Biography

Before Savage signed a record deal, she parlayed success into gigs as a session musician, singer, and songwriter with artists such as CeCe Peniston and Tanya Blount, she co-wrote Peniston’s number one Dance single “We Got a Love Thang”. In 1993 she released her first single “If You Believe” from her debut album Here We Go…, her follow up “Betcha’ll Never Find” became a top twenty dance and R&B hit on the Billboard chart. She also released the singles “Don’t Let It Go to Your Head” and “Give It to Ya”.

In 1995 she teamed up with Aaliyah, En Vogue, BlackGirl, Mary J. Blige, Vanessa Williams, SWV, and others for the single “Freedom” from the movie Panther.

Savage took two years off before she returned in 1996 with “I Will Survive” from her second album I Will Survive (Doin’ It My Way). The lead single became a moderate smash in the U.S., where it reached #5 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks chart, and number 12 in the UK. The single was also certified Gold by the RIAA for US single sales of over 500,000 units. In 1997 she, along with Deborah Cox, Heavy D, and Brownstone performed Janet Jackson’s #1 single “That’s the Way Love Goes” at the Soul Train Music Awards tribute to the popular icon [2]. In 1998 Savage scored another minor hit with “Reminding Me (Of Sef)”, performed by Common. It was a top 10 hit on Billboard’s Hot Rap chart.
