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.
SWV (Sisters With Voices) electrified the urban contemporary world with It's About Time. Their deep, sensual harmonies, sometimes naughty lyrics and aggressive style immediately struck a responsive chord, particularly among male fans. Their CD shows their versatility, as they handled New Jack tunes, romantic ballads like "It's About Time," and sassy, innuendo-laden fare such as "Blak Pudd'n" and "That's What I Need." Their hits "Weak" and "Right Here" had the same blend of heat and vulnerability that underscore the best En Vogue material, and even though this CD was padded by remixes and repeats, it was still among the finest debuts issued in 1992.
