Mission to Please

Mission to Please is a 1996 album by The Isley Brothers on Island Records. This album was a return to commercial glory for the band in the years following their last platinum-certified album, 1983's Between The Sheets as it also was certified platinum based on the strength of the charted singles "Let's Lay Together", their first R. Kelly collaboration after the success of their duet together, "Down Low", the Babyface-composed ballad, "Tears", the Ronald and Angela Winbush-duet collaboration, "Floatin' On Your Love", and the mid-'90s quiet storm radio staple, "Mission to Please You". Some of the success came off the fact that Ronald had cultivated a new image as the video villain, "Mr. Biggs", in a series of R. Kelly videos starting with "Down Low" helping to re-introduce the music of the Isley Brothers to a new generation of R&B fans.
