Singer/bassist/guitarist/songwriter Janice Marie Johnson, as a founding member of A Taste of Honey, sang lead on the million-selling hits “Boogie Oogie Oogie” and a cover of Kyu Sakamoto’s 1963 gold hit “Sukiyaki.” The group won the 1978 Grammy for Best New Artist. The number one R&B/pop “Boogie Oogie Oogie” was used in a national TV ad campaign by fast food chain Burger King during summer 1999. The track has also been sampled by hip-hop and rap groups MC Lyte, Mac 10, and others. Johnson also sang background vocals on Lionel Richie’s ten-million-selling LP Can’t Slow Down. Capitol Records released as a part of their Double Shot series a two-album single CD that included the group’s debut album, A Taste of Honey (includes a 12″ remix of “Boogie Oogie Oogie”) and Twice As Sweet (includes “Sukiyaki”) in January 2000
