SWV‘s VERY welcome return on a remix to Chris Brown’s “Right Here/ Human Nature”-referencing single “She Ain’t You” earlier this year surely sparked all kinds of excited “SWV is Back!!” exclamations, but after years of sporadic live appearance reunions leading to rumors of a new album being in the making leading to 0% in results, we were a bit hesitant in putting too much hope in one of the 90’s top girl groups actually recording another album this time around.
Apparently we should have more faith, because not only have the trio of Coko, Taj and LeLee officially marked their return with a brand new track, the tune just so happens to pay tribute to their platinum hit-coated legacy with some “New Jill Swing” flavor and older material shout-outs (“Love will be right here”) while also sounding like something that could get some rotation on R&B radio today.
With some serious jeep jam bump supplied by producer Lamb, someone who has had some experience making divas sound their best (prior credits include chart-topping joints like Monica’s “Everything To Me”, Keyshia Cole’s “Let It Go” and Jazmine Sullivan’s “Need U Bad”), “Co-Sign” has the Sisters With Voices sounding like they never left the scene, using their still-fabulous harmonies (and lead parts for each member!!) to celebrate the highs of a brand new love that’s so good, it has them giddily re-playing voicemail messages just to hear their boo’s sweet voice all over again.
Feeling like a modern-day sibling to their back-in-the-day classic “Anything”, SWV have us about ready to do throw a house party of the old-school/ Kid N Play kind with this one.
