Club Nouveau

Club Nouveau is an R&B band that was formed by producer/performer Jay King in 1986 in Sacramento, California, subsequent to the break up of the Timex Social Club. Other members of Club Nouveau included original members Denzil Foster, Thomas McElroy, Samuelle Pratter, and Valerie Watson. From their debut album, Love, Life, and Pain, which showed up in 1986, they scored four consecutive hits: "Jealousy" (essentially a rewrite of and response to Timex Social Club’s hit "Rumours"), "Situation #9", a remake of Bill Withers’ "Lean on Me", and "Why You Treat Me So Bad".
