Martha Wash was sitting in a Los Angeles hotel room, furious and confused. It was late 1990 and the singer, relaxing before a show that night, had decided to unwind with some channel surfing. While none of the producers in Black Box publicly said why Quinol was used as the face of Black Box in videos over Wash, it wasn’t hard to figure out. When Dreamland was released in May 1990, the cover featured a crouching Quinol, clad in a cropped jacket and mini skirt, showing off her toned legs and staring longingly. Surprisingly, even after the lawsuits, Wash teamed up again with C+C Music Factory for their 1994 follow-up Anything Goes!, even appearing in the video for the album’s biggest hit Do You Wanna Get Funky. Wash says she made peace with Cole before his death in 1995.
