Day 4 of #100daysofnewjack!

Here is yet another 90's girl group/New Jill Swing group that sadly went nowhere despite being hyped by their label as bringing a "fresh street perspective to R&B music." Unfortunately, there was no shortage of groups like this during the early to mid 90s (SWV, TLC to name a few) and although it got a positive review from Billboard Mag & made a noticeable impact on the Hot R&B Singles chart, these 3 ladies quickly followed like the others back into obscurity.

Good 2 Go Day 3 of #100daysofnewjack, let's get it!

Good 2 Go were brought together in Los Angeles by manager Hiriam Hicks and consisted of Kathy Webb, Melissa Miller, Missy Newman, Natalie Fernie and Cindy Shows. ⁣⁣Hicks had a deal with Giant Records to create a female group, and clearly the idea was to create a female version of Giant Records' biggest act at the time, Color Me Badd, the all-male and mostly all-white new jack swing group (and, according to Natalie, a rival for the Good Girls). ⁣⁣⁣The majority of the album was produced by...

So I decided to finally do a post on the New Jill Swing group #PrettyInPink!

Their singing likely had to do with the clout of the mom of one of their members, main singer and songwriter Indira Milini Khan, whose mother was soul diva Chaka Khan. The other members were Maurissa Tancharoen, Taniya Robinson, Tameika Chaney and Shey...

Too Bad to Be True, or TBTBT, was a Canadian hip hop group based in Toronto & Ontario. They were mostly active in the early 1990s. They were best known for their 1993 album One Track Mind, which won the Juno Award for Rap Recording of the Year at the 1994 Juno Awards. The group consisted of teenagers Jeromy "Lyric J" Robinson, Shaka "DJ Shaka" Dodd, Al "Al C" Cox, and Frankie "MC Styles" Scarcelli.

Happy birthday to the GOAT!

 

As a singer, producer, and songwriter, Babyface is an inescapable presence in virtually every major facet of pop music during the '90s! His own recordings helped rejuvenate the R&B tradition of the smooth, sensitive, urban crooner and made him a staple of urban contemporary radio. Yet their considerable success was eclipsed by his songwritin and production work for other artists, which linked him with some of the biggest stars and hit singles of the decade (and not just in the realm of R&B). You'd be hard-pressed to name a '90s hitmaker with...
