Female American R&B quartet, Xscape, active from 1993-2005, enjoyed considerable commercial success. The fact that the group have disbanded makes any of their signed gold records extremely collectible. "Off the Hook," their 2nd studio album, was released in 1995. It was successful and although only reaching no. 127 in the UK Albums Charts, it peaked at no. 23 in the US Billboard 200 and no.3 in the US Billboard Top R&B / Hip-Hop Albums Charts. The album spawned 4 hit singles and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Another of their gold discs worthy of inclusion is the 1998 release, "Traces of My Lipstick." The band's first album for 3 years, it achieved a similar level of success to "Off the Hook," reaching no. 28 in the US Billboard 200 and no. 6 in the US Billboard Top R&B / Hip-Hop Albums Charts, although only getting as high as no. 181 in the UK Albums Charts. Nonetheless, it was eventually awarded platinum certification by the RIAA, with in excess of 1 million copies sold.
Danny Mejia and Steven Tejada, from the Dominican Republic, formed the duo Xtreme in 2003. Focusing on bachata, a Latin musical style, they enjoyed great success throughout their home country, Puerto Rico and the United States, along with several other countries with Spanish as their native tongue. Their self-titled debut album was a moderate commercial success. However, this was far outdone by the performance of their 2006-released album, "Haciendo Historia," which peaked at no. 13 in the US Billboard Top Latin Albums Charts. The album was eventually awarded platinum certification by the RIAA.
