Andrea True Connection - More, More, More
During her heyday as a porn actress, around 1975, True was hired by a real estate business in Jamaica to appear in their commercials. During her stay in Jamaica, a political crisis gripped the island, and no one was allowed to leave with any money. Not wanting to lose the pay she had earned from the real estate ads, True asked her friend, record producer Gregg Diamond, to travel to the island and produce a track for her, which she would finance locally using that money. Diamond arrived with a composition in hand, to which True added her vocals. The result of their collaboration was “More, More, More.” Ultimately remixed by recording engineer Tom Moulton, “More, More, More” became a favorite in discos and nightclubs. It ultimately reached No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and a full album with the same title soon followed. The single also reached the charts in the United Kingdom (where it peaked at No. 5) and Germany (where it reached No. 9).
How is that not the best story about the creation of a hit song?
