Jodeci is an award-winning R&B group comprising singer-songwriter DeVante Swing, Mr. Dalvin, Jojo, and K-Ci. The group released several highly-acclaimed studio albums after signing with record label, Uptown Records. In 1991, they released their first number 1 R&B single, “Forever My Lady,” which also peaked at number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was followed by two more number 1 R&B singles, “Stay” and the gold-certified hit, “Come & Talk to Me.” These songs were spawned by the band’s debut album, Forever My Lady. The triple-platinum certified record performed phenomenally on the charts, peaking at number 18 on the Billboard 200 and topping the Heatseekers and Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. Jodedi dropped two more records, Diary of a Mad Band and The Show, the After Party, the Hotel. Both albums topped the R&B charts and entered Billboard 200’s Top 5. The group later announced their hiatus, and members pursued their own projects. Jodeci had a spin-off duo K-Ci and Jojo, who released the smashing 1997 hit “All My Life.” The song dominated the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed at the top for three weeks.
In 2014, the group performed a medley of their hits at the Soul Train Awards, including a snippet of their new song, “Nobody Wins.” That same year, music producer Timbaland announced that the group was in the process of releasing a comeback album. True enough, Jodeci released their new album, The Past, the Present, the Future, one year later.
R&B vixens SWV, short for Sisters with Voices, achieved incredible commercial success during the ‘90s. The trio has released five studio albums and sold over 25 million copies worldwide. Their sensational hit, “Weak,” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and R7B charts, while their 1993 single, “Right Here/Human Nature,” peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. Both songs were featured on their debut album, It’s About Time, which sold over three million copies in the U.S. SWV's career has resulted in numerous accolades, including two Grammy nominations in 1997 and 2013 and a Soul Train Lady of Soul Award in 2017.
