    Lord not only was the movie great but that soundtrack. Still listen to every track Baby face pen game was no joke. All the ladies did their business on those tracks ✊❤❤❤ real vocalist and singers with perfect chemistry.

    The movie was good but the soundtrack was everything! Whitney, Brandy & Mary J had platinum selling hits from the album, while Aretha, Chaka, Patti, SWV, TLC, Faith & Toni had amazing songs too. Babyface wrote Let It Go for Whitney but she gave it to Toni. Wish we could hear her version.

    That’s it!?!?!?…….I’m sorry but y’all falling off man. Before time y’all used to give us more insight then that. You didn’t speak to cultural impact it had nor the fact movie soundtracks don’t often do that well or to the legends that were on it…..come on juicy do better!
