SWV, comprised of singers Coko, Lelee and Taj, first showcased their R&B skills 20 years ago in 1992, when they released their debut album, It's About Time. The trio, known for their catchy choruses on lauded tracks like "Weak," "I'm So Into You" and "Right Here," sit in the upper echelons of esteemed female powerhouses.
They've built a solid reputation marked by creating music that resonates with listeners.

"If you enjoyed the old music, you're really going to enjoy the new music," Taj tells The BoomBox. "You've grown up with us so you're right here with us. The music is mature, it's entertaining, beautiful, emotional."
Currently hitting major markets promoting their LP, Sisters With Voices spent an afternoon dropping some pretty hilarious sentiments during a conversation in New York City. Comedy may not be their specialty, but they could easily cause a room to erupt in laughter at amateur hour. Read on as the ladies drop gems about their trouble "figuring out" Nicki Minaj, the R&B beef they were once involved in, emotional I Missed Us studio sessions and the story behind Coko's infamously long fingernails.
