Great Album, Bad Promotion
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This album was wonderful and it makes no sense that Blackgirl didn't become one of the bigger groups. I heard that the album didn't sell and it was obviously because they weren't promoted efficiently. Back in 94 when the album came out I saw them in one hair magazine, other than that nothing. The women disappeared fast and the album never got off the ground. The only song I heard on the radio was " (90's Girl ) and that was their worst song. The better ones never got attention from stations and the group was jipped of a great career. They join the ranks of groups like For Real and Mokenstef two groups who never got off the ground. This is a wonderful album for Blackgirl fans, then again if you were truly a Blackgirl fan you'd probably already have their one and only album release."
'90s Girls Attempting To Be '70s Girls

"Blackgirl (Pam Copeland, Nycolia "Tye-V" Turman, and Rochelle Stuart) is an R&B vocal trio that failed to make a lot of hype in '94 and '95. There are very few moments when the hip-hop/new jack sound kick in, which means Blackgirl was basically an attempt to construct a female trio with a 1960s/70s smooth soul style and sound. Treat U Right failed to gain mainstream audience accecptance, which was not surprising in the retro-phobic R&B market. The album hit No. 46 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, and No. 17 on the Heatseekers chart. The first release single, "Lets Do It Again" flirted with slight chart success due to the fact that it was originally done by The Staple Singers in the mid-'70s, which struck No. 25 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks and No. 39 on the Rhythmic Top 40, the second single "90s Girl," which very well might be the worse cut on the album, hit No. 13 on the R&B charts, No. 71 on the Billboard Hot 100, and No. 16 on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles Sales chart, obviously the threesomes biggest hit. Other singles "Where Did We Go Wrong" and "Krazy" broke into the top 40 on the R&B charts, while "Krazy" hit No. 98 on the Billboard Hot 100. Blackgirl were throwbacks of the'70s, just born into the wrong era of music."
Trio From Atlanta
Yes | CA | 07/15/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Blackgirl hailed from Atlanta when they hit the scene in the early with their first single "CRAZY." Although Crazy sounds a little over produced, this cd is one of the better one's that got overlooked during the 90's girl-group revival. Other singles included the powerful girl power of "90's Girl" along with the super (EnVogue inspired) ballad "Where Did We Go Wrong" & the funky reincarnation of Curtis Mayfield's "Let's Do It Again."
Other gems on the cd are "Treat U Right" & my personal favorite "Chains.""
