Remember these sultry slow jams?
Back in the day, Bad Boy churned out the hits like clockwork and a lot of 90s baby-making went down courtesy of the back-to-back R&B jams Puff Daddy and the family were spinning out during the label’s heyday. Back then artists like 112 and Carl Thomas kept it hot like no one else on the charts could.
These were the absolute best slow jams to come out of the “can’t stop, won’t stop” era and we know you have some unforgettable memories to prove it. (Wink!)
112 ft. Lil Zane “Anywhere”
112’s “Anywhere” says it all. When you’re ready to get it hot and steamy, it can definitely happen anywhere!
Carl Thomas “Summer Rain”
In the early 2000s, Carl Thomas found R&B gold with a “Summer Rain.” The melody and vocals were steamy, sensual and so unforgettable. Raise your hand if this song brings back Destiny’s Child level emotions.
