Natural Selection was a duo that blended R&B and hip-hop for a couple successful singles and a self-titled album released in 1991. Elliot Erickson and Frederick Thomas formed the group in 1989. After their first recording, "Do Anything," caught on at the radio station where Erickson was employed, EastWest picked them up and gave the song a national release in 1991. That October, it reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100, topped only by Mariah Carey's "Emotions." An album and two additional singles followed, but a planned follow-up never reached fruition. Erickson and Thomas parted in 1992. Thomas kept the Natural Selection name alive informally, with John Swan and Shaun Ware brought into the group. A deal was sealed with SBK, but the label and, subsequently, the group, fell apart. Several years later, the three came back together and recorded again. They independently released an eight-song recording titled Infinity, which didn't stray far from the sound of the group's initial recordings. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
