Song Lyric Sunday | “Heat of the Moment” – After 7

SLS Banner

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Cool/Freeze/Heat/Melt.


Heat of the Moment was one of those songs. When it was released as the lead single from the self-titled debut album of R&B group After 7 in August of 1989, it went all the way to #5 on the Billboard R&B charts but stalled at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100. However, the single re-entered the Hot 100 in late 1990 and went all the way to #19.

The song was co-written by singer/songwriter/record executives Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds and Antonio “L.A.” Reid, founders of LaFace Records. Babyface is also the younger brother of After 7 members Melvin and Kevon Edmonds.


  • Keith Mitchell, the third member of the group, was marketed as the cousin of L.A. Reid. The men were not related. Mitchell was a college buddy of Kevon Edmonds.
  • After 7’s debut album was certified platinum by the RIAA in November 1990.
  • After suffering a stroke in 2011, elder brother, Melvin, had been in poor health, but seemed to rebound in recent years, rejoining the group in 2016 for its comeback album, Timeless. But he died unexpectedly in May of 2019 at the age of 65.

With the temps in Tucson reaching triple digits everyday for over a week, I know how the women in the Heat of the Moment video feel. The guys are trying to hook up and the looks the ladies give them are hilarious!

  1. I love After 7! You know my New Jack Swing heart pretty well. (I am actually a big fan of New Jack Swing) My favorite After 7 song is “Ready or Not”. But, “Heat of the Moment” is perfect too!
