New York, NY (June 2021)

Sonic Explosion announces the release of the remastered 1976 record, “We Belong Together.” The soulful arrangement of “We Belong Together” epitomizes the first stirrings of love and garnered huge success for the group internationally. Following hospitalization and near-death encounter with Coronavirus, Jameel McKanstry (A&R and lead songwriter for Music Unlimited) decided to focus on what could be a uniting factor between him and his father, Hayward Rashaad (one of the founders of the popular soul group Sonic Explosion) – music.

Between differences in religious ideologies and the abusive relationship that Rashaad had with his wife, the relationship between father and son was non-existent. Now, as Rashaad battles the onset of dementia, the two men have reconnected and are working together to re-introduce this song and band to the world. “We Belong Together” is now available on all digital platforms and everywhere music is sold. # # #
