    Congrats


    Vocally and aesthetically, the Monica version is more to my liking. Deal.

        I never knew the Monica version as a kid, so it was Eternal's version I grew up with being from the UK.

        Eternal really did have the discography (and typical girl group drama) to be huge in America. And this song proves it - the fact Monica took it all the way to #1 on Billboard. It wasn't even Eternal's biggest hit either. "Stay" could've been a (bigger) hit in the US too, "Good Thing", "Power of a Woman", "Just A Step From Heaven" (sick video), "I Wanna Be The Only One" etc. etc.

        I also loved that there were 3 black girls and 1 white girl in the group...You don't see that setup often, it's usually the other way round. I really liked having Louise in the group tbh. A shame she left. I encourage anyone stateside or anyone not familiar with the group, to check them out! Vocally, Easther's voice was up there with the other 90's US R&B girl groups of the time.

        "Stay" was actually a top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 too, so it's totally odd that they stopped releasing music in America after that. Clearly they had a bit of interest with their debut single, so it made no sense not to build on that. Talk about missed opportunity!
        they released sweet funky thing as a promo after stay.... it stalled #54 in r&b airplay... In 90s; EMI never was never supporting european acts in us..even roxette's popularity faded in us... eternal was so suitable for us market... I bet easther got mad, when she learned that this song got #1 in us
