Lin made a comment recently about a group from the 90’s that should not have broken up. Which inspired me to devote this Flashback Friday post to that subject of 90’s groups that broke up way too soon.
Here are two groups/ duos from the 90’s that seemed like the best was yet to come from them when they broke up.
Brownstone – The three original members of Brownstone were Monica “Mimi” Doby, Charmayne “Maxee” Maxwell and Nichole “Nicci” Gilbert.The group released one album together in 1995 called, ” From the Bottom Up“. From that album came two hits, “If You Love Me” and “Grapevyne”
After touring to promote that album group member Monica “Mimi” Doby left the group. She first said that is was because of health reasons but later admitted that it was because of friction within the group.
After that Brownstone added another member and then another and tried a comeback in 1997 which was unsuccessful.
Zhané – A great duo from the 90’s that imploded way too soon was Zhané. The duo consisted of Jean Norris and Renee Neufvill. They released their debut album, “Pronounced Jah-Nay” in 1994. The album went platinum spawning three hits, “Hey Mr. DJ” and “Sending My Love” and “Groove Thang“.
The duo released their second and final album, “Saturday Night“, in 1997. That album failed to even reach Gold status. After the release of that album Neufvill and Norris broke up.
Do you agree with my choices?
What group or groups from the 90’s do you think broke up too soon?
