Profile Charlene is an American R&B singer, known mainly for her 1982 popular song “I’ve Never Been to Me”, and is considered a one-hit-wonder. Unfortunately her last album spolied in charts and voted as one the worst records of all the time. Motown her record company attempted to revamp her image aimed for a new direction and new sound for Charlene and focused on danceable tunes, in order to appeal to new audiences by highlighting her in a segment of the film The Last Dragon, which was under development by Motown’s founder Berry Gordy. The album is full and keys and poppy/dance songs where ultra catchy “Escape” and “Hit And Run Lover” are the standout moment of the records whille the ballad “I Found In You Something That I Lost In Me” having a 70s feeling that don’t fit with the whole album but still is listenable.
