Coko, Taj and LeLee gave us the soundtrack to the 1990s with their hits, let's remember together, shall we?

While there aren’t many popular girl groups today, back in the 1990’s there were plenty and SWV was the cream of the crop. Touting members Tamara “Taj” Johnson-George, Cheryl “Coko” Clemons and Leanne “LeLee” Lyons, the New York City threesome gave us some of R&B’s most memorable hits like “Weak,” “Right Here” and “You’re The One.”

In April 2012, the ladies released their fifth album “I Missed Us,” and since we were missing them, too, here’s a look back at the trio’s history. Make sure you get your tickets to see the ladies at the 2012 ESSENCE Music Festival!
