The second Beat album, Wha'ppen? was supported by extensive touring, including a United States tour with the Pretenders and Talking Heads. The album yielded more UK hits, with "All Out to Get You", "Drowning" and "Doors of Your Heart", all of which broke into the Top 40 of the UK Singles Chart  . In mid-2014, the English Beat starring Dave Wakeling announced a new studio album entitled Here We Go Love!.

Wha'ppen? Well their early fans might ask, but The (English) Beat were growing up fast, and for every member of the Two Tone army that bemoaned the lack of punk fire found here, they enlisted a new recruit taken with their maturing sounds and more diverse stylings. The album's taster "Drowning," coupled with another album track "All Out to Get You," may have disappointed chartwise, barely breaking into the Top 25, but it did not reflect the fate of the full-length, which soared to Number Three

Wha'ppen ‎(Cass, Album). fazendo referência a Wha'ppen?, LP, Album, SRK 3567. Responder Notifique-me Helpful. I'd like to give this closer to . out of 5. It's not a bad album by any means, but it just doesn't live up to the tremendous standard set by their debut and their final LP, "Special Beat Service. This sophomore LP suffers a bit from lesser songwriting; "I Am Your Flag" could be a Haircut 100 outtake with overly earnest lyrics. The main problem, however, is the unsympathetic production. On "Monkey Murders," secret weapon Saxa sounds like he's playing from the room next door, with unwise compensation in the form of excessive reverb.

About The English Beat. Formed in Birmingham in 1978, this much loved multi-racial sextet (Dave Wakeling, guitar/vocals; Rankin' Roger, vocals; Andy Cox, guitar; Dave Steel, bass; Everett Moreton, drums; Saxa, saxophone) took the Specials' blueprint and added high-spirited pop appeal, all spiced up with a ska authenticity provided by legendary bluebeat saxophonist Saxa. Taking a less commercial and more reggae-influenced approach on 1981's follow up album, Wha'ppen, the band rallied for the following year's Special Beat Service, which as well as boasting MTV hits "Save It for Later" and "I Confess" included Dave Wakeling's soporific swansong "End Of The Party," a clear influence on Blur.
