Her songs "Shake It Up" and "I'm Hot Tonight" were included in the soundtrack to the film Scarface. Those same songs were later included in the lineup of fictional radio station Flashback 95.6 in the Grand Theft Auto III video game.

She also had a top 10 hit in 1987 with the song "Mind Over Matter" which is featured in the movie Summer School.
