Biography

BVSMP were a U.S. hip hop group, formed in the 1980s. BVSMP was short for Baby Virgo - Shocking Mister P, and the band consisted of Percy Nathan Rodgers, Calvin Williams and Frederick Eugene Byrd.

BVSMP are best remembered for the hit single “I Need You,” which became a worldwide hit in the summer of 1988. It spent 12 weeks on the UK Singles Chart, peaking at Number 3 in July 1988.

Goldie Lookin Chain’s 2004 hit “You Knows I Loves You” is, in part, based around “I Need You,” containing many of the same lines, for instance “I’m after your heart/oh don’t you see” (which on the BVSMP original, concludes with “I’m not out to get your virginity”, and on the GLC version becomes “and your three kids doesn’t bother me”) and “What’s it gonna take to get your attention?” (which concludes with “You keep my mind hanging in suspension” on the original, and on the GLC version concludes with “track suit, gold chain and seven inch erection”)

BVSMP are also mentioned by name in the track “Roller Disco” on GLC’s Greatest Hits album
