In 1992, a trio of vocally talented women called SWV was introduced to the music world. The RCA debut, It’s About Time, produced a string of top ten R&B hits including: “I’m So Into You,” Right Here, Downtown, Weak, and You’re Always On My Mind. The group’s momentum is stronger than ever. SWV is excited to be touring this summer to promote their new album! SWV is one the world’s top selling female R&B groups of all time, and is striving continuously to be one of the hardest working female groups in the entertainment industry today! SWV secured their own reality series “SWV REUNITED” on WETv in 2013, and it was the #1 highest rated in network history. The series received over 1 million viewers weekly. The show has been renewed for a second season, and will return in the fall of 2014.
