Teen Idols Pt. 2 (90s-10s)

Tevin Campbell:

Years active: 1989-present

Known for: Can We Talk, Round & Round, Tell Me What You Want Me To Do, Alone With You.

Tevin Campbell was a pretty huge deal during his prime. His debut single was a collaboration with THE Quincy Jones, & his career took off after that. His signature song is the Babyface produced “Can We Talk,” but he had other hits like “Tell Me What You Want Me To Do,” & “I’m Ready.”

Mariah Carey:

Years active: 1988-present

Known for: Vision Of Love, Fantasy, We Belong Together, Touch My Body, Honey, My All, Heartbreaker.

One of our REAL living legends. For almost 30 years, the songbird supreme has blessed audiences with her talents. From her five octave range, to her whistle register……..she is one of the best! The only black woman to hold 18 number ones on the pop charts, Mariah is the GOAT, & y’all better recognize!

The princess of R&B was a fitting title for the late and great Aaliyah Haughton. With hits and bops under her belt, her presence is terribly missed in the world of R&B!


Years active: 1991-present

Known for: Burn, My Way, Nice & Slow, Daddy’s Home, Love U, Confessions, Hot Tottie, Slow Jam, Can U Handle It, U Remind Me, U Got It Bad, Throwback.

Usher is one of the Kings of R&B & y’all need to realize that! 🗣🗣

Brandy is the vocal bible. A student of the Whitney Elizabeth Houston school of vocals, Brandy is good for RUNS okay?! She’s been the definition of a consistent artist over the past few decades.

Destiny’s Child is one of the best selling groups of all time. They were destined for greatness, but their catalog is the soundtrack of our childhood, & the lead singer Beyoncé grew up to be our queen of music, & we are ever so gracious.


Years active: 1996-present
