As one of the pioneers of Contemporary R&B, SWV are often cited as the blueprint for the formula that is the urban girl group.
For, with their classics ‘Weak‘ and ‘I’m So Into You‘ just as loved today as they were when they released, there is little doubt of the impact they have made Pop culture and R&B music alike.
Now, hours after the surfacing of their latest release ‘Cosign‘, the group have shared their thoughts on Destiny’s Child front woman Beyonce, who was just 11 when their hit ‘Right Here’ topped the charts.
Their comments below…
On the ‘Party‘ Prima’s rise to success, LeLee explained:
I really enjoyed seeing Beyonce blossom because I have history with her. I always knew she was the star she is today back when she was way younger. It was just in her.
When asked on time away from the spotlight had affected them, she went onto reveal:
I wouldn’t say it was the greatest, but it was peaceful. You didn’t have to worry about people constantly picking on you for no reason. I went to church a lot more and my relationship with God flourished.
I really got to see music change, especially for the women. Sometimes I didn’t know if they were selling records or their ass lol.
In the interview with Vibe Vixen, the ladies also dished on how they hope to be received by younger audiences:
I think the fans are going to receive us well. We’re not going to try to be anything other than SWV.
We do have a lot of younger fans though–some of them know the songs, but can’t put a face to it. They know the songs because of their mom and older family and friends who came up in our era.
We’d like to bring the younger fans in our world of real music. Music that is honest and doesn’t lie. We want them to know that lovemaking is not a hit and run, but a process.
