They charted four consecutive Gold’s and one Platinum album. Their 20 hit singles included 8 Top Ten R&B Hits and one #1 R&B smash.

More Than Love is an exciting chapter in the evolution of ConFunkShun. For over two

anthems and memorable slow jams. The new album is a testament to their staying power
and ability to deliver music that is right on time and in the pocket. Michael Cooper sums
up the secret to their success simply: “ConFunkShun is still all about Funk ‘N Love. That’s
what we’ve always promoted.”
