While there aren't any popular girl groups today, back in the 1990's there were plenty and SWV was the cream of the crop. Touting members Tamara "Taj" Johnson-George, Cheryl "Coko" Clemons and Leanne "LeLee" Lyons, the New York City threesome gave us some of R&B's most memorable hits like "Weak," "Right Here" and "You're The One." In April 2012, the ladies released their fifth album "I Missed Us," and since we did long for SWV, here's a look back at the trio's history.
Make sure you get your tickets to see the ladies at the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival!
In 1992, SWV, comprised of Leanne “Lelee” Lyons, Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, and Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George, released their first album, produced by the king of New Jack Swing Teddy Riley. “It’s About Time” changed this threesome into R&B stars. Here are Taj, LeeLee and Coko eight months after their debut’s release, backstage at Northern California’s KMEL Summer Jam concert in 1993.
