From The Vault: Jodeci – ‘Love U 4 Life’

Published: Sunday 25th May 2008 by Sam
This week’s From The Vault video comes in form of Jodeci’s 1995 smash ‘Love U 4 Life’. Arguably one of the greatest R&B groups to emerge in the 90’s, Jodeci delivered what many believed to be their career defining LP (their last) with ‘The Show, The After Party, The Hotel’ – from which ‘Love U 4 Life’ – a personal favourite of mine – was lifted. Check out the video, which features cameos from TLC’s T-Boz as well as Rev Run below:

Watching this back and reminiscing on some of their other hits such as ‘Freak N You’ ‘Lately’ and ‘Cry For You’, really makes the group’s current predicament (cash strapped and drugged out) all the more unfortunate. Still, the legacy they left behind, as evidenced by the string of hits they racked up, will ensure that they will forever have a place in R&B history.

    make an extra 500-600 dollars a month

    all you have to do is sign up, create a user name and password, then check your e-mail and confirm your registration, after that you can start taking surveys for cash.

    Remember to put your correct address cause they mail out checks once a month.

    usually agree with you sam but when you call Jodeci’s last lp career-defining, i have to interject and set the record straight. devante himself will tell you that they were chasing the success of their breakthrough debut cd forever my lady over the two subsequent releases. the show, the afterparty, the hotel is a good cd, but no forever my lady.
