R&B group SWV may be known for ’90s songs like “Weak” and “I’m So Into You” but the trio is taking it back even more to recite lyrics from Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.”
As a part of a Black History Month Retold series, the three women poetically remix the 1965 song word-for-word in the video presented by The Urban Daily. The captivating track has remained a favorite for music fans for over 50 years — it has been featured in countless films and commercials and was also sampled in “New Day” from Jay Z and Kanye West’s collaborative album, Watch the Throne.
And SWV has re-emerged as an acclaimed act. The singing group dropped their fifth studio album, Still, before tearing down the house with Blackstreet, Faith Evans, Jodeci, Total and more at the Barclays Center last weekend. And so far, fans are loving the return.
“The new @THEREALSWV album is everything u could’ve wishes for! #Slayed, read one tweet. “I definitely get my life to the new @THEREALSWV @Only1Coko serving grown and sexy vocals, yasssssssss,” read another.
In an interview with rolling out, Tamara “Taj” George spoke on their latest album as well.
“Still sums up everything about SWV. After all of the ups, downs, break ups, years, babies, boyfriends, illnesses, you name it, we’re still here making great music,” she explained.
