Respect SWV Or Get Your Brains Knocked Out


SWV “Right Here (Funkyman Remix) (1993) (Produced by Lord Finesse)

Why is it that TLC is always credited as being the greatest female R&B group of the 90s, while SWV gets remembered as an anonymous, talentless one hit wonder?

Sure, maybe SWV didn’t have an extremely annoying rapper in their group, but after TLC’s first album, their musical relationship to hip-hop was tenuous, at best. While SWV was a more traditional R&B group, with Teddy Riley’s post-New Jack Swing swagger and crytal clear slow jams, TLC’s music quickly became a washed out, adult contemporary comprimise of R&B. This allowed TLC to stay at the top of the charts throughout the 90s, while SWV slowly floundered into obscurity. Aside from their regular producer Brian Morgan, SWV worked with some of the best producers of the decade: Timbaland, Puffy and The Neptunes all collaborated with the girls early in their careers. Oh, and we musn’t forget the obvious: SWV can sang (at least Coko can), while T-Boz and Chili’s frail-ass pipes can’t even compete.

I guess another reason SWV gets written off is because they didn’t quite have the charisma of T-Boz, Chili and Lefteye, nor were they as good-looking (Although I will say that I always had a soft spot for Taj, the “shy one”). I still prefer SWV because they always came off kind of like three nice church girls who somehow got conned into wearing leather daisy dukes and singing the devil’s music. Regardless of who you prefer, Coko, Taj and Lelee had a gang of hits that still bang today. And now, the definitive collection:
