Day 4 – Karyn White – Secret Rendezvous
So, sticking with the LA & Babyface production sound of 1988 we have the debut solo album by Karyn White. Karyn was already semi-known because of her work with Jeff Lorber on his 1986 album ”Private Passion”. In fact, you can see Karyn on Facts Of Love and Back In Love. These are both great tracks in their own right. But in teaming up with LA & Babyface, her self-titled debut album went Platinum, and contained the hit singles “The Way You Love Me,” “Secret Rendezvous,” “Superwoman” and “Love Saw It”. Except for Secret Rendezvous, all the tracks hit the top spot on the US R n’ B chart. This album is still one of my faves with many great tracks. It’s also interesting that for her follow-up album ”Ritual Of Love” in 1991 that she chose to link up with Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis. This in turn produced the hit single Romantic.
Anyway, to those immortal lyrics…….happiness is when I think of you and when we get together and rendez-vous! SLAMIN’! Check those dance moves!
