I felt really old watching Beyonce’s appearance at Glastonbury last weekend (on TV, I don’t do camping!) She did a Destiny’s Child medley and I got really excited telling my mum they were some of my favourites as a teen – then I realised they started out in 1998 – over ten years ago! You know you’re grown up when you remember music from your teenage years and a decade has passed. It’s even weirder to think Beyonce is just a year older than me. We’ve certainly took very different paths
As she was then:
I’ll always have a soft spot for music I enjoyed when I was younger. Maybe it’s that music really spoke to me as I was going through issues and growing up and music was just part of that whole experience. As a teen, I was really into R ‘n’ B and was a big DC fan. I don’t really listen to new R ‘n’ B artists now but watching the concert has made me want to dig out my old tunes and add to my iPod.
Here are the R ‘n’ B songs from the 90′s that stand out for me:
Destiny’s Child – Bills bills bills
TLC – No scrubs
Brandy & Monica – The boy is mine
Mariah Carey – Honey
Jennifer Lopez – My love don’t cost a thing
Chante Moore – Straight up
Mya – The case of the ex
Toni Braxton – He wasn’t man enough
What other R ‘n’ B classics did you love?
