'89 | Spread!.......Heart!

One of my favorite songs by Troop, "Spread My Wings," off of Attitude. R&B music pure and simple. Great lyrics on top of classic new jack swing beats, and they killed the choreography in this video.

8709 | Classic

I don't know about you'll, but i still buy albums. I admit I appreciate certain other sources of music, but I love the feeling of tearing the wrapper, opening the case, and reaching for the liner notes. I was able to visit a record store today, that's right they still exist, and bought two classic albums.
Heart Break, New Edition - 1988 I may have only been a year old, but "If This Isn't Love" remains my favortie NE song. The video was classic, and nothing says eighties R&B more than Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. New Beginning, SWV - 1996 One of the hottest R&B groups of the 90s, SWV took the industry by storm with their new jill swing heavy debut It's About Time. For the second round, they examined a more smooth R&B sound. My favorite track here is "Use Your Heart," which was written and produced by a then unknown Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo.

'97 | Rather not...

Saturday night I decided to indulge in a mini movie night with my sister, her friend, and my cousin. We did not have many choices so we decided to check out some old films we had not seen. 1) Sipke Lee's Jungle Fever; and 2) the little known black film Hav Plenty. I had seen the end of the comedy romance on Encore, but wanted to see the rest. Maybe it was just me, or a 90s thing, but this film was awful it was good. I got the premise and the attempt to be a different black film, but this seemed like a high school play. I cannot find the words to describe, so I'm allowing a guest writer, my cousin Brandon. THIS WAS AWFUL.... i mean usually i'm able to figure out and understand movies but this one just did not make any sense. The scenes didn't flow with each other, the whole plot was super confusing, and the acting was pretty dreadful as well..... If anyone is a fan of this movie....well good for you ha.. (SBS)
