SWV isn’t letting the recent cancellation of their WeTV reality series get in the way of releasing new music. The trio just unveiled their latest single, MCE (Man Crush Everyday), via Essence.com, as well as the official release date for their upcoming album, Still.
The trio had originally planned to debut new music via SWV: Reunited. Unfortunately, after being left in limbo for several months, the girls learned their show was cancelled and would not be returning for a third season. “Yes, we were disappointed,” Coko told Billboard. “But SWV was a group before the show and we will remain a group after the show. We made the show, it did not make us.”
After two seasons, WeTV has decided to pull the plug on SWV Reunited. The group’s official Facebook page broke the news to fans, as well as the circumstances surrounding the unexpected cancellation.
SWV has just unveiled the cover art to their upcoming fifth solo album, Still.
Lensed by longtime collaborator Derek Blanks, the trio is featured huddled close together, and barely looking a day older than they did when they released their first album almost twenty-three years ago.
Lead singer, Cheryl “Coko” Clemons, calls Still a “return to classic R&B,” and says the album’s lead single “Ain’t No Man” is a tribute to black men and a departure from today’s typical “ain’t no good men” rhetoric.
SWV is back with the visual for their latest single Ain’t No Man. The track is the first to be released from their upcoming fifth solo album Still, due out November 13.
The video was helmed by celebrity photographer Derek Blanks, who also directed the group’s previous effort, 2012’s Co-Sign.
SWV is back with a new single titled Ain’t No Man.
The track is the first to be released from their upcoming fifth solo album, tentatively slated for release on October 30.
After an almost 15-year hiatus, members Cheryl ‘Coko’ Clemons, Tamara ‘Taj’ Johnson-George and Leanne ‘Lelee’ Lyons reunited back in 2012 for a new album I Miss Us and a WeTV reality series SWV Reunited followed in 2014.
