Hey Everyone, It’s the end of the 90’s era I’m afraid for this Female Artists Hits Series. I hope you’ve enjoyed this era as much as I have.
SWV – I’m So Into You – This girl group had it goin’ on! I was hooked instantly to their harmony. Smooth beats and sultry voices.
Mary J. Blige – I’m Goin’ Down – Come on now….who doesn’t love this Queen? MJB was destined to be a star. This song, man, I love it. She will give you chills up your spine with that powerful voice.
Britney Spears – (You Drive Me) Crazy – I know, she lip syncs every time she performs. But when she records her music, she makes money making hits. I’ve always been a Britney fan. Nope, I’ll never pay to see her perform live but I’ll listen to her pop music anytime. This was one of my very favorites.
Jade – Don’t Walk Away – I hate to say it but this is the only song I’ve ever heard from Jade but I can remember bobbing my head to it and learning their sexy moves. I can also remember wearing my cut off shorts with the combat boots too. Yikes.
Destiny’s Child – Bug A Boo – This is when DC hit the scene and this was my joint. I went to the beach when this first came out and I was with four of my girlfriends. We sang the hell out of this song all week too.
Christina Aguilera – What A Girl Wants – Sigh….Christina Darling, you came out strong, killin’ it! She was this tiny little powerhouse that shook things up. We loved her and still do. She gets better and better every time she comes out with something new.
TLC – No Scrubs – They were iconic weren’t they? From their song Unpretty, Baby Baby Baby, to this one – unforgettable. RIP Lisa Left Eye Lopes
Garbage – Stupid Girl – Shirley Manson wasn’t fucking around. She came to take names. Can I put bad ass and classic in the same sentence? Who cares, she was both.
Missy Elliot / Nicole Wray- Make It Hot – Nicole Wray had this raspy voice that was one of a kind. The hook to this was obsessive and haunting wasn’t it? Missy comes in at the end and shakes the walls a bit with her rhymes. I’m a gigantic fan of Missy and I’ll have more on her in the 2000’s. She’s my girl!
Stay tuned for next weeks 2000 – 2010 series of female artist. Can’t wait!
