The 90s R&B Era put out some great music during that time. SWV, Silk, Shai, Jodeci, HTown, 112 and Jagged Edge are just a few that was dropping heat all the time. Throughout the years, I’ve appreciated it even more because it seems like mainstream R&B is nonexistent outside a couple of acts. Today marks the 25th anniversary of H-Town dropping their classic debut album, Fever for Da Flavor. The first single, Knockin’ Da Boots dropped about a month before the album came out and it blew up. Despite being huge hip hop fans during that time, this track was played a lot during our Spring Break Party. Knockin’ Da Boots quickly became the #1 song in the country. About five weeks later, they released Fever for Da Flavor and it was well-received. It was surprising the album was great because they were signed to Luke and you know him.
For me, this album is full of hits and I don’t think Knockin’ Da Boots was the best song. Keepin’ My Composure. This song is on all my Spotify playlists and 25 years later this is one of my favorite R&B tracks. Baby I Wanna, Fever for da Flavor, Treat U Right and Lick U Up, the second single are my favorite tracks. HTown blew up after this incredibly successful album and they were also a part of the classic Above the Rim Soundtrack. Part Time Lover was featured on one of my all-time favorite soundtracks. After an incredible year, HTown was one of the hottest acts in the country. During that time, they co-headlined the Coca-Cola Tour with SWV, Silk and Shai. If you haven’t checked out the album before, stream it below on Spotify.
