I Like It Like That ~ Michael Rodgers 1988

Anyone know who he is?

Once I get some info on this guy, I will move this if he isn't associated with Prince or any of his proteges at all

I always thought it might have been Jesse Johnson

But this song always stood out in the movie Coming To America

that Minneapolis Sound

imageMichael Rodgers (born in Los Angeles, California) was a pop singer from the ’80s. Not much information is given about him, but he was signed to WTG Records.

imageIn 1988, he was featured on the soundtrack to the Eddie Murphy film “Coming to America” with the song “I Like it Like That” which peaked at #19 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart and #65 on Billboard’s Hot Black Singles chart, staying on the chart for 10 weeks.

A year later, Michael released his debut (and only) album “I Got Love.” It’s unknown how or if the album ever charted at all.

imageThe title song peaked at #18 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart. The follow-up single “It’s the Same Old Love” peaked at #50 on Billboard’s Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart as well.

After that, it seems as if Michael Rodgers has faded into obscurity. It’s unknown what he’s up to these days.
