Listen to Al B. Sure’s ‘Nite and Day’ from Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Ep. 1 at the gay bar

American hip hop, urban, R&B singer songwriter Al B. Sure’s ‘Nite and Day‘ was that fabulous track playing on episode 1 of DAHMER — Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story as Jeffrey walks into the gay bar and begins talking to the three African American men sitting at the bar.

The instantly recognizable song if you grew up in the late 1980s, or was a DJ at a radio station playing the song back then like I was, was Al B. Sure’s debut single.

The track and the album came out in 1988 on the Warner Music record label.

A new jack swing single that almost immediately became a hit for the then-just 20-year-old musician after it was released as the lead single for his debut album In Effect Mode,

The song charted at #1 on the Hot Black Singles chart, and also placed at #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The catchy track gained Al B. Sure even more recognition the year after its release when it was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance.

The song also grabbed the attention of fans when a music video for ‘Nite and Day’ was released and promoted heavily on networks like MTV and VH1.

The video featured the singer in various locations around New York City both during the day and at night, with a heavy emphasis on romantic looking rooftops.
