Heeding his advice Word Up is released as a single in August of 1986, and explodes immediately. Its momentum is so great, that it quickly crosses over to top 40 pop radio and becomes Cameo’s biggest hit. The band’s progressive funky style also extends to their visual image as well. On the album cover and music video for the song, which features actor Levar Burton (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Reading Rainbow) as a police detective pursuing them, Cameo are decked out in clothing by French haute couture designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. The huge success of Word Up propels the accompanying album to Platinum status in the US, and earns the band a Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal in 1987. The song is later covered by Gun, Mel B of The Spice Girls and Korn.
