Babyface is a GOAT! I could honestly drop the mic here and end the post but I won’t do that. This past Sunday he reminded us just how talented he is when he did the 25-year celebration of ‘Waiting to Exhale’ on Instagram.
He said it best, the book, the screenplay, and movie changed his life and the life of so many women. For the first time they didn’t feel like they were alone in this struggle and they could see themselves on the screen on the pages of the book. Babyface didn’t have to bless us with this live, but I’m so happy he did! He told us so many stories about filming the movie, reminded us that Forest THEE Whittaker was the brilliant director behind it, and the eye behind so many great scenes we still love to this day. He shared some stories about how Whitney’s hesitation on being on the soundtrack and how that was curated. Then the music came. That album is truly a classic. So many great vocalists contributed to it and Babyface put his writer/producer sauce on it, and it remains a piece of work that you can put on and listen to top to bottom to this day. In fact, that’s why I’m sharing it with y’all today.
Do yourselves a favor and put this album on while you work or chill out today and thank me later!
