Updated: Aug 21
Karyn White let everyone know that she was not your superwoman while being the superwoman in R&B music. She is a talented singer and songwriter that placed her mark on music history.
White’s career started when she released her debut album Karyn White in 1988 after signing with Warner Bros Records. L.A. Reid and Babyface produced the album and it achieved platinum status in the U.S. Hot 100 hits. This album produced many of her classic hits including “The Way You Love Me”, “Superwoman”, and “Love Saw It”. “Love Saw It” made it to the number one spot on the R&B charts as it was a duet with Babyface. White was nominated for several awards for being an outstanding female vocalist and coming out the gate with top hits. White’s rise was fast and well deserved.
“Superwoman” is the biggest hit of White’s career. This song hit international airwaves and sold over a million copies. The song made it to Billboard R&B Song of the Year in 1989. White’s take off definitely made her a superwoman, indeed. The following years White released more albums with chart topping hits. She worked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis on her second album Ritual of Love in 1991. “Romantic” hit number one among a few others from this album. White reached her peak in 95 after her final hit “Can I Stay With You”, which hit R&B Top 10.
White gave us her all when she first came out and she is far from over.
