Corina – Temptation (1991)
Temptation by Corina is just one of the many great songs you’d hear on The Beat Chicago. Yes, we play Freestyle because it’s part of our culture and heritage here in Chi-Town.
There’s enough stations playing rock n’ roll classics and the same 80’s songs from Bon Jovi, Journey, John Cougar, Elton John all day long and that’s all cool but, when you want something completely different? When you want everything from Marvin Gaye, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners to Stevie B, C+C Music Factory and more of the music that keeps you movin? We’re it.
See, we’re all about the classics too…. Classic R&B and dance of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, freestyle and more. For us, it’s not about how old a song is, it’s about how good it is and this is as good as it gets.
Back to 1991 we go with Freestyle queen Corina for Temptation.
