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 April 1994 SWV released their biggest hit, a balled called “Weak.” Detailing an all consuming love, “Weak” shot up the R&B charts and eventually went platinum, selling one million copies. In addition, the song, written by songwriter producer Brian Alexander Morgan, was meant to express his feeling toward another singer Chante Moore.
