Tonight Silk (Elektra, 1999)

Tonight was R&B group Silk’s third studio album. In 1992, the boys had a huge hit on their hands with their #1 single, Freak Me off their debut album, Lose Yourself. Though their sophomore failed to contribute to their success, Tonight would change that. In fact, for Tonight, the boys wanted more creative control. For good reason: The band had to seek new management after dealing with financial and legal issues. On Tonight, their new manager was Sonja Norwood, singer/actress Brandy’s mom. Elektra Records then-president Sylvia Rhone, greenlit a third Silk album and let the boys take their time to find the right songs and produce an album they were happy with.

Tonight included If You, their biggest hit off the album. It peaked at #13 on the Pop chart. The other single was Meeting in My Bedroom, Let’s Make Love and Tonight. Tonight (the album) was certified Platinum (as had Lose Control been).
