5. It’s No Crime- Babyface, fresh off from his success with his band The Deele, came on the scene solo and hit us with that uptempo beat and his voice, we fell in love. And the fact that he called BabyFace helped alot also.
4. Two Occasions- The video that started it all, the black suits, the dance moves and L.A. Reid playing the drums. The Deele had a couple of hits but we all know BabyFace was a star when he stepped out in the video to do his verses.
3. Whip Appeal- We knew Babyface was cute but he showed us his sex appeal with this throwback. The second single off of his first album ‘Tender Lover.’
2. Give You My Heart featuring Toni Braxton- After start of LaFace records, Babyface and his producing producer L.A. Reid looked for the next big act after the signing of Jermaine Jackson. And the duo found Toni Braxton after deciding to pass on her and her sisters as a group. Her first single was duet with the crooner for the Blockbuster film, Boomerang.
1. Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)- Babyface produced the entire Waiting To Exhale soundtrack solo after him and L.A. Reid parted ways. The soundtrack had countless singles and charted on the Billboard charts but one particular stood out to everyone. The late Whitney Houston so softly sung out lyrics that all related to and gave BabyFace another #1 single.
