During that decade, music fans were gifted with a surplus of groups with distinct styles, the emergence of subgenres such as New Jack Swing and neo soul and classic songs being crafted by producers and songwriters such as Babyface, Timbaland, Jermaine Dupri and Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to name a few. Although the R&B sound has changed over the last 30 years, the '90s sound is still sampled and appreciated by today's rising stars. In honor of one of music's most timeless eras, here's a list of 25 of the greatest R&B songs of the '90s.
Whitney Houston is known as one of the greatest vocalists in music history and it was well proved throughout her career. One of the best-selling singles of all time was her 1992 cover of the Dolly Parton hit "I Will Always Love You." The song broke many records, including Houston's longest-running No. 1 single and the longest-running top single from a movie soundtrack.
Not only were songwriting duo Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis penning hits, but they also were discovering artists like the group Mint Condition. On its debut album, "Meant To Be Mint," its most successful single to date is the smooth ballad "Breakin' My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)." The song was a top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been sampled by artists such as Amerie and Remy Ma.
The '90s was a prime time for songwriter Diane Warren, who was known for penning hit ballads. She accomplished that same feat when she wrote Toni Braxton's 1996 single, "Un-Break My Heart." The song became one of Braxton's biggest hits, topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nearly three months and winning a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance.
New Edition most recently took the stage last month at the "Battle of Boston" musical face-off during the American Music Awards. The group, comprised of Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Michael Bivins, Johnny Gill, Ricky Bell, and Ralph Tresvant, battled it out against Boston's own, New Kids On the Block, showing fans they still got it, performing some of their biggest hits, while hitting those iconic dance moves.
His first show in 33 years, how could I miss a chance to see the legendary Chuckii Booker AND University 2.0 live? The night was even more incredible than I'd imagined. Here are the details on the greatest concert of my life!
The Boyz made a series of great videos for their hits "End of the Road," "I'll Make Love to You" and "Water Runs Dry," but for its cameos alone, "On Bended Knee" rises above. In the clip, each band member breaks up with and eventually reconciles with a girlfriend, played by four famous actresses: Victoria Rowell, Renée Jones and, most importantly for nostalgia addicts, Kim Fields (Tootie from "The Facts of Life" and later "Living Single") and Lark Voorhies (that's Lisa Turtle from "Saved by the Bell" to you).
Regardless of your age, chances are you know every word to many of Boyz II Men's greatest hits, so it's hard to pick just one defining tune. But there really is something special about 1994's "I'll Make Love to You." Discounting their Carey collab "One Sweet Day," the song is the band's biggest standalone hit (14 weeks at #1). The Babyface-written song defines the phrase "power ballad" and won the group a 1995 Grammy for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
