On The Rise" became their second gold album, hitting number seven R&B in the summer of 1983. The formula continued to work: "Just The Way You Like It" (including the number six R&B single "Just The Way You Like It") went to number six R&B in the fall of 1984 and "Sands Of Time" (including the number two R&B hit "The Finest") went gold and hit number four R&B in the spring. Many of these releases, as well as the sound of early releases, helped to popularize the now-classic sound of the TR-808 Roland drum machine. In August 1994, former lead vocalist Mary Davis reunited with Abdul Ra'oof and together they reconstructed a new band with the same funky . sound, appearing on comedian Sinbad's HBO concert specials and Rhino's various-artists set United We Funk, issued October 5, 1999.

After a strong start at the beginning of the 1980s, the . Band quickly hit that rut which is so sadly common among young bands needing a second shot of gold and, by 1983, they were teetering on the edge of an oncoming oblivion. Band found themselves firmly on the top of the charts and in the public eye.

SOS Band’s fourth album, aptly titled On The Rise, was released in 1983 on Tabu Records. On The Rise is a perfect album title for this solid release since the group’s previous two albums did not make much of a dent on the charts or at radio. On The Rise changed all that as SOS Band made a glorious come back here, aided greatly by the stellar and sophisticated production of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.

Abdullah was curious as to why an Atlanta-based band named itself Santa Monica. Keyboardist Jason Bryant replied that the band had an enjoyable concert in Santa Monica, CA. Abdullah then came up with a new band name, the . standing for "Sounds of Success. Scoring with the slammin' number two hit "Just Be Good to Me" and the number five beatbox ballad "Tell Me if You Still Care," On the Rise became their second gold album hitting number seven R&B in summer 1983. The formula continued working: Just the Way You Like It (including the number six R&B single "Just the Way You Like It") went to number six R&B in fall 1984 and Sands of Time (including the number two R&B hit "The Finest") went gold and hit number four R&B in spring 1986.

Their second album, Too, went to number 30 R&B in summer 1981. On the band's third LP, . Band III, they worked with producer Leon Sylvers III and the Time's Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
