Whitney shows love for S, the double, the U, the V!

If you’ve caught even a few moments of Being Bobby Brown, then you probably know the show’s at its most weirdly delectable whenever Whitney Houston breaks into spontaneous song. Whether she’s rapping about trying on glasses in a hotel drug store or swaying her shoulders and chanting ”He-ey! He-ey!” with an effeminate bearded man at the Von Dutch shop, the woman remains a mesmerizing force.

Last night’s episode, however, provided the series’ No. 1 hit: Whitney reviving the memory of early-90s R&B stars SWV. When Bobby started singing his new single to Whitney at a poolside lounge, his wife snapped out of her fog (well, for a second anyway) and informed him he’d lifted the melody from SWV’s ”Right Here,” a song so fabulous I can’t believe I’ve been forgetting to miss it for the last decade.

So all you fans of S, the double, the U, the V (yes, Whitney, you too), sing along with me now:

Never to be mistaken/Long as it’s love we’re making/There’s gonna be some rain/Gonna beat the pain/But as long as I know/Boy, time will show/Our love will grow/And I know love will be right here/Be right here/Right here/Be right here/No fears/Have no fear/No tears/Love is here.

Is it time for an SWV reunion tour? Or maybe a double-bill with Whitney herself? Holla back!

    Oh yeah, and I thought Bobby’s track sounded much more like Janet Jackson’s “Got ‘Til It’s Gone.” Not that I didn’t enjoy Whit’s “Deedle deedle” version of “Right Here,” but still…

    SWV show us love by dropping dat new album already, ya’ll have alot of diehard fans just dying to hear seome new material so come on – ITS ABOUT TIME 4 A NEW BEGINNING!

    I have alot of respect for SWV but I must say, alot more admiration for Lelee and Taj for being so strong over the years. Its takes alot of courage to carry on when alot of negativity is around u (somebodys always got somethin to say). Noone ever thought about Lelee and the stress of being a teenage mother, touring for lengthy periods and not seeing her kids. Everyone went on about how Coko had a baby just before they dropped their New Beggining album but noone ever mentioned Lelee and the loss of her mother to cancer round the same time. So with their new album on the rise, I look forward to hearing new SWV material but more importantly – the distinctive voices of Lelee and Taj.
