread My Wings,” “Mamacita,” and two of our personal favorites, “All I Do Is Think of You” (J5 remake) and “I Will Always Love You.”
“F— THE INDUSTRY!” That’s what the Troop lead singer had to say about the music game recently. Steve posted a message on Instagram which read this:
Although Steve never fully explained who he was talking about, he seems to be implying that there’s some down low gay activity going on behind the scenes of the music industry, where some brothas are ‘sleeping their way to the top.’ Steve made it clear that he will never sell his soul by going against who he is – a straight man- just to get his music heard by the masses.
Let’s not get it twisted though, Steve Russell Harts’ music is heard by the masses through the many current music stars he’s worked with, including Chris Brown’s, Jordin Sparks, Faith Evans, Charlie Wilson, Ciara, and more.
But Steve’s referring to his album and the new music he’s also released with his fellow Troop members since 2014. Many may not have heard about it, but they deserve their just due because it’s solid R&B music.
Anyways, after Steve posted his Instagram message saying peace to the music game, his fans sounded off and they mostly gave him respect for staying true to who he is…
Hopefully we get to hear the new creations of Steve’s music soon, but in the meantime you can catch him on his other gig.
