Was SWV’s Split Due To Financial Disputes? This Is What Happened


Thinking back to the 80’s into the 90’s, there were several music groups who were astoundingly doing very well by releasing satisfying tunes, that coexisted with devotees. Among them was the vocal trio SWV.

In the 90s the New York based trio SWV were known as much for their hit tunes “Weak” Right Here (Human Nature)”, “Use Your Heart” and “Rain,” as they were for their hard-celebrating ways.

Tragically, the trio got disbanded en route. Fans were baffled, music intellectuals discussed about them but they actually didn’t meet up.

Formed in 1988 as a gospel group, SWV was one of the best R&B groups of the 1990s. Members were Cheryl Gamble, Tamara Johnson and Leanne Lyons.

Numerous people thought the three ladies are real sisters, considering the name of the group – Sisters With Voice (SWV). In actual fact, they are friends who sang in chapel as kids, which is the place where they figured out how to orchestrate.

Signed on to RCA Records, Bertelsmann Music Group, Entertainment One Music and SWV/Record label, the group was doing incredibly well until that ‘blow’ came.

It was rumoured that financial disputes split the group up right off the bat in the following decade in the wake of forming the group. They needed to head out in a different direction until 2012, when they considered fairly reuniting.

Bits of gossip were going round that the group was currently active since they may have considered it very well prior to reuniting. They last released an Album “I Missed Us” just as the unscripted TV drama “SWV Reunited”.

They also released the Album “Still” in 2016 and keep on touring with every one of the three unique group members Coko, Taj, and Lelee.

The group did incredible collaborations with other top acts like the late King of Pop Music, Michael Jackson and others. They have tunes like Weak, It’s About Time, Right Here, It’s About Time, I’m So Into You and numerous others.

Albums: It’s About Time, Release Some Tension, New Beginning, Still, I Missed Us, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
