Daily SAll-Stars: The Isley Brothers

Ordinarily, we provide an informative article with our SAll-Stars, providing you with some trivia or backstory. But today there is no story to tell. It's just sex.

In all seriousness, The Isley Brothers are one of the most influential R&B acts in music history. Formed in 1954 (!) in Cincinnati, Ohio (clearly the city's finest export of all time), The Isley Brothers were originally renowned for their catchy tunes "Shout!," "Twist and Shout," and "It's Your Thing."

But over forty years later, The Isley Brothers made their most spectacular contribution to the music industry when they collaborated with noted sex machine/offender R. "The 'R' is for 'Piss'" Kelly. That's when the magic happened.

I would like to point out that "Contagious" is my favorite song of all time. No exaggeration.

You've got to love Ernie playing bass in the room while Ron and "Asia" argue.

Finally, this isn't an Isley-Kelly collabo, but it's just as sex-filled.
