Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for 90s RnB fans July 4 2013
By Upjit
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bought this music CD for my wife. Its been almost 18 years since the soundtrack to the movie with the same name was released and the music this CD contains crushes many modern songs. Baby Face and Whitney Houston is a musical duo that cannot be matched in this generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musique de film pour collectionneur March 29 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
La version française de ce film avec Whitney Houston, "Où sont les hommes?" est un classique dans le genre film musical.
Plusieurs chanteuses de couleur et des interprétations inoubliables de chansons populaires et d'autres moins connues.
Cette bande sonore originale "Waiting to Exhale" est un incontournable et ce CD deviendra un disque de collection.
À acheter.

4.0 out of 5 stars a must-have of the 90's May 31 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
your 90's collection of r&b music is incomplete without this compilation of r&b/soul singles from artists of that time like TLC, Toni Braxton, Mary J Blige, Brandy and musical legends like Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin and Patti Labelle. It would have been even better if female artists like Janet Jackson, Monica, Aaliyah, Mariah Carey and En Vogue were featured too, but still a must have. Standout tracks are Exhale, Sittin Up In My Room, This Is How It Works, Not Gon' Cry, Count On Me

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best April 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i love babyface. he is much better than david foster but still i was skeptikal listening to an album full of babyface songs, as it would get kinda boring...and it did. i liked whitneys hit "exhale", Toni braxton's "let it flow" and brandy's "Sittin up in my room" but that's all i pretty much liked. I wasn't feeling TLC (tho i usually do) on "This is how it works." I love all the singers on this soundtrack and i thought with babyface it would be a dream come true but it ended up being a nightmare. Sorry but a WHOLE ALBUM with babyface? I dont think so.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE GOOD SOUNDTRACK March 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack had it all, DIVAS, VOICES, SONGS, one of the greatest soundtracks ever produced, stand out cut is Mary J. Blige "Not Gon Cry" wow! melancolic and soultouching!, Brandy's "Sittin' Up In My Room" pop of mid-90's at their best, great to stomp your feet at, "Exhale" simple and beautiful..., great album not any fille rin this!, the only thang missing is En Vogue, Paula Abdul, Tamia and Monica....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Soundtrack...Five Reasons Feb. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.
