IT FEELS GOOD
Featuring Mint Condition and Tony! Toni! Toné!
Mint Condition generated some buzz, but it wasn’t until Washington D.C.’s WHUR-FM (Howard University’s famed college radio station) broke the follow-up ballad, 1991’s “Breakin’ My Heart (Pretty Brown Eyes)” that the band experienced their first runaway smash. “Breakin'” peaked at number three on Billboard’s R&B chart and number six in Pop’s top ten, remaining on the charts for 34 weeks. After that, two other stellar albums—From the Mint Factory and Definition of a Band— and a chain of hit singles followed, including “Forever In Your Eyes,” “U Send Me Swingin,” “Someone to Love,” So Fine,” “You Don’t Have to Hurt No More” and “What Kind of Man Would I Be.”
Tony! Toni! Toné! Crashed out of their Oakland neighborhood in 1988 with their Gold debut album Who? Which spawned the hit “Little Walter”. In 1990, to both critical and popular acclaim, their second album The Revival garnered four # 1 Billboard hits including “Feels Good,” “Whatever You Want,” “The Blues” and “It Never Rains (In Southern California)” all went Platinum. Not to mention more hits like “Anniversary,” “Lay Your Head on My Pillow,” and “Slow Wine.”
