Drummer Ollie Brown and bassist Jerry Knight were two Detroit-based sessions musicians who were also members of Raydio, along with Ray Parker, Jr. In 1984, Brown and Knight were hired to provide songs for the soundtrack of the upcoming breakdancing movie Breakin’. There’s No Stopping Us was named after a line that was spoken by one of the characters in the film and it was meant to not only reflect what was happening in the movie but also Ollie and Jerry’s own struggle and determination to make it in the music biz.
The video is made up entirely of clips from the movie. (The video’s credited director Joel Silberg also directed Breakin’. It seems if anyone deserve credit for the video, though, it’s the editor who put it together.) Jean-Claude Van Damme was an extra in Breakin‘ and supposedly, he can be spotted dancing in this video. I think I spotted him at the 2:32 mark, dancing in a crowd, but I could be wrong.
