FlinterFile: McFadden & Whitehead- Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now
In 1979, two of the writers from the Philadelphia International Records label thought they could record a song together. They had written several hits for the label, including Back Stabbers for the O’Jays. They convinced Gamble & Huff, the owners of the label, to give them a chance. When they got it, they thought: “Well, there ain’t no stopping us now!”. With their experiences they had this song in no time. Or maybe they just made up the lyrics in the studio and recorded in one time, like Whitehead wants us to believe. Anyway, they had a hit: number 13 in the US, number 5 in the UK and number 1 on the US R&B chart. It would be their only hit. Enjoy
