Day 3 – Sheena Easton – The Lover In Me
Whilst Jam & Lewis were doing their thing, LA & Babyface were busy writing and producing up-tempo hits of their own for Paula Abdul, Karyn White, The Whispers, Pebbles and many others. Just as Jam & Lewis used a certain type of synth and beat to create their sound, LA & Babyface started using these very catchy orchestral samples to create theirs. In November 1988, Sheena Easton released her 9th album titled ‘The Lover In Me’ on MCA records, which featured many LA & Babyface tracks. In total the album reached number 44 on the US chart, was certified Gold by RIAA, and peaked at number 30 on the UK charts. The title track became a major hit by itself, reaching number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 5 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Tracks chart. It reached number 15 in the UK. Once again, I hadn’t seen this video until recently but it’s so 80’s that it’s so ace! I kinda want to step into that club tonight! Anyway, this album is another must-buy as it features so many great tracks, including Days Like This; No Deposit, No Return; and Fire And Rain.
As Freaky Dee used to say – this one is ”stone cold slammin”’!
