Remember the Time: Sisters ’90s R&B, Pop and Hip-Hop Playlist

Oh snap! We were rocking box braids, baggy jeans — and this list of hits.

There’s something about Top 40 hits from the ’90s that instantly makes us smile like Shanice. Whether it’s hip-hop soul jams like Mary J.’s “Real Love” and SWV’s “I’m So Into You;” smooth, mid-tempo grooves like Toni Braxton’s “You’re Makin’ Me High” and Jodeci’s “Come & Talk to Me;” girl-power anthems like Whitney Houston’s “I’m Every Woman;” club thumpers like Ginuwine’s “Pony” and CeCe Peniston’s “Finally” or car ride karaoke hits like Dee-Lite’s “Groove Is in the Heart” and Montell Jordan’s “This is How We Do It,” the ’90s was a kinder, gentler era when no one would call the fashion police if you rocked Hammer pants, oversized plaid tops, baggy overalls and combat boots. So let’s remember that time with this nostalgic playlist featuring 28 of our fly faves. Crank it up and do the Running Man around your apartment, get movin’ on the treadmill or invite your girls over for a house party!
