It’s time for the latest in our series of examining the Top 10 Best Songs by an artist, and this time we dig into the discography of 112. Now is a good time to look at the best songs by one of the best r&b groups in the 90’s, especially since group member Slim has just released his sophomore album “Refueled”.
112 emerged in the mid 90’s as a product of Puff Daddy’s Bad Boy Records and went on to record five albums until disbanding over a decade later. The group continues to tour, however they haven’t released new music since their final album “Pleasure & Pain”. As discussed in our recent podcast, we debated whether 112’s first three albums (“112”, “Room112”, and “Part III”) were of better quality than the first three albums of any of their contemporaries.
Without further ado, here is the list of what we consider to be The Top 10 Best 112 Songs:
10) Love Me (featuring Ma$e)The first single released from the group’s sophomore album “Room112”, it featured Bad Boy labelmate Ma$e.
9) NowhereAn overlooked gem from the group’s final album, “Nowhere” featured production from Bryan-Michael Cox and Jermaine Dupri.
8) Anywhere (featuring Lil’ Zane)“Anywhere” became a big hit for 112 after they released it as the second single from the “Room112” album.
7) Smile“Smile” is an overlooked album cut produced by Tim & Bob on 112’s third album “Part III”.
6) I Will Be ThereThere are so many great songs on 112’s self titled debut album, but “I Will Be There”is one of the best.
5) Peaches & CreamThe group found crossover success with the massive hit “Peaches & Cream” which has become their biggest hit to date.
4) Only You (featuring The Notorious B.I.G.“Only You” was the first single released by 112, and the Bad Boy remix of the song featuring The Notorious B.I.G. is a real standout.
3) Love You Like I DidGoing to the “Room112” album once again, “Love You Like I Did” was the best that album had to offer.
2) It’s Over NowThe first single released on the “Part III” album and 112’s first number one single.
1) CupidA timeless r&b ballad and one of the best of the 90’s, not much more to add.
