I love them, I was too young when they came out but I discovered them around the early 2000s! I hope they release another album! :D :D

They came out in 1992 like TLC. When did you discover TLC?

TLC was huge here, I already knew about them in 1994-1995 because of "Waterfalls" and "Creep".

SWV's reality show is a riot. They really didn't get along.

The lead singer, Coko, is very aloof and is torn between her Christian roots, and Leelee is the wild child.

I've watched all seasons of their reality show, and it's really good. They're songs were really catchy, but I hadn't realized how sexual they were until Coko pointed it out.

SWV Returns With 'Ain't No Man' Single & New Album

“Man” hit No. 4 on the Trending 140 chart.

R&B trio SWV is back, and they’ve already found a welcome audience on the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 chart.

The hitmaking trio released a new track Friday (Aug. 7), “Ain’t No Man,” a welcome continuation of their trademark sultry jams. The single previews their fifth studio album, an as-yet-untitled set due Oct. 30. Upon release, “Man” shot to No. 4 on the Trending 140 chart.

Top 20 Most Underrated Girl Group Songs

“Man” is a tender ode that praises their ideal man, with the sisters' strong harmonies crooning on the chorus, “Yup, he know he got a queen/ Now ladies if you got a king, say it with me now/ Ain’t no man like the one I got.”

SWV -- consisting of Cheryl Clemons, Tamara Johnson and Leanne Lyons -- climbed to stardom in the early 1990s with a string of harmony-laced hit singles. Between 1993 and 1998, the group scored nine top 10 singles on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, including the No. 1s “Weak,” “Right Here (Human Nature)/Downtown” and “You’re the One.” Their debut album, It’s About Time, has sold 2.6 million in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, and peaked at No. 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, spending 84 weeks on the list.

Following their five-year run of hits, the group disbanded in 1998 for the members to pursue other projects, but they re-formed in 2005. Since reuniting, the trio released the album I Missed Us in 2012, which debuted at No. 6 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Just watched them open for TLC, Coko is brilliant live. Leelee and Tash were so hilarious, they knew how to work the crowd.

Fat Joe, SWV, James Brown & More Slated for New 'Unsung' Season: Exclusive

Newly minted Grammy nominee Fat Joe, ‘90s girl group SWV and soul/funk pioneer James Brown are among the artists comprising the new lineup for TV One’s longest-running show, Unsung. The acclaimed R&B, soul and hip-hop music series will premiere its 10th season on Jan. 4 (8 p.m. ET).

Rounding out Unsung’s forthcoming slate will be episodes profiling fellow artists Jon B., Lenny Williams, Case, Dave Hollister and After 7. The series is narrated by actor Gary Anthony Williams.

SWV will launch the 10th season of Unsung on Jan. 4, followed by Fat Joe (Jan. 11), Jon B. (Jan. 18), Lenny Williams (Jan. 25), Case (Feb. 1), Dave Hollister (Feb. 8) and After 7 (Feb. 15). A special tribute to James Brown (Feb. 22) -- featuring actor Chadwick Boseman (Brown biopic Get on Up), Full Force and Kwame, among others -- will wrap up the season’s eight-episode arc.

“Unsung’s in-depth first-person interviews, the participation of family and friends, the attention to detail invested into sharing each artist’s story and, of course, the music are the staples that have made this series ‘must-see TV,’” said TV One president Brad Siegel in a release announcing the new season. “After 129 episodes and nine seasons, Unsung is still TV One’s most anticipated series.”
Definitely don't believe they're Unsung.

Their episode was cute, although I knew about what all had happened with their split. They had some bops tho.

It's True: An SWV Biopic Is Finally In The Works

Talk of an SWV biopic has been swirling for years, particularly since the group did a WE TV reality show in 2013.

While Cheryl “Coko” Gamble, Leanne “LeLee” Lyons and Tamera “Taj” Johnson-George are still making music, their story of becoming one of the most regarded R&B groups has yet to be told on screen. But fans might not have to wait much longer.

“We’re actually in talks [for] a SWV biopic, so stay tuned,” Coko told HipHop DX in a recent interview. “There’s so much that people don’t know.”

“Everyone’s interested,” LeLee added.

Their highest selling album was 1992’s “It’s About Time” that featured “Weak”, “Right Here” and “I’m So Into You." In addition to their songs being sampled by Michael Jackson and Pharrell Williams, they've also been nominated for two Grammys.

No word on what channel the biopic will be on, but we can’t wait to tune in.

One of my all time favourites groups and the first album I owned on CD :lol:

I watched their unsung I knew they didn't like the release some tension album but I didn't know they hated it. Their are a lot of guests but for me some of those songs are classic bops.

^You mean "Release Some Tension"? :lol:

Yeah comparing their first two albums to their third one is a massive change. You could tell they weren't digging it (although Can We is a bop). they only like "Rain" from that album (which is the only song that sounds like their other albums).

New Beginnings is everything though.
