Throwback Thursday: Jodeci – “Forever My Lady” (1992 Soul Train Awards)


The 1990’s birthed several phenomenal R&B groups, but none quite like Jodeci. It was an era dominated by New Jack Swing where Jodeci married R&B, Soul and Hip Hop to create a sound that is classic and timeless even today. With BET/Centric’s recent announcement of a Jodeci reunion performance at this year’s Soul Train Awards, it was only right we throw it back to their 1992 Soul Train Awards performance.

“Forever My Lady” was the second single off the iconic group’s triple platinum debut album of the same name. It was also the first of five number one R&B hits for the group, spending two weeks at number one on the Billboard R&B chart and also peaking at No. 25 on the Hot 100. The single was produced by group member DeVante Swing and singer/producer Al B. Sure!. Jodeci was revered for their gritty soul, gospel roots, silky vocals, vocal arrangements, production, and timeless jams.

Emerging as the antithesis of iconic R&B group Boyz II Men, Jodeci redefined contemporary R&B as we knew it. They traversed the R&B landscape. Enjoy the video above!
