AccuRadio Song Of The Day-SWV

Song:I'm So Into You
Album:It's About Time

Sisters With Voices (SWV) was one of several R & B girl groups to have success in the early 90s. Most of SWV's success was with their 1992 debut CD It's About Time. I'm So Into You was their breakthrough hit. They split up in 1998 but have reunited and now have a reality show. Cheryl "Coko" Gamble, Tamara "Taj" Johnson and Leanne "Lelee" Lyons all grew up singing in church in Brooklyn and went to high school together. They sent out a demo and got a contract with RCA Records. It's About Time was their 1992 debut CD. The first single Right Here was a top 20 R & B hit. I'm So Into You was the second single and it reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100. I'm So Into You and several songs on the album were written and produced by Brian Alexander Morgan. He worked with SWV on most of their 90s run and also produced Coko when she went solo. The next single Weak was SWV's only number one hit. It's About Time was certified 3XPlatinum. It's available as a budget CD. SWV recorded three more albums including a Christmas album. They weren't as successful and they split up in 1998. Coko wanted to go solo and had success with the 1999 album Hot Coko. She has also recorded gospel albums. Tamara went into modeling and then married NFL star running back Eddie George. She was also a contestant on Survivor: Tocantins. SWV announced they were reuniting in 2005 but it didn't happen. Then they toured briefly in 2007. Tamara was on the TV One reality series I Married A Baller. SWV finally reunited and released the CD I Missed Us Apr. 2012 on eOne. And now an SWV reality show is set to debut on We TV early 2014. No doubt it will focus on the continuing tension between these three women. Here's the video for I'm So Into You by SWV.
