Randy Watson pulling his music from Spotify memes flood Twitter
That’s just news: Randy Watson, the lead vocalist of Sexual Chocolate (as in the fictitious band from 1988 rom-com Coming To America, with Eddie Murphy playing not one, not two, but three roles), has removed his music from audio streaming service Spotify.
In case it wasn’t clear, this is a joke.
There is a genuine Sexual Chocolate on Spotify. Their most popular album is 2008’s Room 69, which contains eight songs such as Love & Happiness and Glaze Doughnut Face.
However, it appears that this Sexual Chocolate isn’t the same as in Coming to America, and it’s not being removed from Spotify. According to the hundreds of tweets that have been posted in the past two days — This Sexual Chocolate is fronted by Randy Watson, whose music is still available on the platform.
In fact, Randy Watson has two singles and one EP available to stream on Spotify. The most popular track is a mix of Whatta King and We Are Family, which replaces “I’ve got all my sisters with me” with “I’ve got Sexual Chocolate.”
Who plays Sexual Chocolate frontman Randy Watson?
Eddie Murphy portrays Prince Akeem Joffer of Zamunda and soul singer Randy Watson in Coming To America, as well as barbershop customer Saul, barbershop owner Clarence, and the film’s concept. He also created the tale for the picture.
The band is made up of Tori Ruffin on guitar, Melvin Davis on bass, Karl Denson on saxophone, Jeffery Suttles on percussion, and Brice Sterling on keys.
The original band was reassembled for the sequel, Coming 2 America, which was released in 2021.
