Mark_Morrison_Return_Of_the_Mack_Album_Cover One-hit wonders are everyone’s favorite obsession until their inevitable fall from grace. At one point, they were pop culture royalty and then everything crumbled. Now they’re either Twitter punchlines, wedding singers or broke ex-celebs taking your food order. Cold world. Here are the ten most infamous, beloved or hated R&B one-hit wonders ever. Take a look.
album-return-of-the-mack Mark Morrison “Return of the Mack” The gift: Timeless R&B jam with classic adlibs and a legendary hook. The curse: Timeless R&B jam that’s impossible to top.
tumblr_mcmtejqKu41qj4xgo_1351475911_cover Sunshine Anderson “Heard It All Before” Nobody cares about Sunshine Anderson anymore, but when we did, she was hot for 9 weeks. Yea, she worked on new music between JCPenney’s shifts but her follow-up flopped.
1391327769-1 Adina Howard “Freak Like Me” The freaknasty R&B vixen was actually very talented but never found an audience for her filthy brand of red lipstick and leather-Soul.
front Koffee Brown “After Party” “What happened to that group with the dude and chick who had that one song After Party? I liked them” – everyone since 2000.
Front2 Az Yet “Last Night” Most people still haven’t seen a sun, moon, mountain, river or Heaven during lovemaking sessions but somehow the once popular R&B quartet did (and famously crooned about it).
mokenstef_hm MoKenStef “He’s Mine” Tied with Xscape as the roughest looking female R&B group ever, the hoodrat trio looked like Onyx with wigs on but “He’s Mine” jammed.
jimmy_cozier_saig Jimmy Cozier “She’s All I Got” He randomly fell from the sky and gave the world exactly ONE jam then bounced from R&B forever.
Blu Cantrell - Hit Em Up Style (Ooops!) (12 inch) Blu Cantrell “Hit Em Up Style (Oops!)” Blu had a fresh jazzy sound that popped on the radio but she knew and we knew that “Hit Em Up Style” was too unique to ever top.
glenn_lewis_dont_you_forget_it Glenn Lewis “Don’t You Forget It” The promising R&B crooner fell off Earth after this gem and is still “missing” to this day.
Rockwell-Somebodys-Watchin-487211 Rockwell “Somebody's Watching Me” Without the classic Michael Jackson hook, Rockwell doesn’t exist.
