That's a tune. They have quite a few hidden gems that many may not know about. "Slow Jams" with Babyface, "Tell Me How You Want It" (from a soundtrack), "I Wanna Be Where You Are" (another soundtrack), "Surprise Me", "Mystery" and "Can't Cope" were all off random compilations. The "I'm So Into You" Radio Remix with rap has completely different verses (love that one more than the original). Then you also have the extended version of the "Where Is The Love" interlude which features as a full track on another greatest hits knocking about. There is also an extended version of the slow album version of "Anything" that is on the cd single where it's a full track with a bridge.

I love these ladies! :D

Their string of 90s hits is so solid and nostalgic for me, especially the debut album hits. The 2nd album singles did little for me, unfortunately. But then Release Some Tension with Can We and Rain was a solid bookend to their 90s output.

I didn't know they have a holiday album - how is it? I feel like I should check it out.

Coko's version of Have Yourself s Merry Little Christmas is vocally unmatched.

Their first two albums were great. Personally, Release Some Tension is a dud in comparison to the first two albums minus a few songs (Can We, Rain, Lose My Cool).

Isn’t it? She’s a vocal beast. I love her live rendition on YouTube

I thought the production on the album as a whole was a bit cheesy (even by Christmas album standards) but I loved their unique take on O Holy Night. I've never heard it arranged like that before.

^^^ I swear they sound incredible. No one can match Coko's soprano, and Taj voice was incredible.

"Use Your Heart" displayed both of their voices.

Oh yeah most definitely. Only the singles from Release Some Tension were good. But they had explained why that album was ass lol.

Their first two albums are classics.

They snub most of the songs from that album except for "Rain" which they claim is one of their biggest favorites.
