The Sugar Ray group has a long history before their modern name. The original name, overlapping with the name of one toy, had to be changed due to the threat of persecution from the copyright holder. As a result of some reflections, the name became consonant with the name of one boxer, who was admired by some members of the group. “Sugar Ray” at the beginning of their activities, the group worked in the style of funk metal. However, the lack of meaningful results led to the search for his own style. The result of this search creativity was the emergence of various incendiary rhythms for summer motifs. Groove hip-hop, sunshine pop and reggae elements made it possible to create a carefree atmosphere in the musical composition, both in the text and in the musical part of the song. It was this lightness that allowed the group not to disappear, like many one-day groups.
