Velore & Double-O (whose real names are Aaron Carter and Purcell Beale) were a male hip-hop\rap music duo from the ’80s. Not much information is given about them, but they were signed to the Virgin Records America, Inc. record label and previously recorded music under the name “Ebony Dukes.”
In 1986, the duo released their debut single “We Rock the House” on Fresh Cut Records. It’s unknown how or if the single charted at all.
A year later in 1987, Velore & Double-O released their debut (and only) album “We’re Coming Correct.”
The two singles released from the album: “Your Ugly” (which peaked at #46 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart in 1987) and “She’s Fine” (which peaked at #36 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart in 1988) were moderately successful on the dance music charts.
In 1988, Velore & Double-O released the single “We Had Enough (Straight From the Street)\We’re Gonna Get ‘Em (Rock the Beat)” which was released on the Invasion Recordings label. It’s unknown how or if the duo’s last single made any impact at all.
The duo’s last musical release was the song “Have to Let You Go” which was featured on the compliation album “Ritmo Quente II” in 1991 (which was only released in Brazil).
After that, it seems as if Velore & Double-O had faded into obscurity. It’s unknown what they’re up to these days.
