imageLyric was a female R&B group from Brooklyn, New York that consisted of member Farrah “Fendi” Fleurimond (from Brooklyn), Jackie “Baby J” (from Los Angeles, California) & Thema “Tayma Loren” McKinney.

Thema’s brother is music producer Carlos McKinney. They were the first female music trio to be signed to Clive Davis’ J Records imprint label. imageOn August 6, 2002, the trio released their debut single “Young & Sexy” (featuring rapper Loon).

The song peaked at #79 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, staying on the chart for 7 weeks.

It was featured on the soundtrack to the video game “NBA Live 2003” and the 2002 film “The Hot Chick.” imageLyric’s follow-up single “Episode” didn’t appear to make the Billboard charts at all. imageThe trio’s other two singles “Hot & Tipsy” and “Little Did You Know” also failed to make any impact on the Billboard charts at all.

The songs were supposed to appear on their debut album, but it was never released.

Lyric attended the Grammy Week Songwriters luncheon in 2003 with R&B singer Patti LaBelle before breaking up & leaving J Records, seemingly fading into obscurity.

Farrah has written songs for artists such as Bobby V, Jessie J, Monica, Charlie Wilson & Karina Pasian.

These days, it appears as if Tayma is pursuing a solo music career & resides in San Francisco, California. It’s unknown what Jackie is up to these days.
