Terence Trent D’Arby (1993) Do You Love Me Like You Say? 12″

Terence Trent D'Arby (1993) Do You Love Me Like You Say 12"

By 1993, TTD’s chart success had basically disappeared. All the excitement and from his debut album was a distant memory to most of the record buying public. I, on the other hand, was still enjoying the releases from Terence. The ‘Symphony or Damn’ and ‘Vibrator’ albums sounded fine to my ears and I still give them a listen from time to time. “Do You Love Me Like You Say?” was the lead single from ‘Symphony or Damn’ but, it made nary a dent in any of the US Billboard charts. It did get some airplay in the UK as it made it to #14 on the UK pop charts. But, alas, basically ignored in the US.

Toni Braxton (1993) Breathe Again 12"

In the early 90’s, the combination of the elegantly beautiful Toni Braxton and the hitmaking combo of LA & Babyface brought immediate success. Toni’s debut album sold over 10 million copies but, surprisingly, none of the singles reached #1 on any of the major US Billboard charts. Today’s record was the highest charting single on the Hot 100 from that debut album.
