Londonbeat — British-American pop group
At the end of 1980’s an American singer Jimmy Helms decided to establish a new band. The lineup included American musicians Jimmy Chambers and George Chandler as well as a British guitar player William Henshall. They called the band Londonbeat.
In 1988, in the Netherlands, the band released its debut single "Killer Drop / One Blink / Beat Patrol". The song didn’t make it into the charts, but the group kept working hard. Soon they released the new track "There's a Beat Going On" and "9 A.M. (The Comfort Zone)", which reached good spots on Dutch, British, and New Zealand charts. All three singles were featured on Londobeat’s debut album, Speak, which came out the same year.
In 1989, the band released its fourth single, "Failing in Love Again", which reached the 11th spot on the Dutch charts and the 60th on UK Singles Chart.
The year 1990 was very important for the band. The group presented its most famous hit, "I've Been Thinking About You". The song immediately conquered the hearts of dance music lovers all over the world and topped the charts in Australia, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and 10 more countries, including Zimbabwe. The track topped Billboard Hot 100 in April. The song was highly commercially successful and earned a variety of platinum, gold, and silver certificates in different countries.
