CLASSIC ALBUM REWIND: Swv Release Some Tension
Swv's Release some Tension is the only album that i think to this day is filled with guest appearances that didn't sound like a bunch of hoopla! This album is my favorite album from SWV and i still play it today (yesterday as a matter of fact) Release Some Tension is SWV's third album. With guest appearances by E-40, P. Diddy, Missy Elliott, Foxy Brown, Lil' Cease, Lil' Kim, Snoop Doggy Dogg, and Redman. The album released singles like; "Rain", "Someone", "Can We" and a cancelled single "Lose My Cool". A lot of people slept HARD on this album simply because RCA failed to promote it. Some of the hottest producers of out during the sweet music season of 1997 played a part; from Diddy to Timbaland. The album was certified gold for shipping 500,000 copies in the U.S. alone, but it deserved so much more! Swv falls right underneath TLC for best selling girl group of All time at 27million. (Destiny's child is number one at 65million) But honestly i think they were the best girl group of the 90's, hands down. Without album sells.
