Ten City was a Chicago, Illinois based dance-pop/house music trio who enjoyed a number of club hits and Urban radio hits in the eighties and nineties. Lead by vocalist Byron Stingily, the band also included guitarist Herb Lawson, keyboardist Byron Burke and producer Marshall Jefferson. Ten City's debut album, "Foundation" became their only album to crossover, peaking at #49 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Of their ten entries on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, they are best remembered for "That's the Way Love Is," which hit #1 in 1989 and is still considered to be a House classic today. Stingily, who left the group and became a successful solo artist, rerecorded the song and brought it back to #1 on the dance chart in 1999.
