The Whispers new CD, on their independent label “Satin Tie”, has made the Jet Top 20, a feat that is unheard of in the age of rap and contemporary R&B where classic soul artists are considered extinct and radio station staff and DJ’s seem fearful of playing any of their new material. Well, the musical community has spoken and the reluctant Program Directors have been overruled. The May 22nd issue of Jet has posted “For Your Ears Only” at number 18 based on a national response of retailers, distributors, music executives and industry musicians. Speaking with Sylvia Flanagan, Senior Editor at Jet Magazine, urban America’s premier news outlet and pacesetter, Ms. Flanagan and the Whispers’ Marketing Director both agreed that good music is good music no matter who sings it and regardless of the genre. The many skeptics that had warned the Whispers that their style of music couldn’t compete with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Kanye West, and 50 Cent must have forgotten about that silent majority of “Baby Boomers” who had been quietly waiting for that smooth, sultry “Whispers” music to reappear. Quoting Mike T, DJ at Sirius Radio Channel 53, “"THEY PUT THEIR FOOT IN IT”! I can't get past the first 4 cuts (keep playing them over and over). Hip Hop Artist's make music to Shoot Guns and Drive By's and Artist's like the Whispers make music to Make Love to; what a difference.” Houston and Chicago DJs are reporting that steppers are stepping all over the country to the #1 and #4 cuts. With a release date of the standard edition scheduled for June 23, the Collector’s Limited Edition that dropped on February 10 originally to be available via internet stores and on the Whispers’ tour, has been in such demand that it has been released to retail outlets and distributors who can’t seem to keep enough copies. Their single, BUTTA” written by Teena Marie has been in the top 10 at KBLX Radio for the past two months. Soultracks.com has reported that “For Your Ears Only’ is the album of the month for May 2006 based on customer demands and the number of hits on its site. The CD has been number one for six weeks at CDBABY.COM and for five weeks on the “Rhythm and Soul” charts on Solar Radio in the UK. AMAZON.COM can’t keep enough in stock.

As many fans have continuously stated, “The Whispers Just Get Better With Time”.
