So who is SWV?
SWV (Sisters with Voices) was founded in 1992 in New York by three best friends, Cheryl "Coko" Clemons, Tamara "Taj" George and Leanne "Lelee" Lyons. SWV's debut album, It's About Time, was a smash hit selling over 13 million copies worldwide and spawning three Billboard chart topping singles, I'm So Into You, Weak and Right Here.
In 1993, SWV's success led to 11 Billboard Music Award nominations, four American Music Awards nominations and a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. Following the success of their first album,SWV returned in 1996 with another platinum album, New Beginning, featuring their number one hit You're the One. In 1997,SWV dropped their third album, Release Some Tension, which was certified gold but failed to reach the heights of their first two records.
Since 2005, SWV has reunited from time-to-time for special performances, and in 2011the group finally recorded its fourth studio album, I Missed Us, which earned them a 2013 Grammy nomination for Best Traditional R&B Performance. This achievement has inspired them to head back on the road for a make-or-break comeback tour, which was chronicled in the hit WE tv docu-series “SWV Reunited.”
