An R&B quartet comprised of the four Dalyrimple brothers -- Brian, Chris, Dre, and Jason -- Soul for Real formed in 1992, though the siblings had spent many hours singing in their church choir.
Signed to Uptown Records, Soul for Real debuted in early 1995 with Candy Rain; by the end of the year, the album had gone platinum and reached number 23 on the album charts.
After touring both America and overseas, the group worked with producers Heavy D. and Sean "Puffy" Combs to record For Life. 1999 saw the release of a third album, Heat.
"Candy Rain" is the title of a number-one R&B hit single by Soul for Real. The hit song spent three weeks at number-one on the US R&B chart and peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100.
My love, do you ever dream of
Candy coated raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain
Have you ever loved someone
So much you thought you'd die?
Giving so much of yourself
It seems the only way
Tell me what you want, and I
And I will give it to you
'Cause you are
Did you ever dream that it could be so right
I never thought that I would find
All that I need in life
All I want, all I need now I know
I know I found it in you
I found it in you
'cause you are (rpt 1, 1...)
