The ’90s’ favorite harmony-laden R&B quartet Jodeci recently dropped The Past, The Present, The Future, their first album in 20 years. To commemorate the occasion, we’re taking a look back at all the group’s chart success. From the kings of new jack swing’s triple-platinum debut Forever My Lady to the smooth grooves of The Show, The After-Party, The Hotel, the voices of K-Ci, Jo-Jo, DeVante, and Mr. Dalvin were the soundtrack to some of the 90s most…intimate moments.
Jodeci’s 10 Biggest Billboard Hits are based on actual performance on the weekly Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, through the chart dated April 18, 2015. Songs are ranked by peak position on the chart, with ties broken by weeks at peak, then if necessary, weeks in the top 10 and weeks on chart.
10. “I’m Still Waiting” (1991)
Cementing their place as the crooners to beat, the fifth single off Jodeci’s debut spent 22 weeks on the chart, and eventually rose to No. 10 — but the group already knew it was something special. Written while they were still living in North Carolina, the song was one of two they performed at their Uptown Records audition in 1989.
9. “Love U 4 Life” (1995)
By the group’s third studio album, they were a genuine Top 40 threat, with millions of records sold and a devoted audience of R&B aficionados and slow dancers nationwide. “Love” peaked at No. 31 on the Hot 100 and No. 8 on R&B/Hip-Hop, spending 25 weeks on the chart.
8. “Get On Up” (1995)
The group’s final single prior to their long hiatus, the funky “Get On Up” debuted at No. 13 and stuck around for 27 weeks, peaking at No. 4. Jodeci was even invited to perform the song on an episode of the UPN’s Moesha.
7. “Freek’n You” (1995)
One of Jodeci’s most memorable songs, the provocative “Freek’n You” peaked at No. 3 during the summer of 1995. At six and a half minutes the full-length version of the seductive ballad is practically an epic — with the radio edit, however, the song hit No. 14 on the Hot 100.
6. “Feenin'” (1993)
A potent addiction metaphor and an irresistible hook, as well as a very vivid video courtesy of Hype Williams, brought the song to No. 2 on R&B/Hip-Hop, and No. 25 on the Hot 100.
