10 Black Movie Soundtracks We Love

Waiting to Exhale

Classic! To call the soundtrack for Waiting to Exhale anything less would be a complete slap in the face. Everybody that was anybody around the time of the Waiting to Exhale’s release (1995), and it helped because the soundtrack went a whopping seven times platinum in the U.S. You can also thank the uber-talented Babyface for that, since he is credited as the writer of EVERY song on the soundtrack. Let’s see, we all know and love “Exhale (Shoop Shoop),” Toni Braxton’s “Let it Flow,” Brandy’s “Sittin’ Up in My Room,” and Mary J. Blige’s “Not Gon’ Cry,” all released as singles. But the album has less popular tracks that still had everyone grooving, and possibly doing a ‘lil somethin’ somethin’ else (*wink wink*). Please check out the Hot “This Is How it Works” by TLC, “Kissing You” by Faith Evan, and “It Hurts Like Hell” by the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. This CD is still my jam to this day…
