Biography

SWV, also known as Sisters With Voices, are an American female R&B/new jack swing trio from New York that formed as three school friends in 1990: Cheryl “Coko” Gamble (born June 13, 1974), Tamara “Taj” Johnson (born 1974), and Leanne “Lelee” Lyons (born 1976). All three girls began getting their singing experience in church at a young age. Teddy Riley took notice of a demo tape the trio had created. He was one of the main producers responsible for the making of their debut album, It’s About Time, released in 1992. The album was certified double platinum within its first year of release. SWV’s series of top 10 hits on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart made them one of the most successful and popular urban groups of the 1990s.

Their first single, “Right Here”, was released in the autumn of 1992. It peaked at #13 on the R&B chart, but the hit follow-up single, “I’m So Into You”, is what caused them to become a commercial force among urban fans. The two singles were followed by the biggest hits of their career, “Weak” and “Right Here/Human Nature” (a remix of their first single featuring samples of Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature”). “Weak” became their only single to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart where it stayed for 2 weeks while “Right Here (Human Nature)” peaked at #2. The fifth single, “You’re Always on My Mind” was another top ten R&B hit.
