Motif were a 90’s R&B trio from the Bronx, New York that consisted of members Larry Hendricks, William Moran and Darrien Douglas.

Not much information is given about them, but they released only one album on Payday Records.

In 1993, Motif released their first single, “Please Tell Me Tonight” which did well enough to earn the trio a record deal.

During that same year, they released their only album “More Than Magic!” which didn’t appear to chart at all on the Billboard charts.

The only single to chart was “You Told Me” (featuring rapper Positive K.) which peaked at #90 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Singles chart, staying on the chart for 3 weeks.

After that, it seemed as if Motif has faded into obscurity. Nothing much has been heard from them since.
