More often than not, when you hear someone yearning for the good old days when “music was music” they are referring to real R&B music especially 90’s music. We cannot speak of that wonderful era in music without mentioning the iconic R&B group, BLACKstreet who will be performing at the almost sold out Butterscotch Evenings 2 in Lagos at the Eko Convention Center on November 9th, 2013.
Blackstreet dominated the 90’s charts as one of the top selling, male, R&B groups bringing us ‘feel good music’ with hits like ‘Don’t Leave Me’ and “No Diggity’.
Lagos is humming with excitement as we humm along to our favourite Blackstreet tunes. Here in no particular order are 10 of the best that we can’t get out of our heads this week.
No Diggity featuring Dr. Dre - No Diggity was not just a song it was a movement! This smash single off their sophomore album ‘Another Level’ (1997) is no doubt (all pun intended) their most popular song.
Before I Let You Go – They don’t make ‘em like this anymore. This soulful song takes us back to a time when it was just about the song and not the producer. Great vocals you can feel deep in your soul without the ‘extras’.
Fix – “If you need a FIX!” We love this one for that signature Teddy Riley sound on the intro.
Don’t Leave Me – Hands down one of the best “baby please don’t go or I’ll die” songs EVER made.
Take Me There featuring Mya & Mase - This fun, pop-infused R&B single was off 'The Rugrats Movie' soundtrack. This is one of those songs that's just feels good to move to. You actually forget the intro is the actual theme music to 'The Rugrats'.
Booti Call - We're pretty sure we didn't know what a "booty call" was back in 1992 but it didn't stop us from belting it out then and it most definitely won't stop us now.
Joy - This melodious love song was co-written by Michael Jackson and we hear was supposed to be recorded by him. Listening to the song again we totally hear Michael all over it.
Girlfriend/Boyfriend featuring Janet Jackson, Eve & Ja Rule – Off their 1999 album ‘Finally’ this was a great collaboration and had us dancing
Get Me Home – I think we all agree that Foxy Brown’s first single off her ‘Il Na na’ album would not be the same without that signature Blackstreet sound. Come on you know you want to sing along “Uuuuuh bab-bayyy…gotta get you home with me tonight…Ooo..ooo..oooh!”
I Get So Lonely (remix) - Also a feature on this Janet Jackson ballad, it sounds like magic when you mesh the best of Janet’s sultry vocals with Blackstreet’s gritty sound. This is definitely one of our favourites!
You can expect to hear all your favourite hits from the 90’s at the show.
