Bet You Didn’t Know: Secrets Behind the Making of “Waiting to Exhale”

The Soundtrack

Forest Whitaker decided to work with Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds before shooting for the film had even begun. They talked about the direction they wanted to go because they wanted the soundtrack to make sense to the film. So Babyface wrote the music to actual scenes in the film. He wrote all the songs first and then decided which artists were going to perform them. He later decided, with input from Whitney, that all of the artists would be and should be women, to keep up with the theme of the movie.
