Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

Waiting to Exhale is the exception that proves the rule about mish-mash 1990s soundtrack albums. Even though it features 22 different female voices, the album boasts a rare continuity because Babyface wrote or co-wrote 15 of the songs and produced all 16. Moreover, the gifted R&B artist used every song to explore the film's theme of women trying to balance self-respect and romantic desire. Not only has Babyface (née Kenny Edmonds) created a fascinating song suite, he has produced one of the best middle-of-the-road-pop, adult-contemporary albums of the decade. Mary J. Blige stakes out a claim as the new diva on the block with an astonishing performance on "Not Gon' Cry". Babyface's music and lyrics suggest a woman barely holding back a swelling flood of anger and heartache, and Blige's brilliant vocal captures both the agitation and the restraint. --Geoffrey Himes

Waiting To Exhale is such a great soundtrack that men aren't afraid to admit that they have it in their collection. here are five reasons why this soundtrack is a definite must have.
1. Babyface wrote and produced the entire album, and from his history that instantly makes it worth listening to.
2. Mary J. Blige, SWV, Brandy, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston, Cece Winans, TLC, Toni Braxton, Aretha Franklin, Faith Evans all sing on this album. Can You possibly go wrong?
3. Brandy - Sittin Up In My Room is my favorite midtempo track of all time
4. The soundtrack stands alone. In fact I have never seen the movie but own the soundtrack. Usually you buy the soundtrack and then see the movie or vice versa...not so with this one. The songs perfectly tell the story of the movie judging from the reviews of the movie. Every song has a definite theme and feel.
5. The soundtrack is soothing and relaxing but not sleep inducing. Some cd's have a laid back feel but sometimes make you sleepy...that's not evident here though.
Waiting To Exhale - One of the Great Soundtracks of the 90's, right up there with Above The Rim and Murder Was The Case. An Essential album.

Even if you hated the movie (which I know a lot of people that did), you cannot deny the musical force behind the music. The "diva" herself, Ms. Whitney starts it off on the title track, called "Exhale"...a beautiful song that not only goes perfectly with the movie, but allows Ms Houston to showcase her stunning vocals. She also returns on "Why Does It Hurt So Bad?" and on a duet with gospel-singer, CeCe Winans on the friendship-inspired, feel-good song, "Count On Me." Toni Braxton shows up to breathe life into "Let It Flow". Aretha thought she might embarrass herself on "It Hurts Like Hell". {Face it folks, her voice ain't what it used to be anymore.} Brandy brings us a funky song, "Sitting Up In My Room,". TLC's "This Is How It Works" was better left off this soundtrack. Mary J Blige told us that she was "Not Gon' Cry" and reminded us that she should've "left your ass a thousand times..." Chaka Khan does a cover of "My Funny Valentine," complete with lush, full vocals. {This song reminds me of a smoky, dimly lit lounge with just a baby grand piano and her belting out this tune. It just has that type of feel to it.} "And I Gave My Love To You.." is okay. I have never heard of this artist before, so forgive me. SWV re-unites (temporarily) to sing this one. Again, folks, this one should have been left off the album. "Wey U" by Chante Moore is very nice. Her vocals are very pleasing to the ear. "My Love, Sweet Love," by Patti "Lady Marmalade" LaBelle is soooo pretty! I think of this as more a wedding song than anything else. Regardless, this song is one reason I purchased the soundtrack to begin with."Kissing You" by Faith, "Love Will Be Waiting At Home" by For Real, and "How Can You Call Her Baby?" by Shanna are some kind of nice, too. Not too much, but just enough.Read more ›

You've waited so long to be in a relationship with this man for about 3 years. When you first kiss him, the first thought that appears in your mind is, "I can't believe I'm KISSING YOU." In the beginning of the relationship, everything seems perfect. So finally you get used to being around him and get the hang of "the beginning relationship thing" and say to yourself, "so, THIS IS HOW IT WORKS. All I have to do know is sit back and, LET IT FLOW." Then you start getting goo, goo, ga, ga, over the man. You began writing him little love notes of poetry saying, " MY LOVE, SWEET LOVE, I bless the day we met and the way we hold each others hand. I loved the WAY U looked at me, I spent forever in your eyes that night and it was then that I GAVE MY LOVE TO YOU. Spend the night with me and when you get here you'll soon find out that LOVE WILL BE WAITING AT HOME where we can hold each other real tight and make passionate love ALL NIGHT LONG." Then in the middle of the relationship things begin taking its toll. You and your "pudding pie" are watching Midnight Love cuddled together in front of a cozy fire and all of a sudden, the phone rings. All you hear is "Uhuh, okay, yeah, alright baby, bye." You're like, "Who in the h.. was that?" He say's, "Oh that was just my ex, now lets cuddle." Then you say, " What, HOW COULD YOU CALL HER BABY?" He says, "Man dawg, I didn't say baby, I said maybe." You thinkin', "Yeah right." Anyway, you start getting strange phone calls from his ex. Uhh ohh, another case of the ex. She cusses you out everytime you pick up the phone, she tells you she and yo man been sleeping together and sometimes she just calls and hangs up whenever you answer the phone.Read more ›

How can I be the DIVA lover that I am and not give it up to this soundtrack? I mean, everyone is on this cd! As a matter of fact, I remember the first time I saw it in the music store (before the movie came out). I screamed really loud, then yelled, "Thank You, Jesus!" and proceeded to the checkout line..."...Exhale "-sdtrk. in my hand. The lineup of artists alone... Powerhouse!
One has to give it up to Babyface(song writing "King")for producing such an ear pleasing suite of music which actually tied right into the movie(not something you really see nowadays). So, thank you, Babyface...
AND THANK YOU DIVAS!!!!!!!! The vocals are like butter!
"Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)"- Whitney, this little diddy will go down in history as being my favorite song of all time! Thanks for the almost 20 minute version at your concert in Washington, D.C.
"Why Does It Hurt So Bad"- I don't know, but Whitney put so much emotion in this song even I felt the pain!! It "Hurt SO GOOD!"
"Let It Flow"- A song only Toni could do!
"It Hurts Like Hell"- Tell 'em 'bout it Aretha!
"Sittin Up In My Room"- I could go on all day about this song! All I have to say is it came out my senior year of high school and I used to imagine she was talking about me!!! Truly one of Brandy's best. She is an awesome talent with a wonderful attitude to boot!!
"This Is How It Works"- TLC is just funky! Love Them!
"Not Gon' Cry"- Mary was doin' some thangs with this one! Definitely made her a major player on the music scene!
"My Funny Valentine"- Give it to 'em Chaka! Don't hurt nobody!!
"And I Gave My Heart to You"- One of the best songs on the cd.
