One of the top R&B vocal groups of the ’90s, Blackstreet first burst
onto the R&B scene with their self titled, platinum-selling album, which
produced hits such as ‘Before I Let You Go’, ‘Booti Call’ & ‘Joy’.
Blackstreet’s pop breakthrough came in 1996 with the album ‘Another
Level’. More specifically, it was the inescapable smash single ‘No
Diggity,’ which featured special guest Dr. Dre, that put them over the
top. ‘No Diggity’ reigned for four weeks on top of the pop charts and
won a Grammy for Best R&B Vocal by a Duo or Group; it also pushed sales
of Another Level past the four million mark. The follow-up single,
‘Don’t Leave Me,’ was an massive hit in 1997, and the group later made a
guest appearance on Jay-Z ’s ‘The City Is Mine’ and teamed with Mýa
and Mase for the hit ‘Take Me There’ from the Rugrats soundtrack.
Blackstreet’s third album, ‘Finally’, was released in early 1999, and
though it contained ‘Take Me There’ and ‘Girlfriend/Boyfriend’ with
Janet Jackson, helping the album into the Top Ten. The groups final
album, ‘Level II’, was released in early 2003.
Pop-oriented contemporary R&B artist Mya arrived in 1998, when she was
18 years old. Within only a few years, the singer, songwriter, and
dancer had two platinum albums and a gold one, a clutch of Top Ten pop
hits, and a Grammy Award.Just as significantly, she developed from an
artist frequently compared to the likes of Brandy and Aaliyah into one
with her own identity. Sounding innocent and knowing at once, while
consistently upbeat and confident, she released some of the most
memorable R&B singles of the late ’90s and early 2000s, including ‘It’s
All About Me,’ ‘Case of the Ex,’ and ‘Fallen.’ Mya took her rightful
place in a continuum of stylistically similar artists that gave way to
Ciara, Rihanna and Tinashe, among others.
A native New Yorker, Case got his start in the music biz in the ’90s,
singing backup on albums by several renowned R&B artists, such as
Usher.Signed to the Def Jam label in the mid-’90s, Case issued his
self-titled debut in 1996, followed by Personal Conversation in 1999 and
Open Letter in 2001. On the latter release, Case wrote each song with a
different person in mind ‘A Song for Skye’ was written for his daughter,
while the tracks ‘Love of My Life’ and ‘Shine’ were inspired by the
great Stevie Wonder. Case was joined by such big-name producers as Jimmy
Jam, Terry Lewis, and Tim & Bob. In 2004 he asked to be released from
his Def Jam contract in order to launch his own label, Indigo Blue. In
2009 The Rose Experience became the first release for the label. He
switched to Real Talk Entertainment for 2010’s Here, My Love, and moved
to eOne for 2015’s Heaven’s Door.
