Calloway

Calloway is an R&B duo of Cincinnati, Ohio natives Reginald (born on January 23, 1955) and Vincent (born on January 5, 1957) Calloway. The brothers had a major hit in 1990 with "I Wanna Be Rich". After the duo's recording career dried up, they became record producers.

 

The brothers grew up around music with a father who played the trumpet, an uncle who played keyboards, and an aunt who sang opera.
As teenagers, they began writing songs and forming bands, and in college they formed Midnight Star, a synth-funk outfit that broke up in 1988.
After Star ran its course, the two left to focus on solo and producing work. Previously they had written hits for acts like Teddy Pendergrass ("Joy"), Gladys Knight & the Pips ( "Love Overboard"), Natalie Cole ( "Jump Start"), Levert ("Casanova"), Klymaxx ("Meeting in the Ladies Room"), and The Whispers ("Contagious") in addition to Midnight Star, and as the duo Calloway, they scored a number two Billboard Hot 100 hit with "I Wanna Be Rich".
After scoring with the follow-ups "Sir Lancelot" (Top 20 R&B), "All the Way" and "Let's Get Smooth," (both R&B Top 40 hits), the hits dried up, and the Calloways moved on to production work.
