Louisville r&b trio Playa scored a top 10 single on the r&b charts with their 1998 song “Cheers 2 U.” The group, with the help of the production of Timbaland, released only one album; “Cheers 2 U” in the same year. Ten years later, the group lost one of its members with the passing of Static Major, who was on the verge of a bright solo career.
